AKA Cramming All My Favourite Things About Canada In To One Week
Our trip to Ottawa was so short that we literally had a spreadsheet to try and pack in everything we wanted to do/see/eat/buy. But it worked, we did well! The trip was super hectic but really fun.
✔ Bulk Barn. Zingy zaps! :D What a great store. I should open one in Melbourne, y/y?
✔ Hang out with Grandma and Grandpa, and MEP and Paul. Grandpa was really good at Sushi Go Party!
✔ Costco poutine. Best value poutine in the whole country, imo.
✔ Lots and lots of Shouldice strawberries.
✔ Hanging out with the Monnon’s (including MJ!) and Laurie. We made burgers and an enormous salad for dinner. I hadn’t actually seen Bill and Suzanne since our wedding party at their house, which was way way way too long.
✔ Lots of sister time with Rosemarie (aka Tina Belcher).
✔ Dozens of games of Seven Wonders, because Rosemarie couldn’t figure out how to win.
✔ Celebrating my non-birthday. Breakfast cake! Also squeezing in one last game of Seven Wonders before going out for Canada Day.
