Fun Day with Jo and Glo

I took Jonah and Glory to the movie theater in Frisco this morning to see "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul." 


After the movie, they chose Sonic for their meal. Why I'm not really sure as we have one here in town and that doesn't really seem like a treat. Honestly, I was not shocked at their choice though.



After the "Blasts," we walked through a couple of stores in the mall. We ended up at Target for some fun shopping!

They sure are growing up too fast!

Canada

Marilyn, Cheyrl, and I went on our summer girls' trip this past week. We went to the Montreal and Quebec City area. We did walking tours of both cities. We absolutely fell in love with Quebec City. The city is so rich in history.

Money exchanging proved to be no problem. Because of previous trips and experiences, the Canadian one-dollar and two-dollar coins (loonies and toonies) were a breeze.

However, we did find it interesting and sometimes challenging to speak to people in the different areas. French and English languages are not too similar! The most difficulty proved to be putting gas in the rental car. Sounds like it would be easy, but trying to read those pumps and follow their directions (in French) forced us to sometimes make new friends at the pump.

Some of the Montreal highlights included:  Rue St. Paul Street, Notre Dame Basilica, and the Old Port.

Quebec City highlights included:  Our Lady of the Cape Shrine, the Chateau Frontenac, The Wall, Montmorency Falls, Saint Anne-de-Beaupre,  and the Funicular Elevator (which takes you from the Lower to the Upper part of Old City Quebec).







The pastries were to die for. 


And somehow...we always find ice cream. This was unbelievable -- a salted caramel dipped ice cream cone!
