The One Where I Bore You With All My Holiday Photos

I LOVE Quebec.  Really.

So, when my friend Julie (who is the great photographer responsible for the header and profile pictures on my site) invited us to her time-share at a resort in The Laurentians, I knew I would move mountains to get our family there. 

And actually, getting us there was no small feat since we have been unable to go anywhere as a family for the past year.  WHY?  you ask.   Well, we had a Honda Civic, which holds only 3 carseats even though we have 4 children.  So we bought a Mazda5 last weekend and we broke it in by driving 600km to Quebec.

And may I just say that my kids were FABULOUS in the car?  Not a single word of complaint or fighting.  Just.  Totally.  Awesome.  Is it OK that I think my kids are The Best?

Here's our photo essay:

  1. Beautiful photos! Looks like an awesome time :)

  2. I'm envious. Of the location, the weather, and your little one's orange hat. I totally would wear an orange hat. *snicker* Then I could be the Cat in the Hat.

  3. Looks like a great vacation, Patti. Tell me more about the Mazda.... how does it do with 4 carseats? We have a small sedan with 3 carseats across, but I often wonder if we have a 4th baby what type of car to get... -Kerry

  4. Looks like you all had a great time! Excellent.
