Hello and Goodbye

Monday of this week was a bank holiday here in Canadaland and my how the sun shone!  It was a blistering day and we took full advantage of Nana and Grandad’s last day to get out and about.

We headed into town to explore the fun fair, it was Neirin’s first fun fair outing but he took to it like a pro.  Mummy and Daddy managed to suck up the horror of the prices and enjoy instead their offspring’s abundant excitement.

Once the coupons dried up we headed into the shade for a relax and a sweet treat.

Except for Daddy, he wasn’t allowed one…

After all that excitement we needed to cool off so we decamped to one of my favourite spots in Ottawa, the Arboretum.

Dinner at our favourite riverside pub rounded out the day perfectly, it is certainly one we won’t forget in a hurry.  All too soon it was time to say goodbye to Nana and Grandad, two weeks seem to have flown by but we’ll be seeing them again next spring when we visit the UK.  Hopefully we’ve made enough good memories to last us until then.

We’ll see you soon Nana and Grandad, thanks for visiting!

    Excellent fun fair preparation you are doing. Don’t have a roller coaster partner!

      I think at least one if not both of the boys could be your future fun fair ride along!
