Trip to Quebec




We had a wonderful vacation!!! It was full of great adventures, awesome memories, lots of laughs and lets not forget amazing food! We started our vacation by going dog sledding with my brother in law Ben. It was pretty much the funnest thing I have ever done.


Micah and Eben enjoyed a great ride together.


We got a lot of great video footage and I can't wait to see what kind of movie Micah comes up with. But for now here is a little movie trailer featuring some great clips of our adventure.

The next day we packed up the family and headed out to the sugar shack.



We don't have any movie put together of that yet but I can't wait to see what Micah comes up with for a movie. Last year when we were at the sugar shack we were closing down the shop by cleaning all the buckets this year they were still in the middle of production. We got to see the syrup being boiled down and canned. Then we enjoyed a delicious sugar shack meal before we headed out to collect the sap in the buckets.



When all the work was done we got a delicious treat of maple toffee.






While hanging out at Ben and Jo's the kids loved playing with their new kitten Bilbo



Not sure who Bilbo will miss more. Adventurous Eben or quite Jaelyn! hehehe

We spent our last night of vacation in Quebec city with good friends. It was our friend Sera's first visit to the city so we braved the snow and cold to take her to the old city to see the sites.



It was also the first time our friends Simon and Alex's little guy Theo got to meet Jaelyn.



Today we are trying to get back to our regular scheduled program!

Wow, what an awesome trip. One of my dreams has always been to participate in the Iditarod...think I would make a good musher.

We also love Maple Syrup..remember days back home when my grandparents would make it...oh the smell...think I can still smell all those amazing smells.

I will just live vicariously through you. LOL
