Home Sweet Home!


Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Oh Yeah, Home is Sweet!

I was so happy to visit my hometown... and spend time with my mom, sister and my 2 daughters... and I am also very happy to be back at my home...

I left Quebec City (my hometown) 10 years ago.

That was my first military posting... and since then, I know that I will not move back to Quebec. I don't miss home. I miss my family but I like being a tourist where I grew up and feeling like I am discovering it again and again, especially with my daughters. After a couple of days on temporary duty and took the weekend off to be "home"...

Friday afternoon, I drove to camp to pick up Emma - she had a 48 hours off for her "lifeguard Duty"! - she is up on the chair!!!


I took her for a walk and showed her my HS... I like the view from there, you can see the Saint-Laurence River and the Chateau Frontenac...

and we stopped at the Terrace... See we did as tourists do - we took pictures with the statue!


After that we could not resist the specialty of this neighborhood - Chocolate!
My grand-pa use to treat my sisters and I with a box of this fine chocolate each Easter... Now, Chocolats Favoris (you have to go there if you ever visit Quebec city) serves soft ice cream dipped in chocolate (12 flavors of chocolate!!!)

Emma tried the maple soft ice cream with white chocolate and I had chocolate ice cream covered with café choco...


We had a great time together... and my mom seem to be very emoticon when I gave her a fitbit!!! It might help us to be a little bit closer despite the distance...


And, of course, with each family reunion, food is always part of the celebration! (and I was not counting!).... Hummmm... Home is sweet!

****
I am back home!
I will miss my Maggie - she will spend the next 3 weeks with her father (that is ok, I need a break and Jeff and I are going to Victoria (BC) to hike the west Coast trail...)...

Here is Jeff's favorite friend - she hides in our flower bed!


and I could not come back without bringing home a little sweet treat for my DH!

I picked a Milk Chocolate with Blueberries... emoticon
