Montreal's way of celebrating St. Patrick's day...By Kim

The boys and I are having a wonderful weekend with our frog. The time whizzes by and before we know it, our time together is up! Oh the day that we will not have to wait for the whirlwind weekend that we can spend together,and just be able to be together all the time, I hope that day comes soon.

But for now, this is our life, as we have it.

We went to the wonderful cinema Guzzo, to see the shaggy dog, great movie for kids and somewhat entertaining for adults..(ppff, I laughed and cried, so I guess it was more than somewhat entertaining for me:)

We went to the "sugar shack", which at first I was like..Huh?!..Because in Chicago, the "sugar shack" is a male strip club...But alas, it was exactly what the term implied a shack for sugar:) maple syrup to be exact, and boy was it good!!!! We ate a really lovely dinner there, and you guessed it, they put maple syrup on everything, so it was a very sweet and interesting tasting of different foods! We ended our visit there with going into the real sugar shack, which consisted of a small hut, with long tables filled with snow, and the guy puts hot maple syrup over the snow, you take a stick and roll it..mmmmmmmmmmmm it is so good!! They also had a little farm with a llama, that pickles kept saying was sneezing on him, but in fact the llama was spitting on him...Only him that could happen to!

The St. Patrick's day parade in Montreal is quite impressive, I will try to upload a couple of pictures, during the middle of it, the snow started falling quite heavily and while waiting for the next group of people to come around the corner, a guy in a thong with his pants around his ankles decided to join the parade as well, he would have done well at the very beginning as he had much enthusiasm for the holiday!!

Wow, sounds awesome!

Turns out, we are leaving for a vacation in Montreal on Sunday. If you have any tips for me, I'd love to hear them! Especially for child-friendly restaurants/ things to do.

SUGAR SHACK... the one we went to was CAD7 for kids, CAD14 for adults and you get to eat till your stomach is waaaaay too full for you to move from your chair (well you dont have to do that, but technically you can)... you put mapple syrup on all your dish and mmm how good it is
