I hope you’re having a great week and I so hope you are loving all of our posts… I think they are so amazing ifidosaysomyself LOL
We are all in Montreal again.. we helped settle my father into the rehabilitation facility for his hip AGAIN.. and therapy has begun AGAIN.. it seems like he is recovering at a more rapid pace this time but his mindset is still quite negative so it is VERY tough.. but we are plowing through it hoping things will get better. Meanwhile we are enjoying the city .. actually showing the kidlets where we are from.. from our old houses where we lived to restaurants we went to as kids to McGill University where I graduated from.. going for walks and of course ending almost every night with this.. please note MAJOR DIET STARTS in AUGUST LOL.
Ryan discovered this ice cream place called “LA DIPERIE”… omg the concept of this place is that you order vanilla soft serve, then they have 30 hot dips to dip the vanilla into… dips like coffee crisp.. dulce de leche.. oreo cookie, banana, … AND THEN.. wait for it… wait for it… they dip THAT into any TOPPING you want.. like oreos.. coffee crisp.. hazelnuts.. fleur de sel.. lavender.. smarties.. you name it.. is that INSANE OR WHAT?
Here’s Tyler with his OREO dip and OREO TOPPING
Here’s Jayden with her COOKIE DOUGH dip and OREO TOPPING. I CANNOT EVEN…
we also tried to teach the kids about the Montreal “joie de vivre”.. just the feeling I used to have growing up… We randomly walked into this restaurant and found Ryan’s oldest friend and his family.. we pulled tables together, drinks flowing.. laughing.. reminiscing.. it was just the therapy and nostalgia I needed.. We then went to St. Viateur bagel at 11:30 PM.. a Montreal institution.. and couldn’t help MAWING (it’s my word for shoving down my throat) the FRESH HOT WOOD BURNING OVEN BAGELS …. sooooo good. If you ever have a chance to visit Montreal you HAVE to go to St. Viateur. Promise? k
