Back to Ottawa...

Yes, we made it back to Ottawa today...
Left Woodstock at around 9:30 this morning, all loaded up with our trailer, heading for Ottawa. We took our time, observing all speed limits, and stopped to enjoy lunch along the way. Pulled into the Kid's driveway at about 5:00 this afternoon, about 525 kilometers later! Phew... Below is a picture of Prime Minister Harper's House! No, not really, it is Canada's Federal Parliament Buildings, as Ottawa is the Capital City of Canada!

We were welcomed in the driveway, by Emmie and Paige, along with Dad, who just got home from work at CHEO, which is the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Shawn works in in the Neo/Natal Section of this Hospital, and is currently in the second year of a Fellowship, working towards being a Neonatologist.

After we arrived, and watched as Jenn drove in the driveway fresh from work, we decided it was time to go out and enjoy dinner! Shawn choose Mr. B's Restaurant, which is a fine Dining Italian Restaurant! One of my favourites!


We did not have a reservation, but were able to score a nice table for six. The Restaurant was pretty much full for a Wednesday night! We had a fantastic Italian Dinner, the kid's just kept on eating... I enjoyed the lasagne dinner, which was simply "excellent"!

Paige was going over the menu above, while Shawn looks like he was staring off into Space, looking for the new U.S. Mars lander!


At the end of dinner, Emmie had no problem locating Pop Pop's Visa card out of my wallet! What a monster she is!

Judy loves to shop of the all the Grand Kid's, and today was no exception, as she brought them new PJ's. Of course they had to put them on, and model them tonight for us!


The kid's were super excited to have Granny with them tonight, they would not leave her alone!

Tonight was the fun part, now we are down to the serious business of moving the Family! It all starts tomorrow, so let the fun begin!

Welcome to Mark and Lauree, our latest boog followers tonight!

Till tomorrow...



  1. The girls are so cute in their new pj's. Being with family is a special time.

  2. Uma viagem mais bela por ser em família!
    Viva a Grande Toronto!
    Viva o Canadá.

  3. Emmie and Paige are simply beautiful - real cuties for sure.

    Nice looking spot for dinner, I probably would have ordered Lasagna as well.

    Judy did a great job on picking out those PJ's.

  4. Have always for it a long drive to Ottawa from this area of Ontario. But not much family there anymore.
    Glad you had a nice trip and a great dinner with family.
