No? Well OK then. I'm not picky. But I sure would like to HEAR FROM YOU. Don't make me do another post about Roman Polanski, people!
End of lecture. Sigh. Moving on:
We spent all of last weekend just hanging out. Still recovering from the previous week's activities extravaganza, we were happy to keep cooley cool boys. (name that show!)
We managed to get organized enough to go down the the Jardin Botanique (that's Botanical Gardens for all you unilingual types) to see all the awesome Halloween stuff.
Liliane's favourite word these days is citrouille (see-troo-ee - Frenchy town speak for pumpkin)
so it was like vocab nirvana once we made it past endless greenhouses of distinctly NON-Halloween cacti, bonzai and the like.
Look! 2010 Olympics themed pumpkins!
In stripes we trust.
The biggest see-troo-ee of them all!
You might even say, The Great Pumpkin. If you're a Halloween special-nerd like me, that is.
Crappy photo karma.
Case in point: this is the BEST photo I could find of her with some actual decorated pumpkins. And no, she's not sitting on a prickly pear or anything, I promise.
After the pumpkins we headed outside to meet up with our pals Julie, Joyce and little Rosie (Liliane's BFF, we mothers have decided) to check out the lanterns.
There was a super cool outdoor play area for the kiddos to burn off steam and to take some cool photos:
And away we go...
We still had a little light left in the sky which made for some yummy photo ops. I could have photographed that place for hours, it was gorgeous.
Julie and Rosie having a bit of a singalong.
As an aside, I will let you all know that Rosie has since come down with croup. We're keeping an eye on Liliane in case Rosie decided to share her croup as best friends are wont to do. So far, so good.
Again with the photo karma.
Let me get this straight... If you get sick tomorrow, you should be all good by the weekend. I'll wait to get it next week so we can still hook up for Halloween, kay?
Five dollars is a very small price to pay for 45 minutes of metro ride's worth of entertainment.
Voilà. Are you happy now? No more silent treatment?
In other news... anyone else so OVER hearing about the H1N1 virus? We here at NPLH will all be receiving the vaccine as soon as it becomes available - you? Thoughts? Discuss!
I'll be back soon, no whining. Unless it is in the form of a COMMENT. Ahem.
