S: OUR TRIPS TO OTTAWA, MONTREAL & LAS VEGAS
FC: Our Vacations
1: In the summer of 2010 we took a trip to Las Vegas for a week. We stayed at the Mandalay Bay hotel. We also visited the Grand Canyon. This is the SUV that we rented on our trip. The kids really enjoyed Vegas. Me, I found my favourite vacation destination! In the summer of 2011, we visited Ottawa and Montreal. One of the highlights of the Ottawa trip could not be captured on camera unfortunately. It was the Mosaic light show with the Parliament building as a backdrop. It was an incredible presentation that made us proud to be Canadians. The building in the background of this page is an upscale shopping mall in the Old Montreal.

24: Old Montreal is very beautiful. The small section of Montreal is filled old European style restaurants, cafes and historic buildings. It is the oldest area of Montreal. We stopped at the famous Olive Et Gourmando restaurant in Old Montreal for lunch. Although we waited 40 minutes for a table, the food was worth the wait. Ryan says the sandwich he had was the best he has ever tasted!
