Papa et Kiki
For Father's Day, we decided to head out to Six Flags La Ronde amusement park with Keira. It was a gorgeous sunny day. We teamed up with another parent and bought season passes to La Ronde so that this year, whenever we found ourselves bored to the hilt, we'll head on out to the amusement park and spend our day there. We're hoping this year, Keira will be interested and stay up a bit later to view the fireworks competition, held every year here in Montreal. As much as she begs to stay up late and once in a blue moon she's got the energy to howl at the moon at midnight, mostly she pretty much KOs by 9:30pm. I know, tough for us right? Heck, she's been known to put herself to bed! lol.
Rubadubdub! Actually, think it's called Le Joyeux Moussaillon
We had a pretty super day on Father's Day spending the whole day at the amusement park while the Mister and I reminisced about him working there as a teenager and me going there doing all the crazy rides. I've got to dig out that photo of myself in that rubadubdub tub ride (we call it rubadubdub tub but I think it's really called the Joyeux Moussaillon ride) when I was a toddler.
With school finally over, Keira was invited by her school chum yesterday to head back to La Ronde and they spent the entire glorious day there (with her school chum's mum). I was a bit worried as the temperature climbed to 32º C (89ºf), feeling more like 40º (104ºf) with the humidex. But no worries, after spending more than 6 hours outside, the girls still had crazy energy leftover afterwards!
Ahhh! I don't want to fall....
