Lunette goes to Ottawa

On Friday I had to go to Ottawa and thought this would be a great time to 
take Lunette and show her Canada's Capitol

Ottawa is about 4 hours from us so we got ready for a road trip.

We stopped along the way to stretch our legs and to look at the lakes and rivers.

When we arrived downtown, we saw a Military band marching towards Parliament Hill

Many people had gathered in front of the Parliament buildings 

....looking over their heads we saw why.
The changing of the guards took place.

How cool is that??

 After watching the marching band and military drills performed by the Ceremonial Guard for a while we got hot and decided to go see the Rideau Canal
in the back of Parliament Hill.
In the winter it is the longest outdoor skating ring.

Lunette climbed on one of the cast iron fences to pose for a picture.

It was getting very hot and we spend the rest of our stay shopping in 
air conditioned stores 
and then made our way back home

We stopped along the way in Petawawa where our family lived years ago
to show Lunette the Ottawa River with all the little islands.
Can you see how dry the grass is?

We had a wonderful trip and Lunette enjoyed all the things she saw.
This week she will say good bye to us and Canada.
WI guess it's time to start packing ......
