For those of you that didn’t know, I’m Canadian. For us Canadians, it was our Thanksgiving weekend. I had my mom, one of my nieces and one of my nephews come to visit me in the Capital (Ottawa) to celebrate. Here are some pics showing what this Thanksgiving was like for me this year!
My eldest daughter and I started the day off with a late morning bike ride. Since we gave her a new bike for her birthday, the two of us decided to let her break it in. We rode along the Rideau Canal Western Pathway.
It is so pretty all-year round, so I couldn’t help but to take pics during our ride. We passed certain stops such as Brown’s Inlet
stopped at a monument along the Rideau Canal Western Pathway behind Frank Clair Park (where the CFL’s Ottawa Redblacks call home),
and Patterson Creek because they are so pretty at this time of year.
After our ride, I then turned around, and took the kids outside for a while so my mom and my boyfriend/partner could get some time to cook and some peace and quiet.
Since I didn’t take them out long enough, we went over to one of the many parks in my area to try and burn even more of their energy.
Then we finally got to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner! Let me tell you, Readers, my man can cook! Everything was so good! Thanks, Chef Boyfriend/Partner!
Well, Readers, that was Thanksgiving, 2013 at the Reese Residence in Canada’s capital! It was fun and delicious, and it was good to see a part of my family for a few days. Can’t wait to go home to Toronto and do all of this there!
