Weekend in Ottawa

Hello there. 
A few weeks back we took a little weekend road trip to Ottawa. My husband was invited to preach, and naturally Benji and I tagged along. The ride there was long, seemed like the longest ever.  Nonetheless, It turned out to be such memorable experience. 




One of the first the best things we have ever done was try beavertales. Basically, for those who don't know, it is like a funnel cake but shaped like a beavers tale, and much better. You can get it with cinnamon or with chocolate on top.  It's just so amazingly tasty that we went back for more the next day.



Another thing we ate on this trip was authentic home-made Italian pizza. The pastor that invited us is Italian, and he makes the best pizza I have ever tasted in my life. No lie. Just remembering it makes my mouth watering.  Mmm... 

 After the service where Ruben preached, the pastor and his wife surprised Benjamin with a birthday cake. It was really sweet, considering this year we couldn't really do anything big for him.  He was so excited and happy. Cutest thing ever.  I'm so grateful for them having done that.  



The last place we went to eat at (yes we ate so much on this trip...) was a little burger joint called BFF (Burgers n' Fries Forever). We met my friend Brenda and she took us to BFF. SOOOO GOOD. Gosh everything we had in Ottawa was so good. If you are ever in Ottawa definetIy try that place.  love that city!! 




The city of Ottawa is so nice. I love everything there. The clever names on shops, the interesting buildings, the scenery...everything!! 



My favourite thing that we did there, and the most memorable was skating on the Canal.

I had actually never gone skating, ever.  So this was, in fact, my first time skating, and I didn't fall!! Yay me. I loved it though. I secretly want to be a professions figure skater now. 

Skating was fun. Skating on the canal, however, was AMAZING!!  I'm dreaming of going again and "gracefully" gliding on the ice... *sigh* 




Benjamin's experience was slightly different. He had a hard time standing on the ice. He finally managed to stand and glide a little.  After the glide he felt he had accomplished greatness, and was done for the day. 

Thanks Brenda for taking us to the canal, for eating more beavertales with us, and for that amazing Flat White from second cup.  I was in heaven! 



In all honesty I left a part of my heart in Ottawa. I'm not entirely sure why but I feel so sad whenever I leave. I'm sure the whole city feels the same way about us leaving. Don't worry Ottawa we shall return soon!!

Why I love January

January is one of my favorite months,  Not only because its the beginning of the new year and it feels like a new start, but because special things happen in this month.

The first thing is that my husband turns a year older. It is special to me for two reasons:
1. He's my husband, and I love him.  So we have to celebrate.
2. Our ages finally equal.  (28=28)
In case you didn't know, I am about 2 months older than my husband. So, from the day of my birthday, up until Ruben's birthday, I get teased for being "older", and being born on different years. It can get quite annoying sometimes. hehe.

The second is my son, Benjamin, was born in this month. Pretty much, the whole month I spend remembering those moment of desperation for finally meeting him and holding him in my arms. It is such a bittersweet time for me.  Sad because he is growing up so fast, and happy because he is growing up healthy.  I know he has to grow up, and I accept it.  I enjoy every stage he goes through, but I can't help but remember and miss baby Benji.

Thirdly, Winter is at it's full force.  I loved that day I walked out and it looked like all the trees had been spray painted white.  Beautiful.  Just beautiful. That's January. The month of snowfalls. I feel by the time February rolls around... we are all sick of the winter, the snow, and the over bearing amounts of layers we wear to keep warm.  In January, though, winter is love!

I can't believe how fast this month has gone by. It will literally be February this weekend. It's incredible to think that before we know it we will be celebrating another new year.  What can we do? Just take the time to take in every moment we go through, and remember.

Three.

My little boy has turned three. I can't believe it. Gosh, He is just growing up too fast.  Next year he will be going to school. It makes me sad. I know that he is growing up, and soon he will a teenager, will like girls, and I will no longer be his favorite person ever!  aahh! 

Well, I guess it's part of life. 
He's just so darn cute right now.
