Ottawa, eh?

I’ve been up in Ottawa, Ontario, this week for some fun at work. All of the locals are celebrating the fact that winter has finally loosened its grasp on the city. Apparently they have had 20+ feet of snow this winter. The sight of dirty snow piles in the shade of the big buildings is a strange scene, especially when it was nearly 80 degrees here yesterday. Needless to say the clothes I packed are a bit too warm.

Ottawa seems like a nice town. I’m sure it will be beautiful in about a month when things are cleaned up a bit and everything starts to bloom. Apparently there’s quite the tulip festival toward the middle/end of May.

This is the scene outside of one of the art museums. Julie would love this:

And here are a few more scenes from the Ontario tourism site:

Luckily it doesn’t look that cold outside my window.

I’ll be home very early Saturday morning, which should guarantee that I’m all but worthless for the weekend. It sounds like my lovelies are all doing just fine without me. Maybe Gwenyth is starting to miss me. Love you girls.

  1. Nice pics. Just for your info every time I go outside & back inside Gwen calls from the other room, “Daddy, Daddy, is dat you?” We are all missing you–get home soon and try to pick up a Frankenstein mask somewhere for the party Saturday night–don’t worry I already have the leotard and tu tu that you WILL be wearing! I’m afraid you will be coming home to one of the busiest days we’ve had in a long time! Brunch/pedicures @ 10, Aubrey’s baptism, mud football, & the party.

  2. Brian,
    Glad that you are kind of enjoying Ottowa. Thanks for calling on my birthday. That was a very thoughtful thing to do! I was on my birthday date with Mason at the ball game. Hope to see you guys soon.

  3. Hey Guys. I clicked on your google ads so that you can earn some moo-la. Can we go to the jazz lounge and eat another delicious bleu cheese steak and creamed corn with the profits? No need to thank me for my contribution. Just call when the fundage is adequate for Skye Lounge.
