Father's Day Surprise ~ Family Fun Weekend

For Father's Day this year, I decided to surprise J with a trip to Montreal. The main reason: flow riding.

Before the wave got turned on.

I got us passes to Biodome, the Insectarium and the Botanical Gardens, which we did Saturday. Sunday morning we spent an hour on the wave at Maeva before coming home. It was a whirlwind weekend but so fun! I'll share pictures from our adventures in separate posts because there are so many.

I told the kids my plan and told them to keep it a secret from their dad until the Friday before we were leaving. They were rock stars. We only told J that we had something planned for the whole weekend and that we'd be driving.

In the Botanical Gardens.

He's no dummy and had a pretty good idea where we were going, but I think he was still surprised.

When J got home from work that Friday, the kids gave him the cards and presents they made at school plus a special card to let him know about our upcoming adventure. They had drawn a cruise ship and a wave, and all sorts of animals.

We were already packed and ready to go. Little J even packed for his dad - you should have seen the things he grabbed like J's grubby, working on the car shorts!

As per tradition, I asked the kids these questions about their dad. Their answers are more mature than past years and the little conversations they had are cute!
