Everyday life: Ottawa birthday road trip

Last week was my birthday, but since it fell on a Thursday and everyone was at school and working late, my birthday festivities were postponed till the weekend. And off we went to Ottawa with pit stops along the way in Hudson, Hawsberry and Vankleek. Saturday rained all day, but we still made the best of it. Sunday was spent downtown with some flea market and antique finds. I got a beautiful bronze sculpture of a young boy as my birthday gift. The man said it was probably from the 1930s. 
All in all another great road trip and a fun birthday!

Holy cow!

View from our hotel window. Marathon anyone?

This was the bridge back to Ottawa from our hotel in Gatineau. Full of runners. Lots of detours and directions from helpful cops to get us back downtown.
