  • Another birthday

    This evening, to celebrate my wife’s birthday, we got a babysitter and went out to Su, a Turkish restaurant in the southern part of Montreal. On the way there, I tried using Waze to navigate. Note to future self: don’t attempt to use Waze to navigate. Or at least not in Montreal. That may not […]

  • A visit to the zoo

    It’s unclear why, but I couldn’t get to sleep until about 3 this morning, and I still had to get up early to prep the kids for our visit to the zoo. When we got back from the zoo, although La Serpiente flaked out for two hours, Destroyer slept for less than half an hour […]

Apart from another twenty minutes on the way home, of course. We lost La Serpiente’s sunglasses (ssh … she hasn’t realised yet) about the same time that we got […]

  • Oaklawn Farm Zoo

    This afternoon we drove to the Oaklawn Farm Zoo, a sprawling site in the middle of farmland near Aylesford. When I heard about a farm zoo, I assumed a few cows and a mangy old horse, but as well as the obligatory pigs, rabbits and chickens, there are two tigers, three lions, leopards, jaguars, cougars, […]
