For Christmas this year, Casey and I gave Danielle a weekend away to Montreal. We were booked from Thursday to Sunday at the Hilton Bonaventure.
It''s about 5 hours from New Hampshire to Montreal. About 3 Days prior to our trip Casey began planning what movies she was going to watch from the back seat.. I was to be the Co-Pilot and Danielle the DRIVER. My job as Co-pilot was solely to fetch any item the DRIVER deemed important at any given time. The co-pilot is also in charge of the DIRECTIONS. It may sound important, but it really wasn''t. The DRIVER (who could recite the DIRECTIONS to you Forward and Backward) amuses herself by screeching at the Co-pilot every 30 minutes "What exit are we looking for..??? "
I will not embarrass or incriminate my sister by launching into a huge paragraph about the parking garage located at the Hilton Bonaventure.. But for anyone who is interested, the actual height of a 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe is 6.16 feet. The actual height of the parking garage at the Hilton Bonaventure is about 2 inches smaller than that.
Friday we had a HUGE DAY:
It was 50 beautiful degrees outside.. We used the Montreal Metro (subway) and Casey met her first homeless man looking for money. We had breakfast at Eggspectations.. the food was unbelievable.. and had dinner at an Italian restaurant where they grill your veggies in a mixture of Butter and Honey.. We gambled at the Montreal Casino: Casey was the Big Winner of us all because she broke even. We visited the Biodome, it was like an indoor zoo/museum. The Incectasirnum (?) @ the Biodome.. (kinda creepy) and the Notre Dame Basilica.
Friday night the one English weather station there was reported a huge storm with tornado like winds would be occurring on Saturday afternoon.. (we were suppose to leave on Sunday Morning.. ) So we packed it in a day early and left on Saturday morning. We hope to go back in the spring when the weather is nice, and I have my movies all picked out, because Casey''s going to be the Co-pilot.
