Lantern Magic

On Saturday night we made the trip to the east end of Montreal to see the Chinese Lanterns and pumpkins at le Jardin Botanique. Apparently we weren't the only ones with this marvelous idea...

We knew something was up when it took us an hour to get there, which is normally a 20-min drive, then there were about 200 cars just waiting to get into the parking lot! After finally getting a spot, we saw the lineups... to pay for parking... and then the lineups at the entrance. Since it was already bedtime for the girls, we strolled around the parking lot trying to get a peek though the fence, drank hot chocolate, and the DROVE HOME AGAIN!

Thanks G+G for accompanying us. Thank-you Alice and Estelle for being so very patient. We'll try again later this week...
