Making Mother's Day Memories

Fun in the orchard treehouse

Today was a gorgeous sunny day and Danny whisked Noah and I out to the beautiful Quebec countryside where we hiked Mount Saint-Gregoire, had a picnic in a blossoming apple orchard, and did a cider tasting at Cidrerie Verger Leo Boutin.

After playing in their tree house and a 'ride' on the tractor for Noah, we left with four bottles of cider including a bottle of Prunelle, an aperitive cider made from plums as well as the usual apples. I am looking forward to incorporating it in a dessert somehow!

After growing up in the Canadian Rockies, I still struggle with the use of the word 'mountain' in Quebec, but we did manage to have a nice view from this...well...we'll call it a lookout.

A big Happy Mother's Day to all the mama's out there!!

You and your SON Noah look so happy and carefree - what great photos. And are those apple blossoms? Lovely! Would have loved to tag along on this outing, sounds like it was a good one. I too have a hard time calling the mountains where we live "mountains." To me mountains need to be snow-capped, colossal craggy rocks that one could only dream of scaling with highly specialized equipment. Like good old Bulkley Valley Mountains:)
