Carnaval, Carnaval....

Ya, Ya, I know. Haven't updated in awhile.

As I am sure some of you have read on Jeff's blog, we went to the winter carnival in Quebec City a few weeks ago. It was a great time; I love the Carnaval! It was not my first time there but it was Jeff's (and he didn't completely hate it). We went with the other three girls in my program; Steph from Calgary, Danna from Kingston/Belleville and Karine from Quebec City. We stayed at Karine's parent's house - Yay for free!

Here are the four of us: Karine, Steph, Danna and myself.

It has been seven years since I went to Carnaval. Cole, Chelle and I went on our way to Europe. Good times. I thought of the two of you as I was eating my sausage rolled in a pancake. Jeff calls them "morning hot dogs"

We walked around Vieux Qu├ębec a bit and watched some soap-box races. We saw Chateau Frontenac and other fun sites.

During Carnaval, there are ice and snow sculpture contests. Here are a few pics from that.

Here I am attacking Danna...


We all walked around a bit more. I had a cold so I was a big whiner. Here is me drinking "caribou" a traditional drink for the carnaval, which contains brandy, vodka, sherry and port.


We went to Karine's friend Ariane's place for warm wine and nachos. So tasty. Afterwards, we went to a parade but we didn't stay too long as it was freezing out. We went for dinner in a pub in Vieux Quebec.

I love Quebec City; it's so pretty. I think we are going to have to go back when it is nice out.

This makes me insanely jealous. I love Carnaval so much! It was freezing the year we went too, but really "morning hot dogs" make it all better.
