Sweet Shot Tuesday in Quebec City

Today is Sweet Shot Tuesday with Darcy at My3Boybarians.
Sweet Shot Day
These are just a few of my favourite photos from our trip to Quebec City a few weeks ago. 

But if I had to choose just one favourite it would have to be the one above.
Why? Because of what it captures.
You see, my two youngest daughters are listening intently to a french tour guide at St. Anne de Beaupre Basillica.  She is giving the tour in french, and my children are listening.
I couldn't understand a word.
But after attending French Immersion school they could.  All of it.
It was amazing to me.

This is a photo taken in another church, one of the oldest in Quebec.
The girls lit a candle in memory of their Papa.

This is just one of many streets we walked along during our ten day stay.
They were everywhere.
Vieux Quebec was a photographer's dream.

PS  Blogger wants to have lots of big white spaces today, not sure why, but it bugs me.
Just wanted you to know that I know and that I'm not a sloppy big spaced (out) blogger.

  1. Love sharing the trip with you here!
    Beautiful pictures that tell a great story!
    Colorful like skittles, Yes!!! The Bungalow will be looking sweet soon, I'm sure!
    Do they have a Spanish Immersion school. I had to help Em study for a test tomorrow. The text book is written in Spanish. I am not going to be much help this year, I'm afraid.
    Have a great week!
