11th Wedding Anniversary and Winterlude 2017

Saturday, February 4th was our 11th wedding anniversary.  We spent it by taking the kids downtown to Confederation park to see the ice sculptures and grab a beavertail.  Winterlude officially kicked off this weekend, and it was a gorgeous day.

We spent more time in line waiting to see the ice sculptures up close (they are not finished yet, so we were able to watch them being worked on it was pretty cool to see).  The kids didn't like the waiting (more Mr. K - Mr. J has more patience) and were pushing every button the other one had.....what else would a family outing be without the bickering?

After we made our way through the line, we went and got beavertails.  They are yummy anytime, but nothing beats eating them outside at Winterlude.

We all enjoyed them and then we made our way over to the Rideau Center - hubby wanted me to pick out my favourite chocolates from Purdys as my anniversary gift.

the GIANT heart box hubby got for me :)

Have you ever had a chance to experience Winterlude in Ottawa?


  1. I have never been there but i sure would love to try those beavertails.

  2. Never been but would love to go! I've also never eaten a Beaver tail which is something I need to change, I think!

    1. It's SO much fun - and beavertails are amazing

  3. I've never been to the Winterlude in Ottawa but I have visited the ice castle that was in Edmonton last year, no beavertails there though :-(

  4. No I have never been. Sounds like fun though and I must try a Beavertail sometime too.

  5. Never knew about beavertails.. wish they were here in vancouver.
