During our weekend in Quebec, Signal was introduced to the joys of almost-open-air dining. My parents had a sunroom added to their house this summer, and so every meal of the day, rain or shine, was eaten in there. It was fabulous! There are blinds in the roof if it is too sunny, and windows that can be slid open or shut to customize the airflow. It looks out over the pool and the back yard, so you can easily watch people swim without sitting in the baking heat. Heaven, I tell you.
Signal seemed to especially like eating breakfast in the sunroom. Wearing only his pj bottoms, he liked sitting in the 27 year old highchair (yes folks, it was mine!) and eating cereal and fruit with Oma. Here he is one morning, munching on barley cereal with apples and apricots.
It was a very relaxing time. We took advantage of my parents' air conditioning and their swimming pool. We ate extravagant home-cooked meals. We hung out with extended family and caught up with people we hadn't seen in a very long time. It absolutely made Ru and I want to move back to Quebec. To be less than 9 hours away from the place where I grew up. We are tentatively working on a two year plan. Should be interesting.
Stay tuned to Hedda for tomorrow's post which, like my highchair, will include a great blast from the past.
