Family Vacation Part 3: Spiders, Bears, and Characters

Date August 23, 2008

We spent a serious day of moseying around the area of our hotel on Sunday.

Probably one of my favorite pictures from the trip was a hastily snatched moment of full family cooperation around a dancing bear statue in a courtyard we stumbled upon:

We also encountered a massive spider outside the art museum (click the image to view a larger version):

Alana tried out her Mission Impossible skills at a large war memorial:

And Carson tried out what it would be like to be memorialized on a coin at the Ottawa mint:

Carson also transformed himself into Obi Wan Wilson with a hotel bathrobe:

And Alana tried out my sunglasses:

All in all, we had a fairly action-packed day+ in Ottawa. We also managed to squeeze in a swim in the hotel pool, check out the locks that ran right past the hotel (waiting long enough to watch three boats move from one lock to another…if not all the way through the entire process), and take in a light show that was performed on the side of the main parliament building. From there, it was on to Rangeley, Maine on Monday…
