black & white wednesday, { parliament hill }

parliament hill

Yesterday we went downtown on an errand to the passport office. Since we were there we decided to walk on over to Parliament Hill. Honestly, I thought this kind of thing would be boring for a child? Not Lilah. She kept saying to me, "Let's follow the peoples". Of course they were on a tour and I really didn't want to be on a tour and listen to all the history. I know, I'm bad like that. But we did look around and even made it up to the peace tower, which is right under the clock. It was my first visit and it was pretty neat.

One of the security guards asked Lilah how old she was and she totally pretended to be shy and wouldn't tell him. So I told him she was two. He said to her, "Oh, you're two, are you?". She looked at him with a little sass and said, "No, I'm two and free twarters!". Funny girl.

On our walk back to the car we stopped and had a street vendor hot dog. She looked at me with a big grin and said "We're having so much fun Mama!". We are so blessed to have such a positive happy girl.

I've added several black & white pictures below. The set (in colour) is here.
