Quebec City

While we were in in Levis for the hockey tournament, it was also Carnaval in Quebec City.  There were all sorts of activities happening.  First we decided to try the luge.

The entire course was made of ice.  It was a fast and furious ride but the kids loved it.

That is an outdoor skating area down from our hotel – we never did get around to trying it but it looked so pretty all lit up.

Fun! Looking at your pictures makes me miss Quebec City. I used to go many times a year for so long. And now I haven't been probably in our ten years :(
