Every time Will and I visit Maine I always say how much I want to go up to Canada, but for one reason or another we don't, usually because I forgot our passports. This time I made sure I had our passports in my purse before we left on our drive across the country back in November. So once we got up here we picked a day to travel up north.
We had a little bit of a hiccup getting over the boarder, because I had never been to Canada before. So they asked us to go inside the building and asked us a couple of questions, then just told us to have a seat and it would just be a moment. Then they called up just Will and talked to him for a little bit, apparently a red flag came up with his name and asked if he had ever been in trouble, to which he said no, just some speeding tickets when he was younger. They asked him if he was sure, he said yes, and they just let us go (the US had no problem with us coming back in haha). It was one of the weirdest things, now we just need to find out why that red flag came up.

Will's aunt had the week off and was kind enough to indulge my Canadian fancies. We stopped off in the town of Saint George and just walked around looking at all the adorable little shops, and houses. As we were walking we found this delightful little gent, so of course we all took turns posing.
We decided to venture further into Canada and ended up in Saint John's where we went to the farmers market for lunch. This one was almost as wonderful as the one we went to in Kansas City. It was very nice to be inside because it was quite cold outside that day.
We came across this statue as we were checking out some of the local shops, and we took photo, which I think might just be my absolute favorite of Will haha. He got his bear hat while we were in Canada, it was only $5 and is pretty much the best purchase of the day.
We had plans to head back to the mountain house on Thursday, but it is looking like another big snow storm is heading up our way. So we might be staying here a little longer, which is fine by us because we really love it up here.
