This year, as a combined Mother's and Father's Day gift my brother and I (and our families) took our folks to an amazing restaurant hidden away in the small town of Chelsea, Quebec called Les Fougeres. Now, this type of restaurant is not the kind we head to regularly....for many reasons, any dinners we are lucky enough to eat out at are usually pub-style. Les Fougeres presents local fare where possible, and with a price tag that may lead one to believe that it isn't for most....especially those with children. Not so! I would venture to say, that it is one of the most child friendly restaurant we have eaten at. It provides really amazing food for adults while accomodating the little ones and their own personal take on what gourmet is. There is lots of space for kids to run around, and no shortage of things to look at around the grounds.
A view of the enchanted forest through the eyes of a tire swing. I am sure there are fairies in them woods. You can just tell.
A small view of the gardens that is where the herbs and veggies are gathered to make the meals. Also, the beautiful flowers that grace the tables.
The swings that are to be enjoyed by kids of all ages. Good, old-school swings on long ropes that allow for long graceful glides...the grandmother of swings....the opposite of swings setup in parks today.
Needless to say, it was an amazing way to spend the morning.
