I was a little less apprehensive this time around, though I was a little worried MiniM.E. would be bored to tears, require us to carry her all over Montreal, and would only be happy doing things like climbing stairs or playing in mulch.
Just like last year, MiniM.E. was a fantastic traveler and my worrying was for nothing. We all had a great time.
Last year, MiniM.E. loved the hotel. I have to say, between petting the fuzzy ropes at the check-in desk, climbing the stairs in the lobby and taking everything off the shelves in the gift shop, I'm pretty sure it was still her favorite part of the trip.

MiniM.E. enjoyed the festival a lot more than last year because she did a lot less napping and a lot more running, playing, listening, climbing, and jumping this year.
The Festival had a really cute play area for kids that MiniM.E. LOVED and asked to go to the whole time we were there (we stupidly brought her there pretty early on the first day... from then on, it was "play the piano" and "go to the sandbox")
When we weren't at the kids' area, we saw a few concerts and walked around a lot.
We went to see a Canada Day Parade (which lasted more than 2 hours.... we lasted about 90 minutes...)
Played on the benches
Ate lots of snacks
Threw pennies in the fountain
And had some down time in the hotel
Even though there was so much to do outside, MiniM.E. still wanted to swim in the pool... multiple times a day...
