10 fun things to do with the family this weekend (May 13-15)

It’s finally the weekend, yay! After another week of work, we find ourselves happily with the family and it is an opportunity to do great activities together. For now, the weather (at least in Montreal) will be very nice on Saturday and stormy on Sunday. That leaves us at least one day where we can take advantage of the good weather and organize one or two outings. Moreover, if you are looking for ideas, we suggest the following ten activities. Pleasure guaranteed!

Go to brunch at the restaurant

What could be better on the weekend than going to a restaurant for brunch?! What’s more, it’s a good thing because l’Oeufrier has unveiled a decadent menu where lobster is in the spotlight. Enjoy your choice of lobster Mac’n’cheese, lobster poutine, lobster rolls, lobster grilled cheese or lobster Bene Joe. Yum!

It may seem like a very boring activity, but landscaping the yard as a family has the potential to create some great times together! It also allows you to combine the useful with the pleasant. Put on some good music, dance, have fun and clean up the yard!

If you are one of the lucky ones who have already opened their pool and whose water is warm enough, I strongly encourage you to take a dip, especially during the day on Saturday! If you don’t have a pool, some municipal water games are open. Check with your borough or city.

Stroll through the flowering orchards

Several varieties of apple trees are currently in bloom in the orchards of Quebec, and it’s a spectacle that is magnificent to see! Find out if the orchard near you welcomes visitors and if the apple trees are in bloom before you go. And if the answers to these two questions are “yes”, get everyone in the car and enjoy a great day at the orchard!

Psst. We recommend a walk in the Domaine Lafrance orchard, in the Laurentians. It is magic!
