So taking a vacation is exactly what the doctor ordered! This past week was a lot of fun! It all started last Friday when my friend V and I drove up to A's Cottage for a Girls Weekend. It was heaven. A bunch of great ladies, good food, and beautiful scenary.
Here's a view from the dock
A is my crafty gal pal so she made some chimes out of old spoons
We ended up learning how to shoot. 8 gals with a .22 calibre rifle. Yup. I did pretty good too!
We had a lobsterfest on the dock with lots and lots of butter. There was no dieting on this trip!
The night was so clear and beautiful. I saw 3 shooting stars! (And no, they were not satellites. Real shooting stars!) I made 3 wishes too!
I really missed hubby and the kids. Baby bunny missed me a lot too. I have to give kudos to hubby for watching the kids for the 3 days.
Later in the week, we went to the Art Gallery of Ontario. I don't even bother trying to get them to smile. One is always coming from one direction while the other is going the other way. I saw the Picasso exhibit but through the eyes of my little ones. I heard things like "he's naked!" and "what's that?" and "she's sad!" I took the kids in the middle of the week because once Joshie starts school in September, we will only be able to visit on weekends :( The kids also love going to the AGO because it means going to the Chinatown bakery beforehand for sticky buns and cookies.
By the end of the week, I was exhausted but my cousin had tickets to go to Fashion Fridays on Cityline so 4 of us went down to be audience members. This has been a tradition for the last 3 years! I ended up downtown at 8:20am - record time ever! I missed my GO train so I ended up driving and got there at the same time as the train.
Here's a pic of Dundas Square... I can't believe how much it has changed over the years. I remember when there were no ads and no big retailers.
Next week will be our chillaxing week before school starts. I'd better get started on kiddo's new backpack!
