What a beautiful morning, sun was shining, hubby was home, we were ready to enjoy a great day together, preferably away from the house. Rather than finalize the paint colours (I'm so baaaad!) we made an impromptu visit to my sister's, basically raiding her fridge of the food that was stocked up by my parents for her to eat this weekend. That's what big sisters are for, aren't they?
We woke up this morning and realized that Ian had only had a visit with his new niece that one time on the day she was born, at the hospital. She's now a whole month old! Time flies by when you're having fun, doesn't it? And she just keeps getting cuter, and cuter; and chubbier and chubbier.
So this is new niece number one, lovely baby J:
Now with her very proud, very giggly cousins- check her cute church lady "Oh" :
She even gave the kids a fleeting little smile (or gas grimace, but we like to think it was the former).
After our visit, we headed to the Buskerfest which was held in St. Lawrence Market - very "a propos", as we have our wedding anniversary coming up and this was the first neighbourhood we lived in when we were married. En route, just to get us in the mood, I suppose, I spotted and actually got a picture while hanging out of my so-downtown minivan, of this guy:
Anyway, to be honest, we were a bit disappointed with the Fest, primarily because we couldn't see any of the acts. It was a bit too crowded, and the girlie had fallen asleep so we weren't exactly mobile with the huge Lincoln style stroller butting through the crowds. There were a lot of vendors, which, (and I hate to say this because you know how much I like to shop), were more of a distraction and made the crowds worse. There was a lot of clapping around certain areas, but that's the most frustrating, to hear all the appreciation but not have a clue what was going on!
So we ended up buying the little guy an orange balloon sword, a few extra Croc charms, and then headed home. But not before I got a picture of this:
All I can say is, "Interesting". I don't like facial tissue THAT much.
But at least we were downtown on a lovely summer day, visiting with adorable family and able to savour one of the last real weekends of the season before school starts.
