On Thursday morning.. my mum arrived from Ontario…
|taken today at the Forks during our Ride!
I had a crazy day at work..so wasn’t able to pick her up at the airport. So organized her with a list of instructions/address to my apartment, arranged with the super in my building to let her in… and then I had to wait for the super to call to say she arrived! Her plane landed at 9:37am.. and by 10:35am I had a call–mum was at my apartment. Let’s just say the rest of the day was good, but I kept thinking I can’t wait to get home!!!
|Sunday at the Forks… self portrait…
We headed out for Thai…where I had my B-day dinner… and had a ‘FEAST’ of food! Friday, I got up and headed to work… and then we headed to the Moose Games on Friday and then Saturday night!
These shots were taken with my iPhone… a quick shot of the warm-up!
Saturday night the Moose retired Mike Keane’s #12 Jersery, and raised it to the roof.
Mum and I were there… had tickets in the ‘upper’ bowl.. it was sold out house!
My cousin got a goal in that game.. and then we all went out to dinner after! We didn’t get home until 1:30am…(apparently my ‘late’ nights are rubbing off on my mum!)
Sunday morning, after a lazy start we headed down to the Forks! I had what has become my FAVOURITE thing… from the Pancake House! Banana Choc. Chip Pancakes—have you had them? If not.. you NEED to try them! which always remind me of Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancake” song…
We wandered around.. up to the look out… and then sat on a bench where we sat at Easter last year when Mum came out to visit.. You can look at those photos HERE
(I had a bit redder hair!) it was a gorgeous way to spend the afternoon…it was about +5C!
There were TONS of people out on the River Trail…
..a shot of the look out tower, at the Forks…
We decided to go on the ‘free’ wagon ride… pulled by two horses! It was great fun… during our short ride.. it started to snow, the temps had dropped as well! After some hot chocolate and a look at the fantastic toy shop… we headed home!
All in all it’s been a busy but FUN few days!! 🙂 I’m sure there will be much more fun happening over the remaining days she is out visiting!!
