Weekend Recap

We started off our weekend celebrating Dave's birthday.  He opened his gifts and we enjoyed homemade cinnamon buns, his Nana's recipe (by the way Aunt Isabel, they turned out better this time, but still not perfect.  I guess I need more practice). 

For supper we went to Mad Mexican and this time ate in at their new location.

Guacamole and chips, my favourite type of appetizer

On Saturday, it was kind of grey, but still above zero.  I went for a run and then we headed out to do some errands downtown.  We took the subway down to MEC to get a few things (new bike tire, new duffle bag).  

Some signs of spring!

Spadina and Queen. The streetcar spider web.

We ate at the O+B Canteen at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.  While we were waiting for our table, we browsed the gift shop.  E was able to stand at the window with this perfect view of the digger and construction workers.  Day made. 

Turkey Panini, yummy!

E enjoyed his "small" macaroni and cheese.  This was the half portion!

After we got home from downtown and rested on the couch, we walked up to the playground.  It was still chilly, but at least the sun was out.

On Sunday, we played hooky from church and instead went to Canadian Tire and the mall to return some things.  We were able to get E's cleats and shin pads for soccer at Canadian Tire.  We got to rummage through the clearance table and find some Nike cleats for $20 in his size. He was cute running down the aisle in his cleats.  I hope he will enjoy his first organized team sport.

After lunch E and I went to the grocery store, but we made a quick stop at Starbucks for a treat and some selfies. 

We decided to finish up our weekend at another favourite restaurants of ours, Queen Margherita Pizza

Some fried squid for our appetizer.  E ate it right up!

Can you believe that Easter is two weeks away?! I know it is early but this seems really early.  Spring is on its way and we were happy to get a taste of it this weekend at the playground.
