Weekend Recap

Our weekend is ongoing, since today is a holiday.  Have I mentioned I love long weekends?  Not that I don't like working, but to have a little break every once in awhile is nice.

On Thursday night Dave's parents arrived for the weekend.  On Friday, E stayed home from school and Dave took a holiday too.  Dave set to work on the shed.  He is rebuilding one of the walls since the circa 1953 construction was failing and would not support his new shelves and cabinets.  He had to pour some cement to build up the wall, and then he did the framing and put in a new window.  His dad helped him do a lot of this this weekend and it looks great.

Dave's mom and E kept busy tidying up the yard, going to the park, and running errands.  On Friday night, our friend from Switzerland came to stay with us for the night.  We had a nice dinner of BBQ'd bacon cheeseburgers and french fries.  

On Saturday morning we got up early, leaving E at home with Dave's parents and went golfing.  This was my first round of the year.  I did alright, 109.  

On Saturday evening, we said good bye to Kevin as he flew back to Geneva.  We were sorry we didn't have a longer visit and sorry that Allison couldn't come too.  Hopefully we make it over to visit them soon.  

We went for supper at Queen Margherita Pizza. Everyone enjoyed their meal. 

We walked home through the playground.  Grandma and E jumped together on this.

I took this picture looking up in our backyard.  I love the evening light.

On Sunday morning, E and I went to church.  Dave and his parents stayed home to keep working on the shed and cleaning up the backyard.  In the afternoon we climbed on our bikes and went down to the waterfront and then High Park.  It was a glorious day.  

We were all tired when we got home but we did stay up for Mad Men!!  I love that show, I am sad it is over. 

We still have lots of plans for today - a picnic lunch at the park, dinner out for Dave and I, and some live music at the Horseshoe Tavern.  I'll post some pics of these things later.
