On Friday E celebrated Chinese New Year at school, they did Tai Chi and had a parade around the school with their homemade instruments. When he got home from school, he was tired so he relaxed on the couch to watch some Dinosaur Train. I took this picture because I wondered where this teenager had come from.
Our new babysitter came over (she lives on our street!) to look after the boys while Dave and I went out for dinner. We had some gift cards for the Keg so we went to the one on King West. I ordered my usual prime rib and it was so yummy!

Saturday morning came quickly but we were up and at 'em for skiing. Dave skied in the morning and then I skied in the afternoon with E. He is skiing so well, it was much less stressful than I thought it would be. It also helped that we were with other kids and parents so we could follow them down the hill.

Ready for the slopes
Dave and Q took a walk over to see us at the lift and snapped some photos.

On Sunday morning, we decided to skip church since E and I were both feeling a little under the weather. While Dave went for his run, we watched The Parent Trap (with young Lindsay Lohan). It was pretty cute and I think E enjoyed it. Then he and Dave hopped on the subway to go to Monster Truck Jam at the Skydome. Dave had kept it a surprise so E was pretty excited when he found out where he was going.
E's favourite truck
While they were gone, Q napped and I did some tidying around the house. Then we went to Walmart (my favourite place, especially on a Sunday afternoon #sarcasm) to get some stuff for our trip, like sunscreen, baby wipes, etc. We had planned to go out for supper after the monster truck show but Dave and E were both tired so I whipped up some macaroni and cheese and took some sausage rolls out of the freezer for a cozy supper. We finished our evening with the Raptors game and an episode of Mr. Selfridge.
