Weekend (and Halloween) Recap

 We had a busy weekend, but lots of fun.  On Friday afternoon we went up to the ski show to get some new gear for the kids.  We only found something for Q as E needs race skis and the selection for that wasn't that good.  And Dave got a new golf club! I know, what were the golf people doing at the ski show? Same consumer base I guess.

It had been PJ day for Q's class, hence his outfit.

Then I went downtown and met some friends for dinner at Selva.  It was kind of like Rainforest Cafe in there. 

The food was good but it wasn't really our scene so we went to the lobby bar at the Fairmont Royal York.  I love this place, it's so comfortable and classy and great for people watching.

How pretty is this martini?

And we talked one of our law school classmates who was also in town to join us.  It was fun to reminiscence!

It was a late night so I was slow to get moving the next day!! Dave was golfing at the Pumpkin Scramble. 

I tidied the house and took Q to swimming.  Then we picked out our pumpkins and got ready to host our friends for supper.  We made pizzas and everyone got to help.  Of course I only remembered to take one photo!

On Sunday we went to church. I worked on some reading with Q in the afternoon while Dave took E out to get his ski gear.

The boys got suited up to make sure they are set for the ski season.

We worked on our pumpkins after that.

The kids were ready for Halloween on Monday.  They get to wear their costumes to school.

I drove E and B to school that day since it was raining and I didn't want their costumes to get wet.  E is Legolas from Lord of the Rings.

I also went to the school to catch the costume parade for grades K to 3. I wasn't sure I had time but I'm glad I fit it in as Q was happy to see me.

Ready for trick or treating.

Q had a great haul of candy. E went around the neighbourhood but then went up near the school with his friends.  He was out a bit later but managed to get less candy. He did score a full size Mint Aero that  I am trying to get off him!

I'll be back on Friday to share some favourites from the week. 


  1. The rainforest place is very colourful but the bar definitely looks more relaxing. Your pumpkin carvings are absolutely amazing. Sounds like you all had a fun Halloween!

  2. Oh my gosh what a fun week! The boys are precious in their costumes and those ski outfit pictures are getting me all excited for ski season!! How nice that you were able to meet up with old friends for dinner and a drink or two. Its always hard to get moving the next morning, but 100% worth it to catch up with old friends.

  3. Such a fun post. Your girls night looks like so much fun. Love the halloween costumes. so cute...and they got lots of candy! I hope you've had a great weekend.
