Friday Favourites


We had a very busy week.  Of course Monday was the eclipse.  We walked down to the river so we could get a good glimpse and see if there was any changes related to the birds.  It was clear at the beginning but was cloudy for most of the first bit and then cleared up a bit while it was at 99% totality (or whatever percentage it was here in Toronto) and then we saw a bit at the end.  

We only had three sets of glasses so Dave and I had to share and this is why he is pouting here. 

It got dark and cold and the streetlights came on, not sure if you can really see it in this photo.  It was pretty neat even though we had the cloud cover. 

Also on Monday we all got to go to the Maple Leafs game.  Our neighbour had some tickets to give us, which was so nice!  They were not together so Q and I started our night in the upper section, but then Dave and E said no one was sitting next to them in the Platinum section so we joined them for the second and third periods.
Q is the only one with Leafs' gear.

We got all of the things.

They were playing the Pittsburgh Penguins! We love Sidney Crosby!

Together! We enjoyed the game, saw Matthews' 65th goal of the season, and especially the overtime win by the Leafs.

Q got a new bike this week too. Dave found a used one to buy him, and it is perfect.  It has gears which will make it easier to go up the hills.  And since he has t-ball, soccer, and ball hockey at High Park this summer, we will be using those bike lanes as much as possible.

Dave's parents were here for a couple of days this week and took E down to the curling event downtown. Not the real Brad Gushue...

...but this is the real Rachel Homan and Emma Miskew!

It's every golf fan's favourite weekend - the Masters! We will be watching as much as possible.

Yesterday I shared some photos of our new entryway, you can click that out if I missed it. 

Linking up with Andrea and Erika.


  1. Aw, too bad for Dave that he had to share! LOL. We had enough glasses for us all but we ended up sharing anyway since most everyone else we knew didn't have any so we kept passing them around.

  2. It sounds like the eclipse was a great experience for you. The ice hockey game looks like a lot of fun!

  3. No eclipse for us this time, I think ours was last year and I missed it! I'm catching up and will pop over now to check out your entryway :)Have a lovely weekend!
