Mom & Walt Vist for the Weekend

This weekend Sara’s parents visited from Friday to Sunday morning. Friday night we spent sitting on our balcony – drinking much too much wine and beer! Actually, we had to send Mom & Walt home in a cab back to the hotel (a $25 cab fare later—oops!) at midnight. Needless to say, when we had to get going that morning everyone was feeling a little worse for wear.

Luckily we managed to pull it together and get on the road for 10am – heading out to Vaughn Mills shopping centre – for the boys to go shopping at Bass Pros Shop and the ladies to visit the rest of the shops in the mall. The guys were done in a short hour, and we all met up for lunch at Johnny Rockets – a cool retro diner-type restaurant that had jukeboxes at each booth and good ol’ American food – everyone had hamburgers (except for Sara – chilli dog was her pick).

After lunch the men headed back home to chill out on the balcony and me & Mom continued on shopping. It was relatively successful. Mom got a full outfit at Fairweather for under $60 and I got 2 new pairs of shoes from Town – fabulously successful! Too bad it took so long to shop though – that mall is huge and tiring – so we didn’t have any steam left for Ikea, we just went home.

We stayed in for dinner that night – Mom & Walt had brought up 4 t-bone steaks for dinner and we had that along with corn on the cob, baked potatoes and a big salad. And after dinner a few more drinks on the balcony! We didn’t overdo it that night though.

Mom & Walt left early on Sunday morning and the rest of the day Seth and I spent cleaning out our closets and dressers, making room for new fall clothes! Haha. Overall, a fairly relaxing weekend – and another one coming up! It’s our one year anniversary on Saturday and we have a romantic dinner planned!

Come back on Sunday for the update!!!

Cheers S & S
