We just got back from a day trip to Toronto. We went up yesterday afternoon, got there just after lunchtime so had to feed the boys right away. What better way than with a hot dog from a street vendor? They thought that was kinda neat. Then we bought a transit day pass and rode the subway and the trolley/streetcar. Who needs an amusement park? Since we weren't pressed for time we took many trips around the city on the subway and trolley.
We stayed in Chinatown. What an awesome section of the city. The markets are spilling out onto the sidewalk with the fruits and veggies. The bakeries were awesome too! The people were super friendly. We checked out a bunch of stores and markets. After dinner we went for another ride on the subway. When we got off it was blowing like crazy. It was an incredible wind tunnel! So up the stairs of the subway and whoa! It's pouring....and I mean pouring!! Ten minutes earlier was clear skies. We got absolutely soaked! But since it was about 150 degrees it was okay - actually rather welcoming on such a hot, humid day. Anyhow, it poured the rest of the evening so we had to cut our expedition short. The boys were rather dragged out anyway, and it was 9 p.m.
The card above was made for my in-laws 61st anniversary. My mil loves the color purple. The flowers are cut with nesties and layered. The background is embossed with the cuttlebug folder. Easy and pretty.
I'll try to keep this updated.....oh never mind......I'll get on here when I can!!
