Labour(less) Weekend

Yep, this picture pretty much sums up how I feel after this long weekend!

M's parents came down to Toronto for the weekend to celebrate their birthdays and anniversary and to see their favourite son and daughter-in-law!

We started off at the Hispanic Fiesta which is basically the best festival ever. Food, drinks, music, beautiful weather.. the works. The plate of nachos below was $7, feeds two people (or more), and is soooo delicious! Oh ooohhh, the empanadas.. they were warm and crispy and delightful, and oh, I can't forget about the churros.. soft and chewy.. and oh my goodness, you get the picture.

The sangria was tasty too!

On Sunday we hit up The Ex (oh baby) and I was once again reminded why I hate people. Here's M's mom playing the shoot the target game. No luck!

In the evening we made our way to the Molson Amphitheatre to see The Killers. Holy moly, it was one of the best concerts I've ever seen. We had seats on the lawn, but they actually weren't too bad at all. And they cost $10 each. In total. No fees. Amazing.

I wanted to start a fight with the couple behind me because they talked (yelled) to each other through the ENTIRE concert. Who pays to see a concert then carries on a conversation the whole time?? And then there were the people in front of us who were dancing crazily, making out, and taking pics with the police officers.. until they seemed to get kicked out for underage drinking. Bahahhaha.

The end of the concert was an extravaganza with all my favourite songs in a row plus blasts of confetti. Yay!

Now it's back to reality. Only.... approximately 289 days until my next summer vacation starts!
