Playing Ketchup

Every time I tell my students they need to "catch up" on their work, they think they're hilarious and ask, "Mustard too?" Hardy har har.

Anyway, I'm playing catch up today with pictures from two weekends that I meant to blog about a while back. The first was when my mammy came to visit and the second is when my mammy came to visit (two weekends in a row, aren't I lucky) with my Aunt.

So... let's go!

Here's my mom enjoying a frosty pina colada on a rooftop patio. Next time you order a pina colada, get it with amaretto instead of rum. Ohhhh sooo goooood.
We tried out sushi at a new restaurant that had recently opened near me. Tasted good, but the rolls were very small.
And then we went bike riding to burn all those calories off!
The next weekend when both my mom and aunt came was action packed! We went down to the Harbourfront and took a boat tour that dropped us off midway through at the Toronto Islands.
I had never been to the islands before, so that was pretty fun and was actually a goal of mine to complete for my 36 in 365 challenge.
Here's my aunt, who's either really tiny, or that's quite a large chair.
Next we took the streetcar down to the Beaches and walked along the boardwalk, resting for a few cocktails along the way!
I introduced them to bibimbop at a Korean restaurant. Yum.
And yeah, that was exhausting!


  1. It's nice that you got to spend so much time with your family before you move.

  2. We had a great weekend..... Chicago... next stop!!!
