Wednesday we adventured down to the Taste of Edmonton with Andrea and her husband Mike, Marguerite and her husband Brent. It was very busy, but very fun, and nice to spend sometime outside enjoying the good food and great friends.
Thursday Anthony, Nathan and I went to Capital Ex to take in the sights and sounds, and also to see "Walking with the Dinosaurs" which was so awesome, especially the T-Rex. Nathan also managed to go on some rides, and he is quite the ride junkie, just like his Mom. We stayed late to be able to see the fireworks. That was Nathan's first time seeing fireworks in person, and he thought they were pretty cool.
Friday I went with Andrea for supper on Whyte Avenue. We were feeling adventurous so we tried out a new restaurant called Cafe Mosaics. I have walked by it many times, and had always wanted to try it out, and Andrea was up for something different so we went. It is a vegetarian restaurant, and very good...especially the vegan chocolate cake which was so yummy...mmm mmm good! Then we browsed some of the neat little shops, and had a fun time at Chapters looking at the bargain books, and the little "extras" there.
Sunday my parents took the 3 of us out for brunch at the Nisku Inn. We haven't done this for awhile so it was very nice. We also stopped to check out IKEA, which is always fun.
This evening I'm off to go golfing with the girls. I haven't golfed in quite awhile so this could be interesting.
I think I'm going to need a few days to recuperate from this social schedule!!!
While my social schedule has been very full, my creative schedule has been a little empty, but I did manage to finally finish the wedding canvas I was working on for my sister-in-law Marcy, and my new brother-in-law Jon. This was my first attempt at a canvas, and I'm pleased with how it turned out. A HUGE thanks for super Andrea, for letting me completely lift her awesome canvas, and also for picking out the beautiful KI paper....love ya Andrea!!!!
Hope you have a great week!
