Chinese Settlers

I feel like the weekend just FLEW by! And, after only one day back at work (it was actually an all-day training class), I'm ready for the weekend again. ;-)

Saturday Logan and I pretty much bummed it at home all day while Jon took the day to himself, hanging out with some of his work buddies at a nearby work function, going to the gym and running some errands. That night we went to Armadillo Willy's for dinner and Logan LOVED the food and stuffed himself silly! Sunday morning Logan and I met up with the Jodoins and Chouns at Vasona Park to ride the train (while Jon got our car serviced). Logan was enthralled with the whole experience so we actually went twice. ;-) I didn't bring my camera but hopefully I'll get a few copies from friends...

Afterward, we all RACED to Stacks for a noon-time reservation (where Jon met up with us) and enjoyed a really delicious brunch. Again, Logan did a great job at eating! (tho, he's a very slow eater, like his Mommy, and was the last one at the table). Once we were done it was well past naptime. The Chouns headed home and we invited ourselves over to the Jodoin's house :) to put the boys down and then play a game of Settlers (what a surprise). We had a really nice visit; Logan always loves playing with Robert!

Monday was my day "off" so I left Daddy and Logan to hang out (I think they went to the mall and ran errands and played outside) while I met up with my good friend Catherine.

We had lunch in the city and then went on the Chinatown Walking Tour. We weren't sure what to expect but we had SO MUCH FUN. It was about a 2.5 hr walk (so I was pretty tired and my back was a wee bit sore afterward) but it was extremely interesting and the history of the city was so fascinating. We definitely walked away with a new level of respect for the city!

(I took MANY pics along the way - click on any of these to get to the full album.)

Thanks again for a wonderful day Catherine! What's next on our list?? ;-)
