As I sat with my bundle of nerves waiting for our turn at the customs booth, I was filled with anticipation for our first family trip to another country. There were so many sights and signs taunting us from just beyond the border, things we could do if that magical man in the booth would just wave us in...and find us a decent parking spot...and give us a few hundred dollars of extra spending money. This did not prove to be the Canada I remembered, where we Americans could walk around like some high falootin' big spenders with our thirty percent exchange rate. We could bawk at the prices because they were sort of make believe since our currency held the upper hand back then. Those were the days (um, for us).
Nevertheless, we were set for adventure! I thought I had accounted for everyone's amusement when I booked our first night at a hotel with an indoor waterpark, but then my son spotted this gem...
|The fireplace held no allure, but a Dutch Indonesian fusion dining experience, while on my ipad, with a wedding going on?! And a value, at that?|
Not only does Canada consider their elderly with regard to traffic alerts, but they perform construction on them as well?
A double rainbow? Don't worry, we kept our wits about us when we saw it.
The hubs was a stick and piece of gum shy from making some extra cash, thankfully. His fascination with the old weathered money that hadn't fallen in was slightly concerning
I'm not sure why they didn't want us to perform any stretching exercises, but believe me, I obeyed.
iPad? cool. The look of using it to photograph the Falls? Not so much.
|That is my daughter's hair creeping in from the left|
We could only assume that there is nothing good on stations with the number 5 in them, as the other numbers were pretty much worn right off.
Oh Kirby, I did get you a green Aero, but it was very warm out...and we were very curious...and well...it was yummy.
Danelle and Stacy, I risked being detained because I could not resist the Cars version of the contraband eggs. I saw no signs posted that they were a forbidden item, plus my collector's item senses were tingling! I believe they are priced much better in Germany though (hence there only being one in this photo).
The science museum in Toronto was fabulous. They were building an incredible amount of structures in the city with several cranes sprinkled around. A good time was had by all...these were just some of the random items!
By the way, the heat and the mist from the Falls? My hair has yet to simmer down (plus the humidity here isn't helping)!
I am sure Stacy is over at her place just loving the weather as well. Go visit and leave her a random "hello"!
