A little Big City fun!

This past week, we ventured to the "BIG"city of Toronto. I love Toronto. i love the hussle and bussle of the streets, I love the variety of restaurants, shops and fun things to do. I think it's a wonderful city to visit! Rene worked at the Royal York Hotel on Front st. for three years BC(before children). So we have spent many...many nights enjoying what Toronto has to offer.
For our little vacation with the kids, we decided to stay at the Delta Chelsea hotel downtown T.O. This is a FAB hotel to stay at with the kids. They have two pools in the hotel. The second floor pool is the "family"pool. Equiped with a family hot tub and water slide. Plus they have an arcade and activity room where the kids can make a craft, read a book, cuddle up with the bunny rabbit or play the ever so popular game of Wii. The second pool is on the 25th floor for adult only enjoyment. A little more peaceful up there.

We enjoyed many of the city sites. CN tower, Eaton Centre, The old Spaggetti Factory, Midevial Times , The CNE, the underground mall(aka the path) . I really was not sure how well I would do at the CN Tower? I'm O.k with hights but the glass floor through me for a loop. i could NOT watch the kids and Rene walk on it. Too much for me thanks! I found it a little on the pricey side as well. It cost us $77.00 and change to go up the tower. That's it, just up the tower. I thought that to be a little much!

Over all we had a great time and even managed to sneek in a visit with our good friends, The Closs Family and check out their beautiful new home.

When we arrived home, we got news that my cousin Tara had just delivered her precious baby boy Sawyer. So we had to meet the new addition to our family the next day. Both Tara and Sawyer are doing well and daddy Jarett is enjoying his new son. Tara and Jarett will make wonderful parents and we are so happy for them both and lucky for us they only live 5 mins away so we can get our "baby fix" whenever I want.
FYI( I am having a problem gettting the pics to come at the end of the post. Sorry!)
