Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend!!
My weekend was pretty insane! I had my mom, dad and sister down from my hometown of Wingham! They got here Saturday morning and stayed until Sunday afternoon! It was tons of fun! On Saturday afternoon we met up with some other cousins and one of my Uncle's in the area and went to a Jays baseball game! I didn't really pay much attention to the game (I never do!) so much as chatted and visited with my family! I obviously snapped some photos... so here they are :).

For dinner on Saturday night we went to this new place near where I live that just opened this summer called the Amsterdam Brewery. It's a massive restaurant with a massive patio right along the water that houses it's own brew house as well (so they make all their own beer).

I don't know why I ordered them. Maybe it's because a big part of me hoped they were going to be as good as the lobster rolls from Rock Lobster. They were not even close, but it did satisfy my craving for seafood. I've been having MASSIVE cravings for seafood lately. I don't know why, but I'm not complaining :).
On Sunday morning we decided to all go out for breakfast. By the time we actually made it out for breakfast though it was already lunch time. I had a hard time deciding where to go but we eventually decided on the Thompson Diner which is on Bathurst/King here in Toronto. I wasn't really feeling the typical "friend breakfast/brunch food" so I got a turkey cobb salad!
It was HUGE and so satisfying. I'm super glad I got that salad over an omelette or something. Then after breaky I took my mom and sister for a walk down Queen St to do a bit of shopping. We didn't find much, I found a dress... shocking.. lol.
No matter where I go I always seem to find something I enjoy. Super awesome for my closet, not at all ideal for my bank account lol.
Needless to say my weekend consisted of no exercise and some semi-poor food choices (I ate a lot of liquorice for some reason). However, I can still feel my shin splints so I'm trying to take it easy on them and let them rest and heal. I think I'm going to have to book some time with my physio and let him do some of that electro-shock stuff on my shins to help it heal quicker. I want them to heal before summer and all this nice weather is gone!
Oh - I totally forgot. Mom brought my some fresh peas in the pods from the local Mennonite farm that's close to where my parents live. Aren't these beautiful!?
And speaking of which - did I ever show you the after math of all the tiling we did in our kitchen? We did the backsplash behind our sink and the tile above our cabinets. Check it! (Because I didn't have enough photos in this post already)..
Q: What did you do this weekend??
Q: Did you have any special family time?
