A Fun Day!

What a day we had yesterday! We decided to hit the city, Toronto that is, to check out the One of a Kind Christmas Show. We have never been before, and with all the craftiness going on around here, it seemed like the perfect year to check it out.
So we packed ourselves up early and hit the road. The One of a Kind Show was just amazing! The people, the artists, their work and the atmosphere were lovely and inspiring. We took a couple of hours to walk around taking in everything the artists had to share.  Reece was super happy to find himself a new friend...a frog, who he has been named Finn, and Justin and I were happy to enjoy the show and talk with some of the artists.

After the show, Reece was mesmerized by a wall of water in the lobby of the Direct Energy Center, so we had to stop so he could see it up close, touch it and feel the water. And yes it was a huge hit!

As we headed outside to the car, we were amazed at what a lovely day it was, so our plans of heading home changed. Instead we headed to the Eaton Center for a little walk and to check out the Christmas decorations. And it didn’t disappoint. From large trees decorated with Swarkorski crystals to giant reindeer's decked out in lights, Reece was amazed, as were Justin and I.  We had a great time walking around; acting like tourists in a city we don’t visit to often.

With a quick check of the watch, we knew it was time to head home. As we drove, Reece slept soundly in the back seat and I began reading Beyond the Rainbow Bridge out loud, so Justin could share in this lovely book.

A wonderful, fun and inspiring day!


  1. Finn is so sweet, but not as sweet as that last photo - too cute. It looks as though you had a really lovely day.

  2. Awe, thanks Theresa. There is something so cute about sleeping babies...love it!

    We did have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by.
