What a busy weekend! That's my only complaint with going to Bowmanville, we seem to have so much to squeeze into such a short time. We tried out Grandma's new GPS and headed to Auntie B's office (my old office). Everyone was surprised and glad to see Ella. We haven't been to the office since Ella was in the stroller. I can't believe how everyone has aged!! I guess it's not been good times in the stock market the last 7 years. It was really nice to see my friends again, there sure are a lot of new faces. My good friend was off Thursday, which was disappointing. It cost us $20 to park downtown (just over an hour). We stayed at Belinda and Stefan's house. Uncle Stefan works for Elections Ontario and had to be away -Ella was very unhappy about that. I don't know where Ella has come up with this face from, but it's appearing in more and more pictures lately :)
After lunch we headed over to the museum's family centre (the old library). They have a great display up for Girl Guide's 100th Anniversary I remember going to the 75th anniversary celebration, how did we get to 100 already. Charlynne was largely responsible for most of the displays. Needless to say I'm in a lot of the pictures too :) Not too many pictures from the 'old days' didn't have the two of us in them. We were both rather shy and so did everything together. The kids had fun playing in the old tents. These are almost like the tents we started camping in, except that ours had canvas floors not wooden ones. They still had that canvas tent smell -lol.
The kids (and Andrew) built a tower of Girl Guide cookies, well the boxes anyway. They did a good job, I didn't think they would get it as high as they did. We spent a good couple hours at the library. Then we said our goodbyes and we headed over to the big Chapter's -Momma can't pass up the opportunity to rummage around a big book store. Ella doesn't mind either because they have Thomas the Train set to play with in the kid's section (and a chair for Grandma).
All in all a really good weekend. And after today's board meeting, that should be the end of the craziness. I'll be able to stay home and get some work/sewing done.
