Our city is currently building light rail transit. This means that some of our main streets are temporarily closed due to construction and about every week or so we need to find a new way to get places as different areas are blocked off. The main street for our uptown will be closed for nine months which is a little crazy. I really hope all the businesses survive.
Then we finished off our evening with an exciting trip to Wal-Mart. We found this flavour of chip and Dave, who is normally up for anything, especially if it includes bacon, decided to pass. Why can't they make my favourite
chips crisps from England -- roast beef and mustard? I have such fond memories of those.
On Sunday morning we went to church and then we headed off to a Waterloo Siskins' game. Rachel walked all the way to the rec complex, where the game was, and back, which is a 5 kilometre (3 mile) walk there and back. I was really impressed with her. Sam walked all the way home so Dave and I are looking forward to a Chariot free future soon.
Then we came home and made supper. I tried a new recipe, Broccoli Tots, which turned out really well. Rachel ate two of them so we'll call it a win. (Sam ate half of one, maybe, so we'll just ignore that.)
And The Birds Rained Down by Jocelyn Saucier. It was pretty good, although a little odd.
And that was the end of our weekend. We had some good family time. We got some things down. We just didn't have a lot of downtime. Maybe next weekend...
