The Adventure Starts Here: O Canada!

O Canada!

Last Wednesday the family went up to Toronto to see Luke graduate from University of Toronto. Chris and I left and mom and dad left a few hours later. It was a fun 9 hour drive... good thing there was Swiss Chalet for dinner to look forward to! That night when Chris and I got in we met up with Luke and Tyler for a little while and then went straight to bed... we were exhausted!

Thursday was the big day for our little Luke. Luke went to St. Michael's College in U of T, so part of the graduation was a Catholic Mass in the morning. We picked Luke up in his Harry Potterish Graduation robes and headed over to the church.

The actual graduation was in the afternoon, and in his actual college, around 580 were graduating. They called everyone's names, 2 at a time, so the ceremony took a while, but it was very fun to see Luke go up and get his diploma. Mom and I got a little snap happy and took pictures of EVERYTHING! That night Luke and Tyler took us to their favorite Vegan restaurant. Yes, the Luke that used to pass on salad and order double meat is now a Vegan! So that night we all experienced what Vegan food is :)

Friday, mom, dad, Chris, and I went to visit my cousin Chad and his family about an hour outside Toronto. We had dinner there and played with their 4 little girls. Chris made fast friends with the 2 older girls, Katelyn and Kiera. They played soccer and softball and really wore Chris out! It was a lot of fun to see them, since I hadn't met the 3 younger girls and I hadn't seen Katelyn since she was just a baby many years ago. I also learned that Chad and Katelyn read this blog every Sunday... so Hi Chad and Katelyn!

Saturday we met Tyler's parents for lunch at Swiss Chalet (yes, we had it again... we LOVE it!). Then we went to see my Uncle Richard for a little while and then Luke, Tyler, Chris and I went to the Harry Potter Exhibit since we really are just little kids at heart! I think Luke, Tyler and I were way more into it than Chris was, but he was a good sport :)

Saturday night since my parents left Toronto early to go see my cousin Laura and their new baby in Niagara, it was just the 4 of us to hang out. Since Luke and Tyler are vegan and they knew we really wanted to go to the Keg (steak and seafood), we decided to split up for dinner and meet up after to go out. It was a great night, but I was very full afterwards! That was our whole trip... it was a lot of fun, with a long car ride to end it all.

Next weekend is my bridal shower (yeah yeah, I hate surprises), and I can't wait for it. So stay tuned for pictures posted from that :)
