Wave Decks

leave a comment »

For Toronto, it's pretty amazing something like this ever got built.

I love the new wave decks are harbourfront. Some kids use them as slides.

I'd be a little worried about splinters...

Some adults get in on the fun too.

National Parrot

Maybe the parrot was there to see the tall ships, or is that just a stereotype?

This parrot and it’s owner were out celebrating Canada Day earlier this month.

Tall Ships

How small can a tall ship be and still be called tall?

Karen took us to see the tall ships at harbourfront on Canada day.

The Move

This is a  timelapse from our move in May of last year. It served me well but was the smallest one bedroom apartment I’ve every come across.

Mennonite Doll

I really want to see an old order Mennonite barn raising some day...

An old order Mennonite doll we came upon in an antique store in Kitchener. The old orders don’t like it when you take their pictures…so I had to settle for a doll.

Spring Colours

with 2 comments

I love funky paint jobs on houses. You see this more on the east coast. I suppose the best I can hope for in Toronto is a funky door.

This photo was taken on April 11th 2010. (More than 3 months ago.) A good friend gave Tonya and I some good advice for our upcoming wedding. She suggested we should allow ourselves a few moments during the day to stop and take it all in because it will be over in a flash. Good advice for the summer too. I can’t believe we’re half way through July already! It feels like this photo was taken just yesterday…
