This weekend was, as usual, pretty busy. We went to a party at A's:

Church, a farewell picnic for P:
P's Farewell Picnic

And Shakespeare in the Park (Mid Summer Night's Dream) for Mom's birthday:

We also had a practise run at my hairdo for the wedding, got bows to decorate the church, flowers and ribbons for the flower girl, clasps for my wedding dress, and went out for lunch at Bear's dumpling restaurant.

It was a good weekend, but I'm really tired now. Dentist this morning, then to work :(

Weekend Madness

Course registration was on Thurs. Both Mom and I successfully got into the courses we wanted, although there was some difficulty as they changed the schedule the day before registration. Although I checked the schedule to make sure they hadn't done that, they changed it in the afternoon and I checked it in the morning. For people with PhDs in organizing, it is the most disorganized school experience I've ever had.

On Sat. PI and I got up early to go to the plate rental place for the wedding. We now have plates, table cloths, etc. Note to anyone planning a wedding, plates are WAY more expensive than you think they'll be :P

After that we went to pick up Tree for the combined baby shower at the JRs. Yay photos!

When that was done and we'd taken Tree home, we went to SF's birthday party. We had a great time with Trivial Pursuit, Guitar Hero, chocolate fondue, cake....and took more photos!
S's Birthday

On Sun. we slept A LOT and arrived very late at Mom's to do wedding tables and go out for dinner. We went to Summerlicious at Auberge, and it was fantastic! If anyone can afford to eat there, possibly the best food in the city!

Contratulations C and C!

C and C got married on Friday and we all had a wonderful time at their wedding :) They had an open candy bar which was awesome.

Here are a few of the photos we took.

Rather unexpectedly, last night we ended up at the sci-fi convention that used to be Tcon, Polaris. We had a great time and, hopefully we will be free next year to spend more time there.

Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend, We've survived ours :P

Here are some pics from our weekend in K. We had a lot of time to practise some new stuff w/ the camera and try out the new lens. Enjoy :D (you can click on the slide show to view the pics as usual)

In wedding news, rings are done and sitting at home now :D Also, at least 1 bride's maid has had a fitting and now almost has a dress! Things are still progressing nicely. Phalse was all over town yesterday picking up centre piece bits that are no longer stocked so every store had 1 or 2, but no more than 3. He managed to get enough, though, and I think they'll be great :D
