Ruth's Visit

Posted by Hannah on Sunday, August 19, 2012.

This morning I ran 5km in 28:35! I think that must be a record for me, so I'm still hopeful for a 10km in under an hour. Mike is fine now after his gum grafts, but can't eat on the left side of his mouth for 2 weeks!

Anyway, I thought I'd post some photos of what we got up to when Ruth was here last month.

On the Saturday before Ruth headed home we went to Niagara Falls.
We went on the Maid of the Mist

 Took in the views
 And went along the White Water Walk.

We went to a great pizza place for lunch called Bravo! It's kind of tucked away so you have to know about it to find it but's one of the best places to eat in the area.

On Sunday we went to see the Blue Jays play baseball against the Detroit Tigers at the Rogers Centre. This was the first baseball game Mike and I have been to, and it was actually good fun.

 Decked out and ready for the game!

 The obligatory hot dog. It was so big I couldn't manage the popcorn too!
 After the game we went to High Park, walked through the 'zoo' and went to see A Midsummer Night's Dream

 The weather was perfect for it and we ordered pizza from pizza hut online and Ruth and I went to pick it up while Mike guarded our seats! It was packed out by the time we returned.
 The play was really good - definitly recommend it - and we even saw 'Bottom' on the subway on our way home - we followed him all the back the St Clair, but he doesn't live in our building!
 Monday - took it easy but thought we'd take a walk in the ravines in the afternoon, however all the bridges were closed so didn't get very far :(
I'll have to dig out the rest of the photos of the CN Tower, Korean BBQ, Jack Astors etc soon. I think they must still be on the camera...
