Our plan for this weekend was to head over to Yonge Street for the Open Street festival. After waking up late and taking our sweet time to get ready, however, the festivities were over by the time we arrived. Fortunately, there always seems to be 10 festivals on the go at any given time in Toronto so we just headed over to Spadina to check out the Chinatown street festival.
On Tuesday, Elizabeth's Aunt Vicki treated us to a Cirque du Soleil show, Luzia! It was a birthday gift for both of us, although Luke's birthday isn't until December. We're not complaining - the show was unbelievable!
This weekend Luke’s parents were around so we ended up doing lots of new things, like joining the crowds at the Taste of the Danforth food festival, and teaching Elizabeth how to hit a golf ball at the driving range. The real highlight of the weekend, though, was our trip to Toronto Zoo.
Toronto seems to have an endless stream of free festivals running throughout the year. This weekend was the Jazz Festival Streetfest, so we headed back out to the Beaches neighbourhood to check it out.
We had another busy weekend with Elizabeth's family, scavenging for clues around U of T after dark and exploring the beauty that is High Park!
After a day of slowly cooking ourselves out in the sun on Toronto Islands on Saturday, we opted for an indoor activity on Sunday in a large, air conditioned building - the Aga Khan Museum of Islamic Art.
This weekend the weather was great, so we made the most of it and headed down to the Beaches for a stroll in the sun, hitting up Woodbine Beach and Glen Stewart Ravine.
We're Elizabeth and Luke.
