What did people do to record their special moments before cameras were invented? Scrolls, cave drawings, paintings? Frankly I'm glad it's so easy to photograph our family events and activities. Although I do sometimes go overboard. But then I have this blog as an excuse.
This Insta-Friday is not entirely "Insta." I am mixing photos from my cell phone camera and my Nikon camera, because I carried both of them around with me this week. I recorded two fun days, starting with a visit to the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival on Sunday (above).
My daughter got a last-minute invite to a friend's house and she was quite happy to ditch us. That's okay, it's nice to spend a day with the boy without acting as referee between him and his sister. Here are the boy and his dad in front of the CN Tower.
The festival takes place at Toronto's Harbourfront. It was a sunny but not-too-warm day, perfect for hanging at the lakefront.
There was lots to see and of course eat. Lunch is the best part.
Seeing so many people enjoying the water really made me want to get a boat.
Tuesday was another good day. My sister came by for a visit. First on her list is always a thrift store visit. Actually, first on her list was braiding my hair. She then gave herself the same hairstyle so we kind of looked like dorks.
My sister searches the thrift shops very thoroughly. You can't plan much else for that day if you're going shopping with her.
Except for all-you-can-eat sushi, of course. We were so hungry from shopping we played around with my cell phone cam to distract ourselves for the few minutes we had to wait for the food to arrive.
Check out my sister's necklace. She got that at the thrift store. I wanted it. But she didn't give in. She usually does. Maybe she'll grow tired of it and change her mind. Are you reading this, Nancy?
Have a fantastic weekend everybody!
