We had several interruptions during the night. Firstly there was a loud bang and I tapped Huffle and he went and looked followed by me (I was his backup just in case!) It wasn't the children, no pictures had fallen off the wall, the basement was still standing....... Next we were woken by a high pitched squealing noise, which after lots of investigation, ie Huffle, a wind up torch and the window, we wondered if it was a Raccoon issuing it's mating call. Bloody hell, mate on someone else driveway and perhaps at a more reasonable time!
This morning we had pancakes and left mid morning for Toronto for the Blue Jays Baseball game against Kansas City Royals. We had a good journey in and went straight to the ground where there was much entertainment set up outside for the kids. Both of ours got to pitch a ball to see if they could hit the glove, slugging practice with a floating ball and a speed gun assessed pitch of a ball (Snallest pitched at 22 and Small at 36). We all got tattooed and then the boys had caricatures drawn of them which were very funny and quickly drawn.
We went inside and the boys played the game they normally play where they drop a ball and win a prize (they won three money box hats and a water bottle between them). We had really good seats and the roof was open, with no-one in front of us but it was in direct sun and Smallest was too hot so we moved up and into the shade. We were high up but still had good seats with not many around us and the ability to move into the sun or shade as required.
It was a great game to start with and the Blue Jays were easily winning. The Kansas starting pitcher had such a bad start that they had to swap him very early. Huffle clapped him off sarcastically. But then the bluejays got so far ahead it started to get a bit slow and Smallest got a bit bored. There were quite a few toilet breaks and one check to see if the games were still on. The Blue Jays won 12-2 Whoppeeee - shame on you Kansas City and Dorothy!
We walked to the pizza place, picked our slices of pizza and drink and sat next to the harbour. It was so hot and very busy. After pizza we went for Gelato at our favourite ice cream shop and sat on the harbour again watching the boats.
We came home in the big heavy traffic, driving along with the non courteous muppets. We didn't get home till 7pm ish, the boys had a quick piece of toast and a bit of TV while Huffle and I had a lovely cup of tea on the porch. We are making the most of any time we get to sit and look at the garden and enjoy the wildlife visiting (but not those randy raccoons!).
I forgot to say how nice the Australian Dairy Milk was the other night. We both thought the taste far exceeded that of the Canadian chocolate and was very similar to UK chocolate but perhaps not as creamy. We are always willing to try chocolate from ANY country should anyone wish us to do a taste test in the future.
* on the scoreboard it said the pitchers name with the initials RHP next to his surname. I though it was his first name and said "what kind of a name is rhp?" I actually thought it was his initials until Huffle said "ha that means Right Handed Pitcher DOH!" OH SILLY ME!
