Big on Bloor

Toronto has a zillion summertime festivals across the city.  Although we have been to quite a few, for some reason this was the first time we got to the one in our own 'hood. 

Yesterday we took the girls to the Big on Bloor Festival and we literally had a ball!

Yes, those are the girls pretending to be hamsters!  It may have cost us $20 for the two of them to have a turn in these things, but it was worth every penny.  They had a blast.

They also volunteered to hold this snake...I was pretty amazed...I don't think I would have done it!

The girls also got free chocolate, freezies and popcorn and we bought them hand made turkey sausages and barbequed corn on the cob for their dinner.  Not the healthiest, but they had so much fun.  I actually think this was the best neighbourhood festival we've been to ever!

Normally I am not at all inspired by the arts and crafts at these events, but there was one vendor selling the most adorable handmade clothes.  I was smitten and liked so many different dresses there, I almost walked away without anything because I couldn't decide.  But Adam insisted I get one (okay, I won't argue).  I absolutely love the one I got and it is dressy enough for work but super comfortable.  Yippee!!

It did rain for a bit (which is why they look wet), but it cleared up pretty quick.  And, frankly, I was thrilled that it wasn't super hot and sunny.  This week is supposed to be!

What did you do this weekend?
