    We visited Toronto and did all sorts of fun touristy things and then sat on a rooftop downtown.
    The weather was lovely this weekend.

    (Though I was quite unhappy to get a parking ticket in the Distillery District. No signage or anything, pulled into a spot vacated by locals and we had even PAID for parking.

  9. yay!
