Easter Weekend

I have no events going on this weekend. If we do go out and do something it will be an egg hunt somewhere local. I do have an egg hunt planned for my daughter along with a nice meal with my mom. Sunday a friend from Fort Frances Ontario is visiting, and that is something you can’t even put a price or a value on! You see, I met her online over 7 years ago, and have never actually met her in person. She is one of those people I can talk to every day and never run out of things to say! We’ve gotten married and each had a child since we “met”. I am excited to have her visit me and for us to meet her and her daughter in person!

I am going to show her around Cambridge so she can see what it is like to be here! i’m very excited! (Can’t you tell!)

Picture from the Happily Ever After Ball

I want to thank Hula Hoop Photography  for this amazing photo of my little girl! I have ordered a couple 5x7's and hoping I can get the digital copy to enlarge too!

Happily Ever After Ball

On Saturday I took my daughter to the Happily Ever After Ball

It was put on by a local lady and all proceeds were being donated to the Women’s Crisis Centre. (I did read on Sunday that they raised $1000)

My daughter was static to be able to go, and she had a blast. She is 6 and enjoyed every moment of it. She was fortunate to meet Flynn Ryder and Rapunzel as well as Cinderella

She put her name in for a couple door prizes and did a treasure hunt! They had dancing and they made masks as well as hunted for cinderella’s shoes.

Her favourite part was making a wish and writing it down to put into the wishing well! She loved her jelly beans she received as a thank you for coming!

I hope they put the event on again. I know that as every year passes they will only get better. From a 6 year olds perspective it was a really fun event!

KW Symphony Prog Rock

I was lucky enough to attend the KW Symphony on Friday night to hear and watch them with a special series Prog Rock

Here is how they describe the night

“A sound associated with bands like Pink Floyd, Genesis, and Jethro Tull, Prog Rock explores extended musical structures, intricate patterns and textures, and often esoteric subject matter — giving it a place beyond pop and beside modern greats like Stravinsky and Bartók. Hear a brand new piece for orchestra and a Rush-style Power Trio by acclaimed Canadian composer Nicole Lizée: music that bridges the gaps between old and new, acoustic and electronic, classical and rock.”

I love the symphony, I love everything about listening to what these people can do with their instruments. My husband joined me and he enjoyed it a lot too. I do plan to do more of these nights. He enjoyed this particular one more than I did. It was harder than I enjoyed and the pieces that they played really did fit into what they were going for. Heavy Metal Rock. I’m not a fan of the Rock music so I’m not surprised that I wasn’t a huge fan of what they came up with.

Now nothing says that they weren’t great at how they played. My husband who is a Heavy Metal fan absolutely loved the show and would go back again. They did something right!

I’m very thankful for them as I won the tickets on a twitter contest. Because of that though, I can see us participating in more of their shows! I just have a feeling that next one will be something that I would enjoy more musically. Either way, a great time was had and I enjoyed watching and listening to hear all the different instruments.
