My mom is going to Ontario next week for a conference and she is taking me with her! We will be visiting my Aunt and Uncle in Cambridge, Ontario for 2 days and then taking the train into Toronto for the 3 day conference. After that we will be heading back to Cambridge for 2 more days with my relatives.
It will be a random, but eventful trip. While we are in Toronto, I will be by myself during the day. I plan on exploring downtown Toronto, doing a little shopping and relaxing while reading my book or cross stitching. We are staying at the Hyatt Regency and it looks like it is a very high end hotel. It has beautiful exercise room with state of the art equipment, so I will probably spend a little time in there too. Maybe I’ll go for a dip in the pool as well!
To my enormous delight, we discovered that Shrek The Musical will be playing in Toronto at the exact same time we are there. I could not be more excited. I made sure to scour the online ticket sellers and I managed to snag 4 front row tickets to the show!!! My Aunt and Uncle will be driving into Toronto to see the show with us too. This is a musical I have wanted to see ever since it first debuted on Broadway a couple years ago. I LOVE the Shrek series and it is so amazing that they have turned the story into a musical. I have to admit that ever since I bought the soundtrack for the musical, I find it really hard to watch the movie without the songs. It’s just not the same anymore. I wish they had thought of a musical version for the movie. Haha. So seeing this musical will definitely be the highlight of our trip. I am such a sucker for broadway. I am hoping to buy a t-shirt from the show at the gift shop. I love theatre memorbilia. I have so many show t-shirts. I love them because every time I wear the shirt, it makes me remember the show that I saw. I wish I could go to NY City and see a different broadway show every night!! Maybe one day, when I will the lottery
One of the main reasons I am actually going with my Mom to Ontario is because I worked for almost 10 months to make a cross stitch of my Uncle and his granddaughter. It was the first cross stitch I have ever made with a photo. I had an online friend use her cross stitching software to convert a photo to a pattern. The result is beautiful and I want to deliver the framed piece in person. There is no way I was going to mail it to him and I don’t want my mom to deliver it without me. I worked so hard on it and so I really want to see my Uncle’s face when I give it to him. This is the best photo I have of the cross stitch at the moment.
We don’t leave until March 18 and so I might be posting before I leave. But if I don’t, you are sure to hear all about my trip when I return on the 24th.
