Surprise, surprise.....

My Mum is awesome at giving surprises. Last spring, she asked me to go with her on a bus trip to see Canada Blooms, a flower and gardening convention in Toronto. I went to the pick up site and to my surprise, there was my little sister Courtney, and my Mum's best friend Nancy! They were coming to the convention with us! Then last year, she took Joel and I to see Dirty Dancing, and as we were standing in line at the restaurant, my little sister and her boyfriend Jay came walking in and stood behind us! I didn't even notice them until Joel poked me and was like....umm....Mom....!! So a while back she called and asked me to go on a bus trip with her. Of course I said yes...I love hanging out with my Mum and going on a bus trip is an added bonus! She did not tell me where we were going. I wouldn't find out until we got on the bus and the escort mentioned where we were going. So I got on the bus and just as we were pulling away from the parking spot, Monica the escort said "we will go to our other two pick up spots and then we are off to Yorkdale Mall and then on to see the Jersey Boys!!!! Oh my gosh - every time I see the commercial for Jersey Boys on tv, I say, I wanna see that! So we picked up the rest of our people and then we were off to Toronto. I have never been to Yorkdale Mall, although I have driven by it numerous times and have always said...oh I would like to go in there and eat at the Rainforest Cafe. Well guess what....that is where Mum planned on taking me for lunch! What a cool place it is. There is a snake all coiled around a branch on the outside and his head and tail move, there is a crocodile in a swamp just outside the door that opens his mouth and snaps, there are elephants that trumpet every 15 minutes, there are gorillas that stand up and pound their chests, there was a thunder and lightning storm and this humongous aquarium that held cool looking fish. One fish was so big we were not sure if it was real or not! So we had a yummy lunch and then got back on the bus to head to the theatre. We had very good seats. The music was awesome and all of the actors and actresses were awesome. The fellas that played the main characters had incredible voices. It's hard to believe they would not lose their voice by the end of the production. I would recommend it to anyone. There is a bit of profanity in the show, but nothing more than you would see after 9 o'clock on the television. I had an awesome time with my Mum. Then I had a sleep over and went to visit my Granny in the nursing home. She is doing so well I am so happy about that. She looks awesome. We just found out they are going to be upgrading the nursing home that she stays at....we are not 100% sure what that all will entail. It's exciting that they will be getting upgrades, I'm just curious how they will handle it all with the residents that are there. If it's an addition, then I would assume they would build the new part and then move the residents in....but if it is a are they going to work around the residents?? I guess time will tell. I am, however, looking forward to seeing how they improve it. Anyhow, enough blabbing for now....I have much to do! Chow for now, Jacqui

That is the BEST restaurant, isn't it! Jenn and I went there when she was in college. The Pickle Barrel was another cool place to eat.
Glad you enjoyed your concert!
