Whew! We’ve finally caught up with the weekly renovations posts. We’ve had an amazing first week in our new (to us) house. Our weekend with Lee’s family was great, we had lots of fun and luckily they didn’t mind the not-quite-but-almost completed state our house.
On the Friday of their arrival, we hit up Real Sports Bar downtown Ottawa to watch the basket-ball game, eat and enjoy a few drinks.
The next day, we walked around downtown Ottawa before heading to the finish line to cheer on Lee’s cousin, Everad who ran a 5K in the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend almost a year after undergoing a life saving heart transplant surgery. He worked really hard to be able to run a 5K this soon after receiving his new heart and raised money along the way for the Heart and Stoke foundation. Supporting Everad was the main reason her family selected this particular weekend to come visit us.
On Sunday, we took them shopping in the Byward Market before they headed back to Toronto mid-afternoon.
