Easter weekend

This Easter weekend has been fabulous so far. We ate yummy hot cross buns yesterday (and still have some for today). Later on I went out for a friend's birthday dinner at the 360 restaurant at the CN Tower. It's a rotating restaurant that gives you a complete view of the city and lake every 72 minutes. The food was plentiful and delicious, as was the company.

The tables were a little crowded together but we had a booth so we were comfortable and didn't feel squished. I think they get a lot of tourists there and people celebrating special occasions because there was a lot of Happy Birthday songs and a lot of pictures. Our waiter even came by and asked if we had a camera with which he could take our picture for us.

I hadn't seen my friend in quite a while and I've missed her so it was great to catch up with her. I also got to see her sister for the first time in ages and catch up with her as well as to meet a new friend. I hope to come back to the city to see them again this summer and I hope if they're driving by me that they'll stop by.

Of course if it's Easter weekend, it must be time to file our taxes. We managed to get both of them done in about an hour and a half and we ended up with a small net positive balance. I'm getting a refund for the first time in a few years while Ian gets to pay.

Now that our tax chores are done, we can kick back and relax for the rest of the weekend. And eat. Easter is great for eating lots of yummy food.
