Family Time in Toronto


Grandma, mom, Amy & Aunt Esther enjoy the celebration.

Over Memorial Day weekend I visited Toronto for the Bat Mitzvah of my cousin, Jenni. We had a fabulous time and lots of great eats.

Cool centerpieces.

My placemat - a real record!

Cousin Alex singing with her dad, David, in the band. They provided some great musical entertainment.

Julia and Amy - northern and southern cousins!

Desserts galore.

And some fruit, too.

Sunday brunch = omelet makers at our cousins' house!

Amy and Jenni, the Bat Mitzvah, in coordinating colors!

Mom and Amy at the Toronto beaches. Julia and Steven were nice enough to take us around town for a bit of a tour.

The Canadian National (CN) tower.

Sunday afternoon we stopped in at Go For Tea for a snack.

Pineapple/celery/lemon juice, lychee bubble tea and mango bubble tea.

Inside of the restaurant.

We also shared an order of condensed milk toast - sweet and tasty.

After a good nap we headed out to meet several of our relatives for dinner at Asian Legend Chinese restaurant. The place was packed and seating was a bit difficult but we managed to have a wonderful time and enjoy each other's company in spite of the challenges. I loved the wonton soup, the shrimp dumplings and the eggplant!

Veggie hot & sour soup.

Steamed shrimp dumplings.

Delicious wonton soup.

Hot and spicy squid.

Eggplant with Pork.

The next morning I found a delicious Chinese bakery near the hotel where I purchased some goodies for breakfast. Luckily, they accepted my US dollars!

Delicious custard bun and egg custard tart from a local Chinese bakery.

Jenni's cute dog! We had a great time in Toronto - can't wait to visit again next year!
