Toronto is privileged to host the 2015 Pan Am Games and Hannah and I are loving it! Yesterday we travelled into Toronto to see some of the Rhythmic Gymnastics competition. It was an early start for us during our week of vacation where we’ve quickly got into the routine of staying up late and sleeping in until 9am but we were happy to get up early for a day of new adventures!
Hannah asked if she could take a couple of furry friends along and chose the little clear bag above to carry them in. It ended up being perfect as we gathered treasures throughout the day and they all went into her little bag.
I found it quite funny on our way in how even though we cleaned off adjacent seats to us each time we stopped to pick up new passengers somehow Hannah and I ended up with 4 seats to ourselves. I’m guessing on a busy Friday commute into the city, regular passengers on their way to work weren’t feeling the love of sitting near a cute but busy 6yo!
When we arrived at our venue we were excited to find out that we’d received a free upgrade and had been moved to a more central section and had seats in the 3rd row! Hannah saying ‘thank you’ to the man from Ticketmaster who was giving us our new tickets.
The final event was really exciting and I only wish there had been more teams competing! It was team ribbon and it was stunning to watch and beautiful! The funny thing was that during the first team, each time the girls threw their ribbons into the air at the same time Hannah would call out, ‘Fireworks!!!’ She had myself and all those around us in stitches! This is the US team who ended up in 2nd place.
After we left the competition we found lots of other things to participate in but I’ll save that for another post.
GO CANADA GO!!!
