This past weekend Firda and I headed back to my parents place for Pumpkinfest, as I mentioned in the Friday post. Friday night we sped home to watch the Fireworks, which were actually pretty good.
Saturday was a bust. Sadly it rained all day, so we missed the parade. We did a bunch of running around though. Checked out the Brantford Value Village, visited our friends Lex, Juan-Jose and their 5 week old baby Xander, then visited our friends Chuck, Christine, Sam (2 years) and Will (5 months).
Sunday was another busy day. The rain had let up so we went into Waterford for the final day of Pumpkinfest. We checked out a book sale, went to a car show and checked out the spook house, which in Firda’s words “was more funny than scary” (I agree with her).
In the afternoon we went over to my Great Aunt Angela and Great Uncle Gus’s house to pick up our wedding gift from them, which brings us to the photo. The table was our wedding gift. My great uncle made it with his own two hands. He learnt the carpentry trade back in Belgium before the second world war. He is around 80 years old but he is still busy building things.
Firda and I love the table. What a great wedding present.
P.S. That’s Corner Gas on the TV in the background. Corner Gas is a Canadian half hour comedy, set in a small town in Saskatchewan. Doesn’t sound like it would be funny but it is.
