Last weekend, Reon and I went to Toronto. We went out there to visit our family/good friends, Jarrod and Amy. They actually live in Aurora which is about 20 minutes outside of Downtown Toronto in this BEAUTIFUL home full of love and charm. The area is remarkable and there house is on a great piece of land surrounded by beautiful nature. They have these HUGE windows on each wall that open a view of the property and another gorgeous house (or mansion if you will). The second we walked in we felt like it was home.

Saturday, we headed out to downtown TO (I have never been and as you may already know, I LOVE the city. So I was pumped to head down and take in the hustle bustle, interesting people, and stunning architecture. On our way we stopped at Cathedral City and admired this exceptional cathedral:

We even saw George W. Bush as the Pope!!! LOL

Next we headed down town and our first stop was the CN Tower (well at least AFTER a short stop at the Steam Whistle Brewery):

After a few beers, consumed by Jarrod and Amy only (we are not beer people), we made the short trek to the tower. And of course we had to take some photos:

The tower was actually quite interesting! I am not afraid of hieghts so I was able to completely take in the view and exprience the glass floor (that's right, I walked on it- actually we even laid down on it for some photo ops):

The rest of the day we spent touring the city streets. We spent a total of 8 hours walking the streets of Toronto. We met this one random guy who inspired us all with some of his views about life, spirituality, health, etc. It was a moment I will hold dear and will never forget.
We did stop at a few pubs on the way and just chilled out.

The rest of the weekend we spent sharing stories, memories and just casual chatter. (And some much needed cousin bonding time):

It was hard to leave because it felt so comforting to be around them. I can honestly say it is one of the best weekends we have ever had!
