Kim made some cinnamon bun crepes which were very tasty, though we found them a little too sweet!
We watched some TV but then got ourselves ready petty quickly and went out for a walk.
We went to 49th Parallel, a previous favourite coffee stop for us, which is down by Kim’s old work building.
We went so Kim could get a doughnut and also their special hot chocolate they had! Each year, they have a hot chocolate festival here in which many cafés have a special unique hot chocolate flavour. Last year, we weren’t that impressed, but this time, Kim got a dark chocolate & orange flavour hot chocolate and it was excellent! It also came with two chocolate brigadeiros which were also incredible and worked perfectly with the hot chocolate.
We had a long walk and then came home. Curtis then watched hockey whilst Kim relaxed.
We ate leftovers from yesterday for dinner, and watched a bit of TV.
We took the bins down to the recycling as well as some items we needed to take down to storage.
We got some vaccuming and cleaning done and then we played some games and went back to watching TV.
We didn’t do all too much until this afternoon. We had a simple breakfast, did some laundry and then go ready for the day.
At 14:00, we left the house to go to Western Springs Stadium!
We drove to Curtis’ work, parked there and then walked 30-40 minutes to the stadium as there was no nearby parking.
We got to the stadium and got right into the cue! We had premium seats (the 2nd best!) So our cue wasn’t very long.
We milled around for a while in the park before the stadium opened (later than planned!).
We were then into Friday Jams Live! This is a mini festival (6 hours) of throwback R&B music from;
Naughty By Nature
Salt n’ Pepa
And finally, Usher & Lil Jon!
What an awesome time we had! This was 6 hours without a break from music and when there wasn’t an artist on stage, there was a DJ keeping up the awesome music!
Usher and Lil Jon at the end were fantastic and kept it going for a while, too, with a big mix of songs.
We left very happy and quite hungry! We walked back to the car and drove back home, making a stop at McDonald’s on the way.
We had a really great time, though our legs, feet and backs hurt after standing in one spot for so long…luckily we had an amazing spot to watch from. We’re very tired and confused why it was on a Sunday night, but it was still awesome!
