The month of April was a busy one! Not only did I finish training and run the marathon, I had a work trip to Toronto (where I saw a Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre) and celebrated Nolan’s birthday!

Nolan’s Birthday Weekend

You know I love birthdays, so having Nolan’s mom and stepdad Jeff in town for his birthday was awesome! They came into town later Thursday night, they explored Jungle Jim’s on Friday, while I got my short run in. Then we went to Nolan’s favorite fried chicken restaurant The Eagle, in the OTR. We’ve been there several times and it never disappoints. We stayed in the OTR and walked to several other local spots- photo above is outside Japps.

On Saturday we hung around the house because Nolan made his smoked ribs and beans. Meanwhile Jeff installed a new toilet in the main bathroom. Remember the list? On Sunday morning I snuck in 4 miles at the gym and then we headed to Terry’s Turf Club. I ordered the burger with sharp cheddar, bacon, avocado, lettuce, onions, tomato, lettuce and pickles (pictured above). Talk about a monster! We were all in a meat coma after, but managed to wake up for a round of Yahtzee and Pictionary. It was a such a fun food-packed weekend!

Waterproofing the CrawlSpace

We had the crawlspace waterproofed in April as well. It was just in time for a weekend forecast of rain, rain and more rain. But then, the sump pump alarm went off in the middle of the night. While I was on the phone Nolan was able to spot the problem; it was a loose connection. We were on edge the rest of the night, wondering if it was going to work. The next day we saw water was in the middle of the crawlspace. We called the company and they’re scheduled to come add more drain tile later this month. We joke that next time we move we’re renting a condo in the middle of the dessert.
