Toronto Visit 2015

I am so sorry. I have fallen behind on my blog posts.  Life has been busy...
 
Here are the last of our pictures from our vacation out east.  We had so much fun the entire trip.  These last batch of pics are from our time in Toronto.  Enjoy.
 
One morning we got up and went downtown to check out the Hockey Hall of Fame.  We are a family of Hockey fans so this was an awesome experience!
 
At the front doors of Hockey Heaven
Gallitown = Hockey Family

My favorite player growing up was Mario Lemieux. This display is dedicated to him.
Is that Ken Dryden?

The old Montreal dressing room was very cool.

Look at that stance! Perfect!
I proved why Semenko was a fighter and not a goalie! haha
I had a few of these NHL toys growing up
I have this Gretzky Plush on my couch at home!
Big Shot from Zach on Price
We found the Stanley Cup.

Very cool

These two love being goalies
After the HHOF we went out for a fun lunch at the Marché.
That afternoon Zach got to relax and watch some soccer with his Great Grandad Kelly
We went out for dinner at our favorite spot in Toronto, The Mandarin!  I ate so much it was ridiculous! 
They even had Cotton Candy!
 
The next day we got up and went to Grandad`s golf club Spring Lakes for a round.
 
A selfie out on the course
Chrissy taking a big swing
No pressure when your Husband, Dad and Grandad are all watching.  Chrissy did so well and hit the ball awesome.  What a fantastic day!

Later that day I went down to the car to get something and on my way back look who was watching...
Great Granny made Bri's favorite desert.  Those two look guilty...
Look Out!
Zach wants to help me with the Trifle Granny made me! Thanks Granny!
Nothing like a green popsicle!
 
The next night we went out to the Blue Jays game.  We had great seats and watched the Blue Jays win 8-4!

The next day we did something that I don't think very many people ever do.  We played a round of golf with 4 generations. Zach, myself, Grandpa and Great Grandad.
 
I think this is a very neat picture. Zach signed his ball.
Got my tee. Got my ball. Ready to go.
We were a little early...Kelly time...

Swing. Hit. Run to ball. Repeat.
By the end of the round he was able to hit that 7 iron about 80 years!

Don't bend that elbow Bri!!! haha
Wrong way Zach! haha

I love this picture too! Lining up his put.
That's my boy. Pull those clubs!!!
What a great picture.  Great Grandad watching his Great grandson hit the ball.  (Nice swing too Zachy!!!)

The next day it was time to go home.  We didn't fly out until the afternoon so we decided to go to a park to play.
 
Zach brought his new Blue Jays bat and ball
