Weekend stuff

Saturday was partly spent going to Upper Canada Village to check out if it was a good place to have the wedding.
Last Christmas we both attended the light festival, and during that time we popped into the little church and we both liked it.
So we went back.
We didn’t get a good vibe this time. All we wanted to do was have a quick tour around to look at a couple of places.
They didn’t seem very accommodating to people doing their own wedding plan tour, and expected you to get with their coordinator(which I’m sure would cost).
I suppose that’s their prerogative, but it rubbed us the wrong way.
That, and it’s in the middle of no-where and a long drive away.
The other place we went to, Cumberland Heritage Museam, seemed to be bending over backwards to help us. They even let us tour the area for free.
The rates were about the same, but I think the overall location was just better.
The only trick is that it would be an outside reception, or just a covered one(but not indoors) so that’s a gamble.

Then we went out on a date.
I wanted to take her to this Drive-In Restaurant, but somehow got the city wrong.
No, not just the address, the entire city!
I had popped the address into gmaps, and it led me totally astray.
160 Chesterville Queen, Chesterville, ON K0C1H0 will get you this, and the resturant is actually closer to here.
Not helpful 🙂
Anyway, we went somewhere else for dinner.
Then ice cream, and a walk down the river.
Great night overall 🙂

Sunday was mostly shopping, trying to see my Gran(she was alseep) and a little sleep ourselves.

Tara and I have gotten into playing Guitar Hero at night, a few songs here and there.
It’s fun stuff 🙂

Anyway, guess I should go work or something.

    I like Upper Canada Village. I went there a lot as a kid (when my great-grandmother was alive and living in Morrisburg). Shame they’re not more accommodating.

    The same gmaps that had us driving down 20 KM of dirt roads in back-ass New Brunswick on the way back from a friend’s wedding.

    Or the one that told us to stay on AND get off the highway 🙂

    Yea, it seemed as though you had one channel and one channel only to do wedding stuff. Walking around on your own without someone showing you everything apparently wasn’t that one channel.
    Irritating, but whatever.
    In the long run, the rules for having a wedding there just made the whole thing a non-event for us.
