Little Canadian Delights

So we played Canadas Wonderland yesterday... It's a theme park similar to a six flags, except with security that the TSA would envy. Geez... They were hardcore!

I used to come to this park quite a bit when I was a kid. I also used to come see my favorite Christian bands play here, so it was kind of special to be playing on that stage with my own band now.

My mother and aunt were there with me, and we spent some time walking around the park. It was interesting to see all the rides that has been renamed since I left. They even renamed one in my honour! At least I'm assuiming it's in my honour.... I mean, I AM the Sledgehammer!

For lunch we went to this pizza joint called Pizza Pizza. Now, I know this photo is lame, and this place doesn't look that special... But it is! They have DIPPING sauces for their pizza..... and if you're an avid reader of the sidelines, then you know... I'm all about the sauces. My favorite in this case is the cheddar jalepeno. Delicious!

Of course, no trip to Canada is complete without a visit to Tim Hortons.... Or, in my case.... Three. Yes, I managed to squeeze in 3 trips to tim hortons in just over 24 hours.... Here is the final breakdown:

3 iced capps
1 boston cream donut
1 maple dip donut (how Canadian)
1 vanilla dip donut with sprinkles
1 cinnamon raisin bagel

I think I may have sinned by eating all that.

However, I did get new running shoes for my birthday (thanks honey!) so I'm going to try and run at least 3 miles a day for the next two weeks. We've got a little time off and I'm determined to put it to good use!

3 Tims visits in 24 hours? I didn't even know that was possible. Nice one. But I was at wonderland yesterday, and it was EPIC. But yeah they renamed all the rides because of some lame copyright thing or something. Did you go on Behemoth? Now THAT'S a good ride.

There is no sin in a sprinkle donut, Jon. (Gen. 6:21, esp. if you take it out of context!) PS - great cdn show!
