City life, family time and some supplies for tomorrow

Where are we today ?
 clic a pic to enlarge it
        After a fun afternoon and evening with my cousin and her husband, crawled into our bed and enjoyed a real good nights sleep.
         Up early as usual enjoyed some coffee and computing,  I took a nice walkabout the neighborhood and found a few green spaces to explore here in the city, got my first mile in. Now this is more like it.  Then inside to chat over morning coffees with them.
love the green spaces and walkways here in the city
some nice trails
lotsa homes all around here
back to cousin's place where our coach is parked
      Then I took a short drive around check out Canadian Tire, The Super store for a few things then the T&T Asian grocery store to check out all the neat products they have in the very huge store and almost right across the street from here. So many interesting products but I did not have quite enough time, will go back and pick up a few things, probably tomorrow morning.
         After lunch to pick up daughter #1 and she took up to the Costco in New Market, to pick up a few things for the BBQ we are having here on Saturday. Back to her place and we hung out here. visit with her and the 3 grands, 2 teen age boys and #1 granddaughter. Plus their dog Fergie, a friendly Golden Doodle, thinks she is a lap dog and loves Suzie like most dogs do.

she needs a rub from Suzie

        Daughter #1 had invited us for dinner today, she put a mess of ribs in to oven too roast for a while to feed 4 adults 2 growing teenage boys and a growing red haired daughter, We will glaze them on the BBQ soon with some Bourbon BBQ sauce we found at Costco
a spare rib feast
a very tasty BBQ sauce
the girls chatting and Fergie keeping and eye on them
    Soon time to fire up their Weber to glaze the ribs on their grill mat with this tasty sauce.
     While this was going we checkout the yard and Fergie running circles around us.
they do have a nice yard here
soon the ribs were done to perfection
so tasty and tender
our 10 year old granddaughter #1,
is supper ready yet Grandad?
     To go with the ribs and coleslaw she had made some homemade baked beans in here Insta pot then slow cooked to finish, oh so tasty.
A very tasty meal ribs, beans and slaw
That be us tonight, SIL took the picture with me in it
      What a fun day we had with family and got groceries done for tomorrow, with another birthday party for me with my family, heck why not celebrate some more. Not every year I turn 70. I figure being lucky enough to do this I can celebrate.
       So we headed back to our coach at Marie and Franks for the night  just before 9 pm time to call it a night very soon. After all this time driving around in the city today sure makes us appreciate our country living style.
       Thanks for joining us today, hope y'all had a great day as well.
