Yesterday, the babe and I decided to head to Kitchener City Hall to visit daddy for lunch. So, we hopped on the bus and set off for adventure. Right away we were greeted by it, as there ended up being three strollers on board by the end of our trip. It was quite something, I have never seen such a busy bus. The babe loved talking and smiling to all the people who got on. The only hitch came at the end, when we reached the Charles Street terminal. All three of the strollers were being taken off at the same stop, but for some reason the people boarding the bus did not seem to understand that they cannot get on until the strollers get off. We have to leave by the front doors, as it is impossible to push a stroller through the seats and out the back door, but no one seemed to understand that. It took me explaining it twice to the girls who boarded that they needed to get back off and let us through before they could get on, as there was no way to get by us. Some people. I thought it was common knowledge that you allow those disembarking the bus off before boarding, yet this has happened to me twice already this past summer (with no help from the driver directing those people trying to get on the bus to wait for me to get off). Oh well, we finally made it off and it was a beautiful day, so no harm no foul.
3. A few bites were overwhelmed by burnt chicken, needless to saw it was hard to enjoy those mouthfuls.
4. I really did not like the french fries, I had to ask my husband to finish them.
I love food trucks, and I always try my hardest to promote businesses within the Region; however, for the above reasons, and the price I thought I was paying for 'gourmet', I cannot see myself ever eating at the Schmuck Truck again. Even my husband said his burger was bland and not worth the money paid. Sorry, Schmuck Truck, just trying to be honest. I was very happy that we tried it, as I think everything is worth trying once to see if you like it or if it is as good as everyone else proclaims it to be; and it was a great excuse to come visit daddy for lunch.
The two other exhibitions "An Immovable Object" and "Remember When It Happened..." were also well put together; the babe wanted out of her stroller and to be in my arms so she could have a better look at the art herself. So proud of her, with her big smiles at everyone there and her interest in looking at art, even if it is for a mere millisecond. If you have a chance I highly recommend going to the KWAG to see these exhibits before they are gone. When the babe is old enough, I want to enrol her in their summer camp. It was going on when we were there and the kids looked like they were having a great time, eating outside and playing with the outdoor sculptures, then doing crafts inside. Fantastic!
There was a board there explaining Kitchener's assistance to New York City after the attack on the towers, and the firefighters' that went down to assist. It is quite amazing that during such horrific and tragic events, humanity will rally and show how utterly selfless and compassionate we, as humans, can be.
We met Daddy at the car and went home in great anticipation of that night. It was the second night in the Music & Movies in the Park series, Jack the Giant Slayer. I actually quite enjoyed the film, even with all the gore of people and animals being eaten by giants and the carnage of tons of deaths, and how surprisingly graphic it could be. I thought it was a good story, and loved the nod at the end to reality, haha. Also, loved that the babe fell asleep in my arms within the first half hour of the film (too cute), and I saw a shooting star (no need for wishes though, I have an amazing life already). Cannot wait for the next offering, I LOVE watching movies outdoors under the stars!
