    I had been planning to take my buddy Nathan to a Seaplane fly-in yesterday but since the weather looked like it was not going to be favourable I decided to head into Toronto for some fun. I was heading for Old Fort York but Nathan would not stop talking about the CN Tower so we decided to head there instead. Especially once I got caught in the traffic for the CNE.

    Nathan seen in the Skypod. The tallest man-made observatory in the world at 147 stories.

    This was too cool. All of a sudden some low clouds started to blow in. NathanÂ’s brother and sister did not believe he was above the clouds until he showed them the photos.

    Nathan is like the Energizer Bunny, he just keeps “Going, and going, and going" It may of had something to do with the ice cream we had.

    I hope you enjoyed our day as much as we did.

    Cheers,

    Yes. I did enjoy your day with you. Thank you for inviting us over. So we could share something.

    Lovely photos, as always.
    But I no longer expect any less of you ;).

    Nathan is growing!
    He has visibly changed over the course of time, and you have sent pics of your outings with either him or his brother and sister over the time we two have been members, haven't you? He IS growing, indeed.

    And that pic taken through the "scary glass floor" gave me a very funny feeling in the stomach!
    But once I'll be over (and Chiller is convinced that day will come) I WANT to be brave and stand there, if only for a second, myself, too! Oh yeah!

    Corina, if you ever get to Toronto you will have to go up the CN Tower. Nathan sure is growing, I can't pick him up and throw hima round like I once did. Natalie and Nicholas are growing at the same rate and we are starting to have some pretty interesting conversations.

    (30 minutes from Toronto to St. Catharines??? Even I don't drive that fast!)

    Looks like you and Nathan had a wonderful day together. He's brave to stand on that 'glass floor'... I will do it but it makes me nervous at first. Numbers 9, 10 and 11 are my faves. Great captures.

    Thanks again. Anti, DVJ, Chiller and I have been talking about a TPF get together soon. It has almost been a year since our least meet out at Lyndeshore in Whitby. Maybe in September some time.

    Thanks for sharing these. He is definitely a bundle of kid-energy. ;) The city-scapes are my favorite; I never get tired of looking!
