Cambridge Ontario to Woodstock Ontario

Easter morning. We got up to the sounds of children exploring their haul from the Easter Bunny. And what a haul it was. There was even something for Grandma and Grandpa.

After we had gone through the Easter morning rituals, the Koolen family was off to Mike's parents place in Aylmer while we headed to Woodstock to Heather and Tom's. On the way, we saw some geese walking on a frozen pond. They didn't look happy. I stopped at the new Flying J and fueled up at $1.258, the best price in this area.

We arrived at Heather and Tom's just before 10:00 AM. We settled in and watched some TV, mostly Top Shots episodes, until 3:00 PM when we headed back towards Tom's parents place in Breslau for Easter dinner.

Zofia and Stan again set a traditional Polish table where three sons, their wives, their grandchildren and parents of the sons' wives all sat down. The meal was, as usual, spectacular. The  main course included pork medallions, turkey, beans, potatoes, vegetables and cranberries. There were several wines to complement the food. Then cakes were brought out along with coffee and liqueurs. Oddly, we then had salads that included quinoa, corn and mushrooms. The good food was matched by the company. All in all, it was an amazing dinner, although I ate too much.

After returning to Woodstock, Tom and I watched more Top Shots, talked about how the PS3 connection worked and then turned in.
