|Calimari a la Chinoise!|
As is traditional, the next day after arrival is devoted to Chinese dim sum, which the boys love. They especially love the calimari, with both Zachary and Jacob waging chopsticks war to see who can eat more and faster. Jacob also got to satisfy his shrimp fetish, as at least six plates featured them; he and I shared a sesame bubble tea afterwards too for the full Chinese dining overload.
Being bookworms, the other traditional stop after dim sum was to the libary to load up on books. The Burnaby Public Library is certainly a big jump up in size and holdings from Fonthill, Welland, and St. Catharines!

The boys also ended the day with a quick dinner and visit from their cousins Chas and Ben Huskilson, sharing a few cupcakes. They ended up exhausted at night between that and the past few days, sleeping in way late despite the time change. However, they woke up all eager to go back for more gymnastics training today, so you've got to admire that spunk and energy! That's the drive and passion that I love to see, and both Debbie and I are so proud of them for that. Indeed, they each already set new personal bests for circles on the pommel today, Zach going from 35 to 51 and Jacob from 25 to 34! Awesome!
