Flat Stanley's Canadian Adventures - Post #4

One night this week, we had a One-Of-A-Kind Jewellery Party at our house by Response Jewellery.  All of the funds raised went towards Compassion Canada's Haiti Disaster Relief Fund.  At the end of the evening, we were able to raise a total of $800!!!  Flat Stanley was in on all the action...

First, Flat Stanley got to meet our cousins IJ and DJ whose mommy (our Aunt Ranee) brought them to the party with her.

Then, he checked out some of the necklaces, bracelets and earrings!!!

Flat Stanley decided that he would try on a necklace just for fun!

Here are more of the jewellery...

Over the course of Flat Stanley's visit, we also took him to the following places:

Pickering's City Hall where our mayor works.

Canadian Tire - no, they don't only sell tires.  It is more like a department store really!

Tim Horton's - the coffee and donut shop where every visitor to Canada should go!!!

The local post office or "bureau de poste" as it is called in French.  If you don't already know, Canada has two official languages, English and French.  In French, Flat Stanley is known as "Clément aplati".

Swiss Chalet - the best chicken and ribs restaurant in Canada!  This is the restaurant where people go for lunch after church on Sundays.  The restaurant has a nickname called "Christian Chicken".

Flat Stanley goes home tomorrow.  We have one more place to take him to tonight.  Our Aunt Ranee's birthday party --- so please stay tuned for one more blog post before we bring Clément aplati to the Bureau de Poste!!!
