Teddy at Fall Home Show

This fall I was lucky to attend Toronto Fall Home Show 2012 and took Teddy with me. I was looking for some design and renovation ideas for our home. The show was on Saturday so after Teddy's 4Cats art class our next stop became Exhibition Place that hosted Fall Home Show. It was an interesting transition for Teddy from one creative spot to another.

To my opinion it was not quite kids event, but I wanted Teddy to explore and learn something new, see interesting styles, colors, communicate with other people and have a nice day. It is amazing how kids can find something exciting in simple things like splashing water in jacuzzi, rolling in a big chair or watching moving stands.

Teddy was gladly posing for the camera, standing on direction squares on the floor. Pink Panther was obvious  one of Teddy's friends there. Then my boy found  Sid's Ponds and Gardenscapes Inc display and spent much time near their nice pond playing with little frogs. 

Fashionable chairs and sofas were very beautiful, Teddy even tried to find what he liked the most. The doors display was quite attractive since there were so many of them. When Teddy opened one door he turned out to be in the same room which was strange experience but so much fun.

We had a chance to see TV gardening expert and author Frank Ferragine on the main stage.

So we walked around the whole show, saw many displays and booths. Overall I found the show was really interesting, it covered different areas of home improvement and renovations. Though we were not ready to start our home renovations right away it was nice to get the ideas, talk to the professionals, learn about new innovations and designs all in one place.

Do you like Ostriches?

Do you like ostriches? We do, considering that the biggest one is 250-350lbs and the tallest 7-9 feet bird in the world. 
This summer during our vacation we happened to be close to the Ostrich Farm and took advantage of this opportunity to see these flightless birds closely. One thing is to see one or two of them in the zoo and completely different story to see dozens of them and watch how they interact with each other within group. 
You can see different characters - good and bad, exactly like people. Ostrich can run 70 kilometers per hour. Although cheetah can run 120 km/h, but it can run only for few minutes and after that it is done. 

Ostrich enjoying some treats 
Ostrich from the other hand may maintain that speed for 15 minutes at a time. So if it will be a 15 km race between them, then ostrich would be a winner. 

Teddy was not as exited about ostrich as we were, although he tried to pet one. He was impressed with the ostrich feather and the size of ostrich egg, which he has some difficulties to carry – it weighs 3-4lbs. 

We tried ostrich burgers and an ostrich pie there. Ostrich meat is delicious or maybe we just were hungry? We bought ostrich egg and cooked a huge omelet at home. We invited all our family to taste it. Not bad. 

 We cracked egg gently and made nice ikebana vase out of it. Ostrich can live up to 70 years, quite comparable to human life span. Do you like ostriches now?
