Aidan broke his arm a few weeks ago; so we cancelled our trip to Iceland. Vacationing at the cottage instead.

Traditional Vietnamese Concert in Mississauga

We attended a local recital put on by the Vietnamese Community Centre of Mississauga. We listened to the "moon flute" (banjo type instrument), zither, and monochord. The last instrument has only one string, and various notes are generated by picking the string while changing its tension. The community centre provides lessons for traditional Vietnamese instruments.

TDH Picinic in Toronto

Since we missed the TDH picnic last year, we made a point of going this year.  It was nice that it was in Toronto, which meant a very short trip for us.  We noticed that many of the Ottawa and Kingston families were missing.... I guess too far for them.  It was nice to see Manon and a few familiar faces.  There were many new faces as well. We did miss the Kashinos and hope that Sharon will be doing better soon.
Here are a few snaps from the day...
