What better way to enjoy a crawl than with your babies? Hamilton closes a portion of James Street every year so they can celebrate art, music, and other creative ventures. We walked the length of the street, danced past the bands playing on stage, browsed through the various street vendors, saw some art and even created some of our own.
The kids were well behaved and so I assume enjoyed the festival. When we reached the end of the street though William pointed out, "We haven't actually done anything that I want to do."
"What do you want to do?" I asked.
"I want to get ice cream."
So we back tracked and went to the ice cream truck. Both Will and Jadzia ordered popsicles and became a sticky blue mess. By this time it was almost five. We decided to meet some of my Staircase friends for dinner. I asked a police officer where the restaurant was and he said it was a five minute walk. It took us half an hour.
We enjoyed some tasty German food at the Black Forest Inn. The kids were on their best behaviour (minus some crawling under the table) despite a long long wait to be seated, then they dazzled everyone by eating large quantities of bread and spaetzle.
It was a good day.
