Boxing Day

It finally happened. After years of refusing to go out on Boxing Day, we succumbed to our kids' pressure and went to the mall. It was a nut house, as I was expecting, and we even weren't at the busiest mall in town (we went to Conestoga Mall instead of Fairview Park).

On our way there, we were amazed at the spectacle of the trees. They all had turned into white, even though it had barely snowed the night before. Gaby took a few pictures from the car (there are more pictures in a previous post by Guillermo).

Some of the pictures taken by Gaby

The parking lot was absolutely full, but that is never a problem when I'm driving, as I normally manage to find the best parking spot possible (as seen in a previous post). And yesterday wasn't an exception, as you can see. Gaby hates the fact that I'm so lucky; had she been the one driving, we would have ended parking closer to our home than to the mall...

A picture of my mini-van from the door, and then a picture from the driver's seat.
I like to gloat, what can I say...

We bought what we had to buy, exchanged the gifts that needed to be exchanged (our fondue dish was broken!) and left as soon as we could. The kids got to buy a video game and got a 50% discount, so everybody was happy...

I still would have been happier if we had waited for another week before going there, though... :-)

Tenía que suceder. Después de años de negarme a salir en Boxing Day, cedimos ante la presión de los chicos y fuimos al mall. Era un loquero, como era de esperarse, y eso que ni siquiera estábamos en el mall de más movimiento (fuimos a Conestoga Mall en lugar de Fairview Park).

Camino a allí, nos sorprendimos con el espectáculo de los árboles. Tenían sus hojas todas blancas, a pesar de que no había nevado la noche anterior. Gaby tomó algunas fotos desde el auto (y hay más en un post anterior de Guillermo).

El estacionamento estaba absolutamente lleno, pero eso no es problema cuando yo manejo, porque siempre me las arreglo para conseguir el mejor lugar posible (como contaba en un post anterior). Y ayer no fue la excepción, como pueden ver. Gaby odia que yo tenga tanta suerte; si ella hubiese estado manejando, habríamos terminado estacionando más cerca de casa que del mall...

Compramos lo que teníamos que comprar, cambiamos los regalos que había que cambiar (el plato de nuestra fondue había venido roto!) y nos fuimos lo más rápido posible. Los chicos consiguieron un video juego con un 50% de descuento, así que todos contentos...

Eso sí, yo habría estado más feliz si hubiésemos esperado una semanita más para ir allí... :-)
