Today at Rideau Hall, the governor general had a lot of stands set up where you could taste a lot of delicious food. From honey samples to apple cider, we tasted a lot of delicious snacks and cakes. My favourite ones were the apple cake with butterscotch jam and the St-Albert’s cheese curds with cinnamon.
They also had a band playing and you could also tour the building, but since we already did it before we didn’t.

Since my father’s English ain’t that great (psst don’t tell him I said that 😛 ) I thought it was BARK day, but apparently not. So when I got there I was super surprised. We got to see plants and bugs, but not just those that are icky, we saw even ickier ones. We saw moss, and also bacteria that grow on wheat and barley, and similar plants like those.

At the Capital Chinese School Auditorium, they gave out awards for those who did well aka meee! I got 90.0 exactly as my score. So I won a trophy with my chinese name engraved on it and I also got a 100 dollar prize! With it, I’m most likely going to buy some gum, even if I have braces, some candy, and maybe some delicious Starbucks.
The event was from 2:00 to 4:00, but after 4:00 in the cafeteria there are refreshments like cake and snacks.

This time we were playing for gold or silver. The team we were playing though, had no girls and most of them looked older than 13 (the age limit to play in the intermediate team) so it is pretty obvious that we would lose. We lost 10+ to 0 but we had some very fancy plays like the time Ella, a girl on our team caught a fly ball and she was playing left field!
So yes we did lose and we got silver, but Kyle, the umpire and the organizer of the baseball league told us that he would have the rules of atleast two girls on the team and have to be in the age limit for all the levels, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of the baseball league. After the game we had cake with whipped cream and berries on top, and we also got gatorade. I got the fruit punch flavour. When we got back, there was also food in the kitchen. It looked like a slice of pancake and it had strawberries and whipped cream on top too, similar to the cake.
As a reward for playing baseball, they also gave us tickets to see the Ottawa Champions play baseball!
