Pinball!

Today was fun. We met up with some new Canadian pals to try out The Pinball Cafe which has just opened in our 'hood. It has a strictly no alcohol/family friendly policy, favouring shakes and floats (spiders if you're Aussie) over beer. They even make great coffee, no mean feat in Canada!
Poppet had some lessons and then happily mucked about on the machines with her friend, surrounded by all the 'hipsters' hanging out down the back while we enjoyed a coffee. For a family focused cafe, it was funny to find that ours were the only kids in the place. But the owners (and other patrons) were welcoming and so happy to have a new generation to convert that we felt really comfortable. One of them even showed the kids some tricks with his yoyo. We'll definitely go back, it's a great place to hang out after school. Plus, the free jukebox is full to the brim with 80s tunes, we even heard some Icehouse today.
The day started out looking like this...

















And then the snow was gone, just like that...
