What a summer! OH MY GOODNESS! Each and every year, I think, how can we do anything more, fit more fun in? how could it be topped? well each year, we find a way of doing it. My body is exhausted, I know I have gained a few summer fun pounds, but it was most definitely worth it and I know I can fix the damage once the kids are back to school and we get back into a normal routine.
For now, I need to share some fun pictures of FOOD! and FUN!
a HOT day with great friends, then BBQ afterwards...such a warm summer! The perfect way to enjoy it? See above! Like our coffee table? It is granite you know! ha!
Off to Niagara- the crazy room we got! It was HUGE and screamed HONEYMOON!
that's just the tub! The shower? Could fit about 10 people in there! Crazy!
This came to our door each morning! Nice!
Lots of great wineries! We filled up the trunk to help stock the cellar!
the back side of my favourite winery due to the service, building and RESTAURANT! Peller Estates.
