We drank wine, we sang songs, we danced and we ate jelly beans.....

...and now we are back....


The more the wine flowed, the more we laughed
The more the wine flowed, the more we sang
The more the wine flowed, the more we danced
The more the wine flowed, the more divine our gourmet jelly beans became!

Yes, in the small space of just a few days, we squeezed in quite a bit of traveling and imbiding on the wine trail of Niagara Ontario---we visited incredible wineries, we drank lovely wines, we gained valuable wine drinking knowledge and we experienced beautiful scenery. And, in between--we shared a special family holiday--filled with fun, a bit of chocolate and some truly fabulous food.

Scenes from our weekend.....
Toni and I getting our chai latte and energy shot fix in Niagara Falls.....


Here's our family of four posing for a picture in the vineyards at one of the wineries....

The girls in the vineyard.....my sisters, my niece, Toni and I


Carmen and I doing some wine shopping.....


Part of the gang at one of the wineries....


During a peaceful break in the sibling action....

Vince putting to use some of his newly aquired wine tasting skills while Adam puts to use his wine drinking skills....


Celebrating my sister Denise's (pictured here) 49th birthday at a fun little Irish pub in a quaint resort town (can't recall the name right now!) in Ontario with our favorite Irish guy....our dad...


And, oh yes, we did see the falls....on a very cold night!



It was an Easter weekend to remember....for a very long time.
Or, at least until the cases of wine we smuggled over the border run out....


I hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend too!!
