Two weekend we had the pleasure of hosting a lovely house guest for the weekend, Aunt Molly. She arrive Thursday evening. Friday we made an impromptu trip to Niagara Falls. Aunt Mol had never been. It was was a beautiful as ever. The weather was perfect. And the crowds were non-existent. We rode on the boat. London wasn’t sure if she loved getting wet.
We found a nice little trucker stop to have lunch at on the way home. When Pete got home from work we had a nice little swim even thought it was a bit chilly. Friday night Aunt Molly & I ventured out to an acclaimed sushi restaurant that was mediocre at best. The company was great but needless to say we won’t be returning.
Saturday morning we checked out a neighborhood yard sale that was a bit of a bust. Aunt Molly of course found some stuff but I struck out. Saturday we got roti for lunch brought it to the beach. We saw black clouds rolling in and kept saying it looked like it was going to rain at any moment…well it did & we got absolutely drenched. Saturday Pete & I went to look at some houses & London got to hang with her great aunt. We all went out to dinner when we got home…but someone was incredibly naughty at dinner, won’t mention any names.
Sunday we went to visit Casa Loma. I had never heard of it before Aunt Molly mentioned it. Pete looked it up before we went & they were hosting Italian National Day there; he didn’t think it was open to the public. Well we figured we’d check it out. It was a good thing we did. We got in for free, toured the castle, enjoyed all the food & drinks they were serving. And then I ended up winning a lovely gift basket in one of the drawings. We had a surprisingly lovely day there.
Sunday night Aunt Molly whipped Pete & I in scrabble. And on that note we had to ship her home on Monday morning. We had a great a visit!!
