Staycation 2010

On Monday, we took the kids to my parents' house in PA to stay for the week. 
(it has been a ritual for a few years now)

The kids have been so excited!  Ian & Lily started packing their toys earlier in the week.  It was too cute.  Lily was counting down sleeps.  She was super excited to have a long slumber party at Nana's house.  Ian woke up early on Monday and got dressed so he was ready to go.  Once dressed he ended up waking up the whole house, he was so excited about leaving.

After dropping them off we took our time coming home.  We went to 3 of our favorite places outside of Pittsburgh, Don Pablos for linner (lunch/dinner), IKEA & Half Price Books.  I am wishing we had these things in Buffalo.  

On Tuesday, we went wine tasting.  We had a wonderful time.  Our favorite wineries were Schulze Winery & Niagara Landing.  Their wines are so tasty!! 

While we were out we went to Olcott (like we did last year) and I got to take more photos of flowers.  I love taking photos of flowers.


We also took photos of each other.
Yesterday, most of the day we vegged out at home doing nothing but watching movies we rented.  We did go out to lunch.  Not sure what we are going to do today.  Tomorrow we are going back to my parents' house.  I want to go visit my grandparents before we come home on Sunday.  (My grandmother had surgery about a month ago)

Always was fun to send the kids off somewhere where you knew they were safe and well taken care of so we could get some much needed grown up time! Great pics, especially of you and your hubby. YOu werent too far from me when you were at Olcott. I think one of these days we should meet up for lunch!
ttly!
