Anniversary Weekend

This weekend my husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary.  As an anniversary gift, he took me (without the children) to Niagara on the Lake for the weekend.  We stayed at White Oaks resort, a lovely resort and spa that has fantastic amenities and beautiful grounds with a chef's garden.

Although we tried not to fit too much into our weekend, we still managed to check out many of the local attractions.  We had lunch in an Irish Tea Room that specializes in gluten free offerings.  This restaurant is worth a visit, so a full review will be posted this week.

Later, we toured a local winery, Château des Charmes, and took part in a wine tasting.

We had dinner at La Cachette,  the restaurant at Strewn Winery, on their outside patio, watching the fireflies twinkle. 



The next morning we were treated to breakfast in White Oak's award winning restaurant, and then we took a drive along the Niagara Parkway, checking out fruit stands, wineries, and the fantastic view of the river.

This weekend was a fantastic way to reconnect and celebrate seven years of marriage.  The weather was gorgeous, and the scenery was even more beautiful.  I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful anniversary gift!

I realize that the menu plan did not get posted, so I'll do that today.  I'll also be reviewing some of the places we checked out, so look for those posts to go up this week.  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Blogging schedule is back to normal this week!
