~Wonderful Time~

Robert and I did manage to get away for our Anniversary. We stole away early Friday and dropped the kids off at my Parents house around 3pm. We arrived in Niagara Falls around supper time, took a little rest and then headed out to Dinner. We went to the Keg which is located on the 9th Floor of a hotel with windows overlooking the Falls. We got a table with a view of the falls and a view of the nightly fireworks that go off at 10pm. The evening was just perfect! Dinner was wonderful and we shared a desert by fireworks so to speak :) The picture is only of me but I promise Robert was my dinner companion!


We started our Saturday with room service...admittedly I have never used room service so I was pretty excited about having breakfast brought to our door at our specified time..lol. Oh and I almost forgot there was Valet parking at the Restaurant...which I have also never experienced before(I know I don't get out much do I?) Although our weekend was just about perfect in every way, we did run into a little 'glitch' so to speak when were greeted with this....

No big deal though, we had it pumped in within 15min by CAA and drove to a nearby tire shop where they plugged it. How fortunate were we that the tire shop was within walking distance to the outlet mall??? So we walked around there till our tire was fixed up. We headed back to pick up the kids, but only to come home and drop them off at Roberts Parents for another sleepover! The kids had a great time and went to Rock and Bowl with Grandma and Grandpa. Robert and I were treated with a Restaurant Gift card from his Parents so we went out for another solo dinner. What a wonderful and refreshing weekend! I made it quite clear to my staff that I was not to be bothered this weekend and guess what??? I WASNT!!! Now back to the workday grind tomorrow.

You anniversary trip sounds like fun!! Can't wait to go for ours in October.

I'd say having an outlet mall walking distance from the tire shop was more than luck...divine intervention!!!

Glad you had a great time!!
