Buffalo Baby!

I'm sure you can figure out why you are seeing this first picture. Mmmmm!!!!!

Please forgive me as this is a long post with lots of pictures but I just had to journal our weekend events in Buffalo.

We stopped along the way at out favorite winery for a stretch. It is a really beautiful place.

We ended up having a quick lunch there as well.

Some fun with bubbles. Oh my look at those white chicken legs!

I had to show this cute stream which is by a japanese garden. The grounds at this winery are beautifully landscaped.

Collecting leaves!

A boy's gotta climb!

We finally made it to Buffalo and here are all the kiddos from 4,3,2,1! It was a busy weekend!

More pictures of the crew.

Much of the artwork in the house has been painted by my friend's Mom. I was blown away by this portrait she did when my friend was 16!

On Sunday we went to Genessee village. It was an hour drive from Buffalo. It was a neat working historic village with many interactive experiences.

It was fun to see the old mercantile. I admired the old kitchenware. My son was really hungry and kept asking me to buy a snack at the store! Hah, I don't think they have goldfish here honey!

I was looking at the fabrics and sewing notions and imagining sewing my own clothes. I don't know if I would have been able to do that!

This garden was beautiful!

Lions and Tigers and Longhorns. Oh my!

We had a lovely picnic lunch near this grassy pavillion. The kids had a good time running around.

Picking flowers!

An unexpected summer storm left us on the porch waiting the rain out. Tasting the raindrops!

Monkey see, monkey do!

Going home we had a really long drive because traffic was took double the time. Aside from that we had a great time. I'm so glad we could see our dear friends. We have experienced a season of newlyweds to newborns and I hope and pray that our friendship lasts a lifetime whether near or far. We love you guys! Hope we can visit you soon in your new home in Chicago.
