Wine Club - Seneca Lake

Pete and I have been to Seneca Lake numerous times, but not with the members of our Wine Club. A big thanks to Mary (& Greg) for organizing the fun limo-bus ride from Buffalo to the wineries. We had a lot of fun!

Tom's Villainous Birthday Party

We were invited over to Tom & Alicia's home in Kissing Bridge for Tom's Villainous Birthday Party - we all had to dress up as villains. Finding a female villain was no easy task - I made do with whatever I could find hiding in my closet and a $2.99 cat mask. Peter did really well - he made a Wario costume and I helped with the mustache :) Our favorite villain of the night had to be Mary who came in the comfiest pajamas and robe. Armed with a box of kleenex and a pig snout, she was the infamous Swine Flu!

Mom's Airport Send-off

After being in North America for almost 3 months and 2 weeks, it was time for Mom to head back home. She traveled a lot on this trip visiting our friends up in Canada on numerous occasions, to Vegas to see Dad and almost two weeks in Indianapolis at Sharon's. Here are pictures from her send-off...

Mary Anne & Dan's Post Wedding Party

Also falling on our one year NY wedding anniversary was a family party organized by Julie for Mare & Danny. A reunion of sorts as well as a celebration of their marriage for family and friends who could not make it to their wedding in Florida earlier this year. Julie made a beautiful cake for Mare - it still looked amazing even though it tilted a bit on its way to the party. Grandma was there with us, she was not in the best of health at that time but she was so happy she could join in the fun. Get well soon Grandma G! Here are pictures...
