Victoria Day Weekend


This past weekend Canada celebrated Victoria Day. It commemorates Queen Victoria's Birthday and is always held on the weekend closest to May 24th. According to Wikipedia the holiday is also meant to celebrate the current monarchs birthday so I suppose we were supposed to be celebrating Queen Elizabeth II also. My cousin came to visit from Toronto so I thought I would share a few photos. I hope she doesn't mind making an appearance on the blog.

Spinach Pizza. You can't tell I dropped it while taking it out of the oven, right?

A long weekend calls for Rose

Sour Cream Spiced Cupcakes. Dense but delicious


Cream Cheese Orange Icing

Small Town Living


My cousin Bimbola and I. Enjoying a day with no rain



Wine Touring


Did you know Wayne Gretzky had a winery? 99 Wayne Gretzky Estates. The wine isn't very good. Or so my cousin said. I was the DD




I hope everyone had a great weekend!
