There's no place like home...

I just spent a fabulous week in New york 
with my parents and my siblings.
Laughing, shopping and eating...
Eating, shopping and laughing...

We had to get passports to get into Canada
(which is a whole other nightmarish post in itself...)
Growing up,
we used to
 "cross the boarder"
with ease 
to go shopping in Toronto.
Not anymore...
It's a different world these days
We spent the day in the sweetest little town called
Niagra on the Lake.
Charming beyond words.
Then drove to Niagra Falls
which my mother says has gotten too
 "tourist-ie and carnie"
over the years.
Still pretty amazing...

although this picture IS NOT amazing...

My brother Drew 
was working at his shop 
so he didn't get to spend a lot of time 
with us girls.
He is one of the funniest guys I know
and has handled being sandwiched
 in between 4 sisters
 like a champ!

I mean GREAT times...
