At 11:00am, we will have a moment of silence to remember the sacrifices our veterans made for us and honour those that have supported Canada's war efforts.
For now, I shall recap my weekend!
I'll be honest, I can't remember what I did on Friday. Let's skip to Saturday.
On Saturday, we decided to be tourists. We hopped on a tour bus and went to Niagara Falls for the day. Niagara is about an hour and a half drive from Toronto. When you have a tour guide telling you lots of neat facts on the drive up, it makes the time fly!
After we arrived in Niagara, we went up the Skylon Tower to get a bird's eye view of the falls.
To say it was windy up there would be an understatement.
We still had about two hours left until we had to get back on the bus. I was starving, so we grabbed a bite to eat before exploring some more.
We also bought that hilarious souvenir photo, which you may have already seen on Instagram.
We hopped back on the bus and headed to Niagara-on-the-Lake where we explored their quaint downtown area. Niagara-on-the-Lake is gorgeous and the shops are really cute. They even had a "Just Christmas" store! Since we didn't get to spend much time there, I really want to go back!
After exploring downtown, we headed to a winery for a wine tasting. As someone who has been to a couple wine tastings in the past, I was really disappointed by this one.
I still bought a bottle of wine though, simply because it had Dan Ackroyd's name on it.
After the tour, we headed back to Toronto. It was such a great day trip!
Sunday was ridiculously windy. Like, ridiculous. Absolutely too windy to do anything. Although, I did enjoy the view of a rainbow peaking out, despite the wind.
I also made a warm cheesy pasta bake because comfort food is essential on cold days!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
