|Us at Second City|
I left work early to surprise them, but that didn't turn out the way I had expected. Instead, I picked up some groceries and made dinner for everyone. We ate together and spent a good while trying to decide what to do for the night. We finally decided to go to Second City, which was probably the best decision ever.

The show was, in short, hilarious (as always). The jabs at Rob Ford, Canada Post and the "scandals in our neighborhood" skit were all perfect. If you live in Toronto, go see it. Now.
we Andrew drove us to Niagara Falls (it's about an hour and a half from Toronto).
|It was cold.|
As much as I love Niagara Falls, the truth is, it's just a big tourist trap. After checking out the falls, we agreed to only do one attraction while we were there. Since I love haunted houses and Vic hadn't been through many, I suggested we do Nightmares Fear Factory, which is by far the scariest haunted house I've been through.
After a bad experience with the person that worked there, we entered the haunted house. From the moment we entered, we couldn't stop laughing. Chris was insistent that he didn't like this, "Guys, you think I'm joking, but I'm not. I really don't like this." I half expected him to yell the safe word which would have forced the actors to escort us out, but he didn't.
Instead, we made it through the whole house. Like champs. Obviously.
When we were done, I was starving. We drove back to Toronto, stopping at a Mucho Burrito along the way. We then went to their friend's house (who, for the record, lives above a massage parlor, which was all kinds of confusing at first. But, their friends place was really nice!) who made some really yummy cupcakes. Then we called it a night!
After breakfast, which consisted of pancakes with Trix cereal thrown in (it's gross), we played a really intense game of Jenga (Andrew lost. Twice).
We then met up with another one of their friends and went to the ice festival that was happening downtown.

It was really, really cold out so we didn't last very long there. After taking forever to figure out where to go eat, we finally decided on a really cool looking Mexican restaurant in the Distillery District.
Although the food tasted really good, we were still pretty hungry after eating.
Hunger aside, it was time for Andrew to take Chris and Vic up for a flight!
We flew around the CN Tower a few times and saw some pretty amazing views.
|Vic, Chris and me!|
When we landed, we all took lots of pictures together with Andrew's plane.

But, it was really, really cold out. So, we ate some Chipotle and called it a night.
I'm so glad that Andrew and I got to spend the weekend with Chris and Vic. I can't wait until we get to spend another one with them!
