I have to say - i went here about 5 years ago when they did not own their own grapes - they do now and it is pretty great
I had booked business class again on my red eye to Geneva, via Atlanta on Delta. I had forgotten that domestic business did not automatically come with lounge privileges. I decided to purchase it for $25 to give it a whirl; it was not worth it. However, the flight itself totally was. I purposely booked another airplane with lay down seats, even though it took me to one of my least favorite airports (Atlanta) instead of my favorite airport (Detroit). That was worth it. I was able to get a solid three hours of sleep on the flight, immediately laying my bed down once we took off. So by the time I landed in Rochester, I felt refreshed.
I always love getting to the airport and seeing my parents greet me - it makes me so happy to see them and their smiling faces again, like all is right in the world. I've been doing this greeting for about 17 years now, ever since I went away to college, 1000 miles away. It's weird to think that half of my life has been so far from "home". Anyway, this time they brought my newest nephew, Olivier, who I had not
yet met. Gosh is he a cutie! He has blond hair and huge blue, blue eyes - looks just like my dad. We tease my sister's husband, Michel, because they know of no blue eyes in recent memory in his family!
Anyway, we stopped for lunch (not the Olive Garden for the first time ever) then headed home. Dad and I picked up Emry at 4:15 and brought him home. He seemed so happy to see me - "Hi Wexus!" He comes home and pushes the basement door open to make it crash against the back wall and if it doesn't (because my dad has hidden something behind it), he takes the items out from behind the door and crashes it open again. Too cute!
Mostly, it was just a week to spend with family - I got to spend some good time with my parents and sister's family. We were able to celebrate Easter together and have fun with Emry's 3rd birthday. Nothing too exciting. But I did get to visit the Mennonite store, Sauder's, in Seneca Falls so I could stock up on my favorite natural peanut butter and some other small items. Then we visited
the bank before taking some photos of the bridge that potentially inspired the movie It's a Wonderful Life - so beautiful. Emry enjoyed the easter egg hunt I made for him - he would get so excited to find the eggs. Too adorable! I put small natural fruit candies in there and some foreign coins and a couple of American dollars - he's rich! God that kid is ridiculously adorable.
Just an easy trip home to my beloved family! My mom is doing well, dad is the same fun self, sis and her hubby are raising two friggin cute boys and doing grown up stuff. I wish I could experience this forever, but the grass is always greener, right?
