My last weekend or thereabouts was spent up in Barrie with Steve’s family. We took a day trip down to Niagara On The Lake on Saturday to visit a few wineries (and enquire about weddings) and for a little horseback riding fun. Stopped on the way for some apple spice cake at The Pie Plate and bought some apple rhubarb pie back for Steve’s family and at the downtown strip for some lunch. Then off we went for an hour or so of riding, through wineries and the Niagara escarpment. Our horses (Steve’s was Brock and mine was Cobra – what an amazing name!) rode in a pair and we had a ball of a time (including some trotting action!).

After all that, we drove by the Niagara Falls (literally) and back to Barrie. On Sunday, I baked some lemon cupcakes with a lemon curd center and vanilla buttercream, topped off with some meringue kisses. So yummy.

Then we got to work on a pretty awesome project we’ve been talking about for a while now – I promise I will share the results with you soon! :)
