A weekend away!

In celebration of our upcoming 15th anniversary, Jeanne and I got to spend the weekend away up in the Finger Lakes, thanks to my parents, who agreed to take our three kids for the weekend. We stayed in Corning, NY, which we found had a very pleasant historic downtown area with nice restaurants which we dined at both Friday and Saturday evenings. On Saturday, we took a hike through Watkins Glen State Park in the morning,

had lunch on the shore of Lake Seneca,

and then spent the afternoon visiting several wineries and tasting many different types of wines. Here's what you get when you ask someone to take your picture right after a wine tasting:

and here's what you get when you give them a second chance:

As you can see from the pictures, the scenery is absolutely incredible! On Sunday, we visited the Corning Museum of Glass, where Jeanne took part in doing some glass blowing to make a Christmas Ornament for our Christmas tree. Here she is in action:

It was a great weekend! Thanks, Mom and Dad!
