saturday & sunday

After a lovely sleep in our soft cushy king size bed... where we were NOT woken up by children. We had decided a couple hours in the world class gym at the resort would be a good place to start after our indulgent day. It is the biggest gym I have ever seen and a monthly membership costs you $150!!
We ran in the beautiful cardio space. I lifted some weights and did Abs in another space and then Morgan & Dave played raquetball or squash.. well something with rackets.
We enjoyed a light liquid breakfast in the form of healthy shakes and then prepped for our SPA appointments. Yep you heard it... our package was for room, dinner credit and a spa credit. The guys were booked for massages and Martha and I each had a 85 minute facial. INCREDIBLE.

This was a bad ipod picture but you get the idea.

We were taken to the change rooms of the beautiful spa and given fluffy robes and slippers. We then met the guys in the lounge where we sipped peppermint tea, cucumber water and munched on fresh apples. It was so lovely.
My facial was out of this world. I have never experienced anything like it.
After our 2 hours at the spa we got ready and hit the road to check out Niagra Falls. Tourist spot for sure but figured since we were so close we may as well go.

My favorite is the frizzy hair... everyone had it. Awesome.

We had a beer on a patio and this was our view.
After a short trip there we headed back to our hotel for our stuff and we decided to stay and eat at the less upscale (but still amazing) Play Urban Restaurant. Following the trend from the night before the food was AWESOME.

As was the company....

We headed back to Morgan & Martha's... and crashed.
Sunday was super mellow. They created a feast for breakfast.. so delicious. 

After we got ready Martha and I headed to Marshalls!! It was awesome. 
The boys did boy things.. drove Morgan's fast car. Saw the Amish people out and about on a Sunday afternoon drive.

We headed to the mall later on. And then home for another fantastic dinner. It was a great relaxing way to end an amazing weekend. We are so blessed to have these guys as friends. It's hard to live so far away but so thankful we can just pick up and have it be so comfortable. Thanks for a great weekend away Morgan & Martha!!
