We spent Gracie's birthday last year at the Great Canadian Cheese Festival in Picton, Ontario. I felt badly because I thought that her birthday might stink a bit. Just days before her birthday, I had surgery reconstructive surgery on my nose. I had really wanted to cover the Great Canadian Cheese Festival for my blog, and so I promised Gracie that I would make it up to her. We would celebrate her birthday in grand style, it would just have to be later when I was not on pain medication. We arrived at the festival on the warm June day, my nose bandaged, and hopped up on pain killers. It turns out that Gracie had an amazing birthday, and asked if she could come back next year. Every time I looked over at the kids they had great big smiles on their faces.
If you missed out on my blog from last year, feel free to take a little peekie.
This year's festival will be June 1 and 2 at the Crystal Palace in Picton, Ontario. It will be even bigger and even better (to be honest, I'm not sure how that's possible). We had such an amazing time last year, and that was with me in pain. I am really excited to go this year, and be pain free. The kids are really excited too, they all want to bring a friend (as a parent, that's how you know that something is a success). We plan to go for the Sunday, which is "Family Day".
I highly recommend you throw your family in the car and take a road trip. There are so many different and wonderful cheeses to sample, and ultimately buy.
