grad celebrations and a little blue box...

as i mentioned in my last post, friday night i went out with my parents and dylan to celebrate my grad. finding a nice restaurant was actually pretty hard, but i ended up going with the Ancaster Old Mill, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. it was so beautiful. lots of photos...
the fam-jam
stairs down to the restaurant
 hey look at us, we're cute ;)
i want to have more reasons to celebrate, so we can eat here more often ;)



just waiting for our table.
so, who do i look like?
the boys
lookin' out at the beautiful waterfall while we eat. so nice.
complimentary fish something (dylan ate 2 pre picture, and no one else touched it, we're not big on fish), my dad and i both had the chicken, mom's pasta, and dylan's fish.
 my mom had the tiffany bag in another gift bag. sneaky sneaky.
surprised and excited! what could it be??
 love! fits my tiny wrists perfect too :)


finally ready for dessert. well my mom and dylan anyways. left: chocolate donuts with banana cream sauce and walnuts. right: puckery lemon tart.i obviously tried them both-delish.
one more on the way out. not sure why we're leaning...

overall, it was a great night. we were there for just over 2 1/2 hours. looking out at the waterfall was awesome, and so relaxing. they also had a guy playing the piano and singing quietly. all good choices in songs too, i might add. it was nice to sit and relax a bit between dinner and getting dessert and coffee too. and getting gifts lol.  my parents are too good to me. 
(ps, i pretty much want my wedding here now. there are a lot of room options and all have great views. i would pick this over a hall wedding any day. no offense.)
