We Visit a Winery in New Brunswick

Frankie and Chance are sitting on the shelf at the Richibucto River Estate Winery. Bear cubs aren't wines! Frankie and Chance are acting silly.
Hi. I'm Charles the Bear Cub. You know me. I live on Sparkle Road with my buddy, Grandpa James. He's really old. He was the second Canadian to get off Noah's Ark, you know.

Oh. Wait! Chance lives with us, too. He's a newborn cubby someone left in a basket on our doorstep. He's a wee little thing. I look after Chance, too. He climbs way high on everything and then he can't get down. He makes little squawky noises when he's afraid. I have to help him. He's a handful!

 Oh. Wait! Frankie lives with us, too. He's our cousin, you know. Frankie is four. Frankie Facebooks with Queen Elizabeth. He got knighted. He's the Knight of Knewfoundland and the Lord of Labrador.

We're watching the grapes grow.

Today we're visiting a winery. I know what a winery is. It's a farm for grapes. When the grapes grow up  they become wine. There are all kinds of wines that comes from grapes. Grapes are yummy and that's one of the four food groups in Canada's Food Guide.

We can take a tour of the winery.
 The Hudson family lives on a BIG farm in New Brunswick. I know where New Brunswick is. It's the fourth province on the right. We go there in the truck. New Brunswick is pretty far from our house but we don't get lost 'cuz we just follow the map.

These wines win prizes 'cuz they taste so good.

Did you hear that? Grandpa James is hollering, "Where are my handsome bear cubs? Where are my Sons of Windsor? Where are my Princes of Ontario? That's me! Charles! That's Chance! We're handsome bear cubs. We're Sons of Windsor and Princes of Ontario! Grandpa James is hollering. Where's my Knight of Knewfoundland and my Lord of Labrador? That's Frankie! He's the Knight of Knewfoundland and the Lord of Labrador!

We gotta go find Grandpa James so we can get our ears tickled and our noses kissed. This is me, Charles the Bear Cub saying, "Be good citizens. Be kind to friends and neighbours. Then you can eat Smarties and drink root beer. Oh! Wait! Come over to our house and play with us! We can go visit the Hudson family and pick grapes and drink grape juice together! Okay! Over and out!"
