Wine Country

Three weeks since my last post...can't seem to get the hang of this blogging thing. We've been so busy. This happens to me every year. The last two weeks of school is a crazy time...performances, ceremonies, parties, gifts, swim team, etc. Throw into the mix that Jackson and Jordan also have their birthdays during that time period...gets really crazy. This year we also planned a trip to Sonoma for the first weekend after school got out so I've been busy trying to get ready for that. Now we're back from an awesome trip and I hope the lazy days of summer can settle in.

We had a great trip to Sonoma with two other couples (the Enochses and the Kimberlins). Denise came to stay the kids and they (the kids) had a great time. I think Denise did too. She did a great job--even took them to the Space Center for an outing and had two of their friends sleep over. She's brave!

I had never been to that part of the country before but had always wanted to go. Now I want to live there...if I had an extra couple of million dollars laying around. The scenery is just gorgeous. It really seems like you could be in France or Italy. We visited mostly small wineries that I had never heard of and we had awesome experiences--tours, private tastings, beautiful lunches. I'd definitely like to go back some day and see Napa Valley.
