Wine Country

Jason and I went to Napa for the first time for our 12th anniversary. He is not a wine drinker (or was not) but he kept up with me pretty good. It was so beautiful and relaxing. We learned so much and met some great people.

I bought this dessert wine at the Andretti winery. Yum!!!
This was our favorite one. It was called Silverado. It was up on a hill over looking the vineyareds. It almost looks fake it was so pretty. This is where Jason bought his first bottle of wine. He has good taste! It was a reserve wine that was 90$!!!!!!!!!!! You only live once, right?

This was an amazing Italian Castle winery. Everything was brought over from Italy, even the employees:) It took 15 years to build.

Queen for a day!

After all that wine he demanded some beer:)

Our friends live 45 minutes from Napa and they came up one day to take us around where they were members. We got the star treatment.
Then we headed to San Fran where we went for our honeymoon. Can't believe it has been 12 years since we were here!

Union Square. Lots of great shopping and eats!

Self portrait at a night club. It was fun to be in another city dancing with no curfew:)

This is the Palace of Fine Arts. Absolutely beautiful place. We decided next trip to San Fran is with the kids. We so enjoyed our time there, but sure did miss the girls!

March Madness

March has been CRAZY busy! Sara is growing up so fast. She wrote me this letter the other day and I almost cried. She is going to be in first grade next year. She is getting so independent.

Jason took me to Sedona for the day on my birthday. It was a beautiful day. We ate, drank, shopped and took in the views.

Silly girls! We had dinner at my parents for my bday. Madelyn "scrapped" a birthday card for me.

So value my time with my parents. It is apparent to me that they are getting older as well and I can't take for granted the time we share.

I went with Sara on her first field trip. Fun times!

Railroad park

She was so proud of herself doing the monkey bars all by herself.

We went to the Wild Life Zoo too, but can't get those pics to upload:( The girls kept saying "this is the best day ever." Days like that make all the madness worth it!
