I am so far behind! I need to rapid fire some blogs at you to catch up, but the first of many is of the day following our Big Birthday (and birthday party), we headed out on a trip to nearby wine country, Temecula, which is about an hour away from our home.
Bill’s Parents, often referred to as “Rogers 1.0” by us (they call us “Rogers 2.0”), gifted us an overnight in Temecula for Christmas to take place sometime in 2016, and we decided it would be really fun to piggy back and do it birthday weekend! We started out our adventure at Stone Brewing where they give you a beer float for your birthday. The location is gorgeous and was the perfect place to start off the day. Excellent food, wonderful service and of course world renowned beer. It honestly never disappoints.
After such a strong start, we headed to wine country, and wow what a perfect day we had! The weather was perfect, the wine was flowing, and we just had the best time. Bill’s parents are so easy to hang out with and when we are together we always have such a lovely time. It is all about family to us! We snacked and drank our way through 4 wineries and landed at a fun and funky gastropub for dinner downtown.
After all that drinking, we turned in early and shared some laughs at the breakfast buffet the next morning, fighting a big group for the waffle maker and ignoring the fact that our microwaved bacon was a little unappetizing.
As Tim Riggins said often, “Makin’ Memories.”
We certainly did, and I cannot wait to go back.
We are all contemplating joining a wine club and making it a quarterly thing… Only time will tell!
