What did you do this weekend?
We spent the weekend in Kernville with Bob and D. Had such a great time, relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.
We went because we were bottling the wine that we've been making. So proud of the work that everyone did. It was fun to be a part of something with such tradition. Everyone who tried the wine agreed, it's awesome. Here's a picture of Bobby holding the very first bottle. He was involved in the entire process, from picking the grapes to bottling and here he is holding the finished product. And in case you were wondering, we drank that bottle at lunch.
We went Quad riding on Sunday up in the mountains. It was refreshing to be in the woods. Jordan took his quad out with his grandpa, while Bobby rode with Becky, Jeff, Derek and Melissa. I stayed with Sofia and Andrew. I took Sofia on a spin on Andrew's little bike. Shhh, don't tell Grandma Sue and Tita. Sofia LOVES it. I think she may want to take it up as a pastime.
We got her hair up in ponytails for the first time. I've been waiting a long time for that. Doesn't she look cute?
In other news Jordan had his Spring performance last Friday. They did a CHA salute to TV and Film theme songs. Jord's second grade class did the song from THE JEFFERSONS - "Well we're moving on up, to the east side. . .", the theme from CHEERS, with mugs and all, and "Staying Alive" from SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, with the hand gestures and everything. The crowd went wild. He always has so much fun performing. I don't know where he gets it from ; )
Andrew had his school's farewell picnic today. We went to a park in Simi Valley that has a water area. The kids wore their swim trunks and were able to run around and get wet. Not Andrew though. He wanted to stay dry. At first I spent more time chasing Sofia around and keeping her safe than I did spending time with Andrew.
But once Sue got there I could push Andrew on the swings and chase him around. He refused to ride the school bus. In the car he told me that the bus might rock the bus driver to sleep. It will be sad to see Andrew leave Weekday Preschool. He had three wonderful years there and I know he will miss his friends and teachers. The teachers are already fighting over who will get Sofia when she goes there. I can't imagine life with three kids in school at the same time, ahhh.
