before we headed up on saturday i went to my training and andrew went to baseball practice. bobby and i also got our school's new blog up and running. it was nerve racking to put it out there but we are so excited about the future of our school. you can visit the site here.
bobby made the video. did you recognize the voices?
then we packed the car and headed to our first destination
something to keep us awake for the drive.
we left around sunset and the view was breathtaking.
i am not ashamed to admit that i had a bbq pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw, baked beans and a glass of merlot. ok i am feeling a little guilty when i put it that way.
i fell asleep on the couch. the mountain air does that to me.
in the morning we had pancakes.
then it was time to go to the snow. the cold, cold snow, where it's windy, and damp and cold. so, bobby took the kids
and i stayed home to knit (still knitting that same scarf)
and sit by the fire
and read (still reading that same book)
the kids came home and played. building forts
bobby did some work and we checked the blog stats to see how it was going.
dinner from the chinese restaurant in town and another glass of wine.
i know it looks like we drink a lot when we're up here but we don't.
i guess it depends on your definition of a lot.
some bedtime reading.
on monday we woke up to breakfast burritos and coffee. at least i didn't have wine with breakfast.
we took a walk to the creek that runs through their backyard.
this is the foundation of the new wine barn. we'll be making wine here next year.
the kids came home and we took showers, ate a little something and played with the iphone camera some more.
then we packed our stuff and the kids in the car and came home.
i was hoping to accomplish one of two goals for the weekend. to finish my book or to finish my scarf. i didn't do either but i did make significant progress on both. combine that with relaxing, enjoying time with people we love, eating well and an occasional glass of wine (or 2) and we call that the perfect weekend.
