On Labor Day Firstborn went with us up to Highlands for a mini "get outta town". He helped Hubby with some tree trimming while I mowed the hill. We had a few little projects to do here and there, but once it got too hot, we stopped. Then we all got cleaned up and headed to a nearby winery to relax.
I forgot to pack snacks for us as I didn't even think about it...its a good thing they sell cheese plates!
It was hot, but there were cool breezes and the company was in a good mood. Firstborn did a tasting and we ended up with a nice, chilled rose. That evening we grilled some chicken and stayed up by the fire until very late, listening to coyotes howl far away...maybe not so far since we could hear them fairly well!
Firstborn doesn't really have a wine appreciation, but I think he likes tagging along with us now and again. And wouldn't it be great to have patio like this? Looking out over the hill country with a couple of lakes in the distance? Our little hill will have a patio someday with a pretty view of a lake. Until then...
