The Day After . .

. . .a weekend of family fun!!

so its Monday again and we had a weekend filled with combined birthday and Easter celebrations!  My sister’s birthday was earlier in the week and my Dad’s birthday was Saturday so he decided to come out to our neck of the woods and lunch at one of our favorite wineries, Ponte Winery.

But first I took a little walk to the local park in our community.  Every year the day before Easter our local park has an Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. I walk over because it’s only a 6 minute walk and the streets and parking lot get packed.  I meet my sister, brother in law and my nephews there so I can watch them run around stealing gently picking up Easter eggs and toys on the soccer field. (Just kidding they are the best kids and don’t do that!)  This was my view during my little walk and it was so peaceful and all I could hear were the birds chirping but once I got to the park it was mayhem and now that I think of it I should have a taken a picture of the crowd!

Later in the day we drove to Ponte Winery for lunch and wine tasting (which ended up just being a full glass wine).  The nice option is that as a member you can ask for a full glass of wine (if you have a favorite) instead of wine tasting.  There is also a separate “members only” area away from the public tasting so you can sit at tables or relax on a couch while enjoying your wine.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
