Our trip to Sonoma earlier this year has had the unfortunate effect of turning “winery” into a bad word. So the word was not uttered when we decided to enjoy a picnic on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

The kids were thrilled to discover the ducks to feed and even more thrilled when a little turtle popped his head out of the water. Lucas named the turtle Kevin. Then he named about ten more turtles Kevin.

The pier allowed us to get close to the turtles, even scooping one out of the water.

According to Webster, wine is defined as an alcoholic drink made from the juice of grapes.
According to me, wine is defined as a delicious alcoholic drink made from the juice of grapes that allows me to relax, forget about the million things constantly running through my head for long enough to just enjoy.

A perfect Saturday afternoon

“Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.”
