Maya was amazing in the recital on Saturday. The dance studio is so popular the show is 3+ hours. Don and the guys took a little break from all the fun and went to a local pub at half-time, aka intermission. They missed all the big girls dance, and we missed all the heavy sighing and constant shifting and fidgeting in their seats. Ha. Not really.
It was a gorgeous, sunny day on Sunday, so we all decided to visit a winery at lunchtime. We went to Sunstone first, where we all ooed and aah'd over their Merlot. And then headed to Gainey Vineyards for wine tasting and a picnic. It's a gorgeous place with really yummy wines.
We tasted five. Each one of us had our favorite. Here's what the family had to say.
2009 Sauvignon Blanc
"Ooh, it's a little sweet." Kris
"Oh, it's really good. My kind of chard." Caroline

2008 Pinot Noir
"May I have another sample, please?" Caroline
"Hey, it doesn't smell like goat!" Kris
"This merlot is excellent." Dave
"This one's my favorite." Kris
"It makes me happy." Kathy
Don ditched us and disappeared into the special tasting area where they were pouring Evan's Ranch wines to the fancy people. That's my Don.
I don't think anyone will be knocking on our doors asking us to judge anytime soon! Unless the scale for judging is yum, yummy and excellent.
