Winery Trip

Post by: Beth

Sorry we've been a little slow posting lately.. we've been busy with trips home, visitors (yey!), holidays, and of course, work. I had a few minutes tonight so wanted to post some pictures from a trip to one of the wineries here in Missouri. This is apparently a bit of a tradition for St. Louis residents and visitors and our friends Kim & Calvin invited us when the opportunity became available. I think Calvin's work does this every year.. gets a bunch of people together and takes a bus up to a select winery. You spend the whole day there trying different wines, eating lunch, laying on blankets in the sun, looking at the miles and miles of fields, and listening to blues bands. It was a great time, and we were very excited to be able to take part in this tradition before our time here is over. On a side note, Kim & Calvin are recently engaged, so huge congratulations to them!! :)

Not a ton of time to blog tonight.. Rishi is in town visiting and Mom, Casey, & Alex just left, so we have some cleaning up and more entertaining to do. :) Such a great weekend w/visitors.. We'll post pictures from that soon!

For now, here's some shots from our winery trip!




















As you can see, we had a great time.. we ate good food, drank great wine, spent time with fun friends, and laughed a lot. Of course it warranted a nap for me on the way home on the bus.. you know it was a good day when you can't make it home without a nap! ;)
