This weekend was Alex's birthday. (my homegirl, Sharon's hubby)
To celebrate, we headed to my parent's cabin located in the Shenandoah Valley. This area is not only wine country, but is surrounded by lots of mountains, trees and breathtaking views and vistas. It is only an hour east of Sacramento, but being that there are over 40 wineries, it usually takes us about 4-5 hours to get to the cabin. (hiccup)
I only managed to take a few photos, but I wanted to share a winery that is now one of our favorites! Mt. Aukum Winery.
Not only is the vino off the hook, (Petit Syrah won double gold in the San Francisco Chronicle competition, which is one of the most prestigious competitions in the country. so we were told), but the views and wine pourers were amazing. I wanted to share some pics, so you wouldn't have to just take my word for it. :D
We had so much fun, and I hope to visit this winery again. We finally made it to the cabin, that is located on top of a steep ridge, where we bbq'd it up and had a fabulous dinner.
Later, the boys passed out watching tv, and I gave Sharon a tutorial class on making little books out of paper lunch bags. If it weren't for craft hour, we probably would have been passed out like the boys by 9:00pm. (rankers)
Sunday was followed by a wonderful breakfast, some more chillin and then we packed up and headed back to Sacramento. I tell ya, a little time away from the hustle and bustle was just what the doctor ordered!
