California

Pin It
Last spring my husband's oldest brother got engaged to his lovely med-school sweetheart.  And ever since then the whole family had been looking forward to our excuse to enjoy some time in the wine country of northern California :-)

We left the Sunday before the wedding and met up with another brother-in-law and uncle at the airport.  We headed to Costco to shop for groceries at Costco with my sister-in-law and her family since we were in charge of dinner that night.  My husband's grandmother had generously provided my mother-in-law's side of the family with the opportunity to spend an entire week in two gorgeous estates in Sonoma.

The week was pretty low-key (for those of us NOT in charge of wedding-related events!), but it did include two hikes (I sprained my ankle on the second), a tour of EA games for Brice with our nephew, plenty of hot tub time, several wineries, lots of olive oil tasting, and a fun dinner at the CIA!  The joke of the evening was our pondering of why so many menu items were in quotes.

The rehearsal dinner was a picnic at a park in Yountville and we had a great turnout and good food.  I even played some Bocce ball and cornhole with family, despite my injury.  The wedding on Saturday turned out beautifully and was just like our Pinterest planning boards.  Here are a few pics:

We had some time to kill on Sunday before our flight out so we went into San Francisco and checked out the science museum and the sea lions.
