21st Wedding Anniversary!

Celebrated 21 years of wedded bliss—a month early! We went to St. Helena—just north of Napa. Thanks to my 17 and 15-year-olds for watching the younger kids—including picking up everyone on their last days of school!

Dinner at the Culinary Institute of America’s Gatehouse Restaurant (St. Helena, CA location).

Only have one picture—but the tastes!!!! I cannot display that on a blog!!! If you are ever in Sonoma or Napa counties—you must try it!!!!! Gourmet four-course meal at a fraction of the cost. We savored every course—such layers of flavor!!! Masterpieces!!! (Our favorites were the tomato tartar, wild boar, and beer-braised halibut with beets).

We spent all day Friday at BottleRock! There were over 75 performers for the three-day weekend but we just attended Friday’s. We heard Shannon Shaw, Flora Cash, Vintage Trouble, Neon Trees, Jenny Lewis, AJR, One Republic, The War and Treaty, and Imagine Dragons. (Imagine Dragons was why we went, one of the few bands my husband has actually heard of and likes. But he ended up enjoying OneRepublic more).

Saturday we enjoyed sleeping in—til 9:30am!!! What?!? I know—never happens!

Then we ate a hearty breakfast and then picked up our electric bike rentals. Those made riding 15 or so miles, on bumpy, hilly terrain, that much more awesome.

(We spotted #4’s dream house—great views + an orange exterior!)

It was a wonderful few days away, doing things that we don’t often do, as well as doing things that we often do ;-). Hooray for 21 years with my amazing husband!!!
