Family Time

Ok, so you guys weren't a fan of the giveaway.  That's ok, it actually made it a lot easier because I didn't have to blog from my phone!  Maybe next time ;-)

I just got back from spending a week with my family.  I started the trip at my parents' house before heading to my sister's a little further up the road.  My mom was nice enough to help me with some crafting projects (I'm pretty much hopeless on my own) and then they watched Maddux while I ventured to my sister's for a few days.

My sister had a lot planned for the few days we had together.  We started out visiting a couple of local wineries.  I really enjoyed our tastings!  One of the wineries had a gorgeous porch and the other had live music and even hot air balloon rides.  Both places seemed like they would be great to hang out at and enjoy a glass of wine with friends.

The next day we got up early and walked to a local donut shop that's been around since the 1930s and then had a coffee picnic in the park.  We got to watch Barley splash around in the water after we were done with our delicious donuts.  It was the perfect way to start the day!  

We had another early morning on Friday so that we could have an adventure at a castle near my sister's house.  We got a good three mile hike in on the trails around the castle before having a mini photo shoot with her pup.  The hills were definitely a workout!  I wish I lived closer so I could go on more of their adventures with them! 

Now Mad Dog and I are back to our normal summer routine for a few days.  I've been working on organizing my apartment and it is a slow, slow process, but I love the results so far!

I hope every one has a great start to their week!
