The weather was about as good as it can get, with the sun shining and the temperatures hovering around 80 degrees. The kids were better than the weather. You would think taking kids to wineries would be a tedious affair, but not with these two. They were in and out of those car seats enough times to make your head spin, and yet they did not complain a single time. It truly was a magical day.
I spent more time than I care to think about putting together a slide show of the memories, but for some reason youtube does not like it - even though I used the same program (Windows Live Photo Gallery) that I always do. So then last night I decided to just load a few of my favorite photos of the weekend. Blogger didn't like them. This morning after spinning all night, the pictures had still not loaded. Grrrrrr.
So here I am, saying life is good. Time is short. Fall is busy. Technology is frustrating. Family is priceless. The colors of Fall are breathtaking. And I am still around and will catch up with all of my bloggy friends soon!
Now I am going to try one more time to load a picture or two. If it doesn't happen almost immediately, then too darn bad. This will be a vanilla blog. I like vanilla, don't you?
|Brotherly love. Allen watches over Reagan - except, of course, when he is tormenting her. So often I want to call him little Greg... he is so much like his daddy!|
|Mother and daughter - words of wisdom|
|Nobelis Winery Vinyard|
|Nobelis winery in Augusta had these huge balls for the kids to play on. They spent forever rolling down the long hills and bopping each other back an forth.|
|If I could only read her miind right now|
|Reagan and Allen on the way to the last winery - what troopers!|
