Jen's Birthday Dinner

We were only a little late getting Jen's birthday celebrated this year. But thank goodness everyone understands that we rarely hit the exact day. Trevor came over a little early to help us get a jump on the cooking and the wine drinking. It was a familiar French bill-o-fare: Peppered steaks in a creamy mushroom sauce, leeks au gratin, a fresh garden salad including avacado, candied walnuts, and a cilantro dressing, yummy bread and butter, and apple tart. Oh, and we threw in some Banana's Foster for good measure.

Do You Take Cream or Sugar?

The man knows exactly how he likes his coffee. He'll fix it himself, thank you very much. Yes, that's real coffee. And yes, he's good for at least one full cup at McLintock's.

Robob took the whole gang to McLintock's for breakfast today, and we were even down one adult (Matt was in Colorado on business). Brave soul!

Threshing Bee

When was the last time you attended a threshing bee? Yeah, we had never been to one before either. What a hoot! And why did we not know about this Jack Creek Farms place?! Very fun, very family place to visit. And they have events happening all the time; at least it seems like that for Fall anyway.

Here are our photos from today:

While you're in the air...

When we were in the car yesterday Serafina was describing how to do a front flip. "First you dive forward, then when you are in the air living the good life, you focus and land on your feet!" Could more truer words be spoken?

Great grandfathers, that is. We visited a couple wineries today with two great grandfathers!

Bob Jones Trail

While Tracy and Matt were out celebrating their tenth anniversary, the rest of the family and some of the Phillips family joined us for us a hike down the Bob Jones Trail, some play time at the Avila park, and dinner from the Hula Hut. What a day!
