a day in the sunshine


it was a beautiful day out on the lake. we went kayaking, drank some wine, laid around in the sunshine while drinking some more wine, ate delicious dinner and drank some more wine. then we headed into traverse city to a fun restaurant called trattoria stella & grabbed a couple more glasses of wine.

we're really looking forward to this weekend, attending what will hopefully be an awesome dinner as part of the epicurean classic, a culinary festival which traverse city hosts every year. good food & good wine are the subject matter for this palate focused weekend. we'll see how it turns out. it's its 5th year running & according the locals, it just gets better every year. like wine.

it's been amazing being up in michigan. it is so peaceful that it's just about impossible to do anything but relax & enjoy. and drink wine. did i mention we like wine? :)

Great picture of you guys. It is now our desktop wallpaper. How was the tri tip? Lots of love, Your Grandma & Grandpa from Reno

that would be stupendous! i love family outings. i can already picture caden screaming in delight at the water.

tri-tip was, um, de-LICIO-us. still is. lots of leftovers. maybe i'll post pictures of it. (..following the example of my oh-so-considerate uncle bubbis. except i'll put mine in recycled jelly jars, not blue bonnet margarine containers.)

Bubbis said...

Um. Those were your Gramma's Blue Bonnet margarine containers. By the way Mom did you want the empty containers back to refill them? :)

bethany weaver said...

don't do it, grandma! you must resist the temptation to fill your baby boy's refrigerator with delicious leftovers! [mostly because it makes the rest of us jealous and HE KNOWS IT. that little punk..]

some of us are in the heart of Porkroast and Knuddle land, and other are a six hour flight (not including stop overs for connecting flights) away.
