4.) Fontanos Family Wine Tour: relational Christmas present finally organized
5.) Ryan and Jaimie's House Warming: big house, lots of land


MY FRIEND SETH

Emma and Seth were showing everyone their tricks. It is so fun to see how different the are. Emma had LOTS to say and Seth was very content observing.

Seth is getting cuter and cuter every time we see him. He looks so much like Karen yet so much like Clark.
We spent quite a while in the living room staring at the babes. The are very entertaining. Emma tried to dominate Seth and made him cry... yet another reason The Bem is very bad! :-)

You can buy the babes the fanciest toys but all you really need are some old VHS tapes and a really awesome ottoman lid.


Grandma bought the babes some very fun headbands. Emma was too hungry to think this was funny.

FRIDAY FAMILY DINNER
Friday my parents and bros stopped by on the way to the coast. I told them to come back with seafood and I would could dinner. We had a very nice evening on the patio, I LOVE summer nights!

Menu:
Cherry Habenero Tuna steak and Chicken Breast
Fresh Crab Legs w/ lemon butters
BBQ'd Pesto Oysters
Roasted Red Pepper garlic mashed potatoes
Asiago Asparagus
Kalamata Olive Bread
Roasted Corn on the Cob

MY FRIEND TANNER

Im so excited that Tanner is here... oh and of course Chad, Kylie and Tyler too. Saturday Phil and Chad went golfing, Jenn was working, Brad and Pete were working on the siding so Sharon, Kylie and I played with the babies. I tried my hardest to tag along as much as possible to hold Tanner as much as possible. He is so precious! He looks just like a baby man.

LIMO WINE TOUR

Phil and I paid for a Limo Wine Tour for my parents and grandparents. It was soooooo much fun!! It is probably my new favorite thing. I want to visit all the cellars/wineries/vineyards in the valley. To see the map and details click here.
This is a great website to plan your own tour!

Our 5 hour Tour:
Eola Hills-Brunch. 10 thumbs up!
Van Duzer-picture off their patio below
Left Coast Cellars

Van Duzer was beautiful! I haven't been to many but so far this one is my favorite. My mom treated me to any bottle of wine of my choice. after tasting all of them i chose my favorite....oops, it happened to be the most expensive one but my mom insisted. Now we need to find a special ocassion for our $50 bottle of wine.


The Ladies at Left Coast. (so i stared at this picture for a long time... do i look like my mom? She has the most beautiful blue eyes... I have always had a thing for blue eyes, that is why I married Phil. I think I look like my Filipino aunties... Do I look like my dad?)


So when we gave the present to my grand/parents I wrote out a note on a wine glass instead of a card. My grandma kept it and brought it on the tour for her own tasting glass, isn't she so cute!


We had a fun busy weekend! So far this summer every weekend has been fun and busy. I guess that is what happens when your husband is gone all week, you fill your weekends full to catch up.

Winkie's House
After lunch at the Woodsman for Thai food and a quick nap we made it to the Winkie's new house! It is nice and not that far away. They have a big field that we discussed a possible camp out... I vote yes!
