The Wedding

After the two fun days exploring and learning more about the area of Sonoma County we came to the reason for our trip, the wedding!  The morning of the wedding we visited some of the vineyards close to the house.  The first one had some of my dad and Jacob’s favorite things, dogs and tractors. So they spent most of the time playing outside.

Then we went to Martin Ray vineyards where they had a pretty garden area so we could do our tasting outside.

Afterwards we celebrated with a drink!

That evening we went over to our friends house for a relaxing BBQ dinner.  The house they rented is on a golf course and had a huge deck where we sat around and visited and chased Jacob around,

We had a delicious dinner!
















And then just like that, our vacation was over.  The next day we all went our separate ways to make the journey home.  It was really a nice getaway and to spend it with friends and family made it even better!

While unloading Jake’s car seat and all our luggage at the airport, Justin thought it would be easier to leave Jake strapped in so we didn’t have the chase after him while getting all our things.  Wonder what the other people thought when they saw this on the side of the street 🙂
