Visit to Healdsburg

We went up to Healdsburg to visit the Flores family.  We pulled the kids out of school and drove up on Friday, then drove home on Monday, so we got two full days there plus Friday evening.  It was wonderful to see them as we really miss them. The kids all get along so wonderfully and everyone has a buddy.

Jolene made us delicious food, we drank some amazing Sonoma county wines, and we got to soak up the lovely spring weather and gorgeous green countryside and wildflowers.  On Saturday Jolene arranged for two babysitters to come watch our six kids, and we got to go explore for a few hours and taste at three different wineries in the Dry Creek region.  It's amazing how time flies when you just get to go be adults ;)  haha.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.  Jolene packed us a picnic and we soaked up each other and the beauty.

I recently told Matt I had never tried Korean food.  We were able to randomly meet up for lunch one day so we tried it.  The verdict... I think I should have asked the Korean people what to order, haha.  I felt like my dish was really bland, even though it looked delicious.

Alayna spends A LOT of time at her desk doing art of all sorts.  I'm so glad we got this for her last fall.

Everett was excited for this Minion donut.
The kids took their first dip in the pool the other week, since it was up to a whopping 69 degrees... haha.  They last fo…
