Family weekend…

After this past week’s crazy weather, we ended up having a wonderful weekend after all! 🙂

My step-daughter & her husband came for the weekend.  Even though the weather was still blustery & rainy, we had a great time at several of the local wineries.

After a nice light lunch, we headed out to Norman Hardie Winery & Vineyard to check it out:

By this time we had all had enough and it was starting to rain again so we headed on home before going out to dinner….
