Fun Weekend

We had a great weekend! On Friday night we went to a friend's house for a shrimp boil. Everything was delicious! My friend is a really good cook and being able to sit outside for a while and enjoy the weather was a lot of fun.

Then, on Saturday, we went to Lawrence to a few wineries with some of David's co-workers. First, we went to BlueJacket Crossing, then to Davenport Winery, and then to Kugler's Vineyard. BlueJacket was fun and busy because they were harvesting some grapes. Davenport was our favorite because it was run by an older gentleman who just loved giving tastings and who had really awesome wine bottle labels. Finally, Kugler's Vineyard was really cute because apparently before visiting you are supposed to make an appointment. We didn't realize that until we were literally in the driveway of their private house. After we noticed the neighbor peeking out of his house at us, we backed out of the driveway and called the owner, who was laughing at us and told us to come on in for a tasting. The wine there was delicious and the owner gave us a very good tour of their winery (which is housed in their basement). The best part was that the owners are from Prague (they left in 1982), so we chatted about Prague a bit before we finished. The wineries were so fabulous and we had a great time!

This morning we woke up mega early to go to mass and then I worked on painting our basement and dining room (with David's help!). We are painting everything a pretty gray color and I am excited to get our decorating underway!

I hope you had a great weekend as well!

I'm looking forward to seeing your newly-painted rooms, and Sarah and Steve's newly refinished floors!
