happy 4th!

What a great getaway weekend! I woke up super early this morning, at least for me, and have been fooling around on the computer with the 8 pictures that I took and trying to decide what I would write today. Well, I’m sleepy, so you’ll get a picture montage of our weekend*. Too bad I didn’t get more pictures of our wine tour the first day, but it’s super hard to take pictures with a wine glass in your hand…

Big giant metal chickens were on my mind, so it was pretty funny that I came across this at our picnic lunch on Friday. We also saw it’s twin in Petaluma on Sunday… it’s an epidemic of chicken sized proportions.


Group shot of our awesome tour group. Platypus Tours was great!

This is on the property of MacArthur Place where we’re staying this weekend. Great sculptures and art scattered all around.

Notice the life size chessboard behind the flower. This was one of the few times we walked by and someone wasn’t playing.

The lovely lavender fields of Matanzas Creek Winery.

Later Saturday afternoon we drove over to Petaluma so Joe could see the TWiT cottage live and in person. I also might have yelled “Shwood!” out the window when we saw Brian Brushwood walking down the street. Then while having lunch we decided to let him know it was me screaming like a crazy person…

Giant metal farm animals were a theme.
