It was a nice Saturday, this weekend
After washing all 4 struggling Bostons (what a workout) and bringing the youngest to the pool so that "his hair could get blonde faster",
I saw that my husband was restless and wanted to get out of the house.
So, we just got in the car and drove! An hour later, we were up in Beautiful Julian!
We had some GREAT wine tasting, mmm mm mmm!
After that, we went up into down town Julian and followed the smokey smell to the local BBQ place.... we had the best smoked tri -tip sandwich! I ate bread, call the police!
It was such a beautiful day.... there was a nice breeze and all of the green grasses were blowing in the wind. There were very few people up there, unlike in the Autumn. We walked around and stopped in to the little candy shop. We got some local honey, some homemade peanut butter cups, and some Swedish Fish for the boys.
Then the BEST thing happened... someone was selling big bunches of LILACS on the corner! I bought a great big bunch for $5. The car smelled so good on the way back home. It was funny, after we bought them, we walked around the corner and saw the tree that the guy had most likely stolen them from. Oh well, I am just happy to have them!
Can you smell them?!
They are keeping me in a happy mood!
We stopped at Trader Joes for wine on the way home....
didn't want to pay $20 for one bottle when we could get 4 for $10!!
It was a nice day.
