Small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.


Fun Day Friday

Since Friday is my Saturday it's usually packed full of fun stuff for Landon and I. This Friday Adam was off so we got to spend the day together. I had taken Landon to Skyzone a few months ago for their Toddler Time and he loved it. Adam had been wanting all of us to go together so he could take pictures, but I've been hesitant to take Landon when it's open to everyone. Toddler time is for ages 5 and under and only on Fridays from 11am-12pm. Since Adam was off this Friday we took advantage and went.

Landon loves to run around, play with the balls, and jump in the pit. I need to make a point to take him to Toddler Time more often, because it's great exercise for him...and me. It's actually a major workout and I'm not sure who was more worn out at the end of the hour. An hour is the perfect amount of time for his age and for only $8 for one parent and kid it's a great activity. Landon's favorite part this time was jumping in the styrofoam pit with me. He kept asking for my hand so we could go jump in together.

I can see Landon having a birthday party there in a couple of years. Skyzone is a lot of fun for kids of all ages (including the adult kids) and is a perfect activity for bad weather days. Since Landon's birthday is January 29th I'm always making a mental list of places he can celebrate his birthday as he gets a little older. It's part of my guilt for having a child in the middle of winter.

On a side note, it's great to have a husband who's an awesome photographer, but I hate that he is always taking the pictures and hardly ever in them. I need to take over the camera every once in awhile and take the pictures so he can be in them. I know I won't be able to take the quality pictures that he takes, but we need pictures of him and Landon too.

Friday night my dad and I went a wine club event at Huber's Winery. My girlfriend and I have been going to Huber's consistently for about a year now to have girl's days. We always have a good time doing a wine tasting, getting some food and sharing a bottle of wine. A few months ago they mentioned to us that they had a wine club with special benefits for members. Since my dad loves wine and is the hardest person in the world to get a gift for, I decided it would be the perfect gift for him and something we could do together. If you know anyone who likes wine then a membership is a great gift idea. There are quarterly wine shipments that they send out to all of their members, there are special member-only events, and special discounts. Wine members also get free wine tasting for themselves and four other people anytime they visit. Score! The event Friday night was a little hampered by the rain, but still great. We had a wine tasting, dinner, live music and a vineyard tour. The wine tasting was supposed to happen in the vineyard (which would have been so neat), but due to all the rain it was in the cellar instead.

Dad and I had a great time enjoying a few of their wines, having dinner and touring the vineyard. Huber's is an amazing family owned farm. It's not just a winery either, they have something for everyone and it's enjoyable year round. We've taken Landon there the last two years to pick pumpkins just as I went growing up. I'm looking forward to going back in a few weeks to pick strawberries with Landon. Speaking of strawberries they had the best strawberry sangria which is seasonal only so I'll have to go back soon. I always enjoy a good sangria.

On a final note, happy mother's day to all the mom's! Hope you enjoy your special day. Here is one of my favorite mother's day pictures. This is Adam's grandmother with Landon in 2011 when he was just over 4 months old. To me this picture just sums up a mother's love.
