Napa Valley Adventure

You only turn 60 once in your life, so we took my Mom to Napa Valley to celebrate hers. Her two best girlfriends since kindergarten, my sister and I suprised her at the airport. What fun! She screamed so loud, they almost called security. I can't believe none of us blew it beforehand. Here's the weekend re-cap...

Food, food and more delicious food. All weekend, every meal got better and better...this was our first meal, delicious chicken piccata, creamy fettucine alfredo, field greens salad & pinot. 
Auntie Charlotte and my sister Julie at the La Crema Wine Tasting Room in charming Healdsburg. We waited until 12:01 to get started.
Adorable musician at the Bella Winery...played an instrumental "Happy Birthday" as we came in, due to my moms "crown" that she wore every second of the weekend...
Entering the Bella Winery "cave" for wine tasting...it was carved into the hillside, with the vineyard on top...so cool.
Dinner & the most delicious desserts at Ravenous in Healdsburg. Crab Cakes, Butternut squash soup, beet salad, Cod with grilled vegetables & cous cous...for dessert, creme brulee, banana creme torte, and chocolate strawberry shortcake. Every bite better than the last. 

Happy 60th mom...you're the best!

Without a doubt the best birthday ever!!! Couldn't believe that you kept a secret so long.. I must recommend wearing a crown on your birthday if you feel you need the attention, it was a blast!!!Thank you, thank you, thank you to the two best daughters ever, having given me 5 wonderful grandchildren would have been enough but I REALLY loved my week-end!!!!!!!
