You can tell she treats, values, and loves her employees and they feel the same way about her. If Angus likes the other employee's dogs, they are welcomed to come to work with their owners. After walking through the plant, we were all given lots of cool stickers and made a sticker postcard before we left. This will be a great addition to the boy's collection of postcards from everywhere we traveled on our RV trip.
After the tour, we picked Chris up and headed east to Sonoma after passing through grape fields on every hill. The countryside was pretty and the town of Sonoma even quainter. We walked around the town square for a couple hours stopping for the boys to play at the park, drinking a bottle of sparkling grape juice soda, tasting cheese, and grabbing a bite to eat.
We thought Napa would be even better, but were surprised when we arrived downtown. Driving to Napa, we spotted many wineries to stop for a tour and a wine tasting, but we didn't have time today. We were expecting Napa to be very quaint, but seemed to look like alot of other towns
Another stop we made in Napa was COPIA...a great place to learn about the wine making process. We spent an hour at the "Fork in the Road" section that appealed to kids and then road the free trolley down Main Street to Fuller Park. This park was a big hit for Keegan and Collin with the big playground, large shade trees, and grass area to throw the baseball with Dad. We met another homeschool family there who have been considering selling their home and RVing it also.
Game 3 of the NBA playoffs between the Jazz and Warriors started at 6:00pm, so we listened on the radio as we drove back west to Petaluma to find a sports bar to watch.
This weekend is supposed to be beautiful and we will take a day trip to the Calistoga area tomorrow. -Kelly
PS-My neck feels so.................much better thanks to Dr. Osgood, my new favorite Chiropractor. I can't believe how much I can move it since he adjusted me and my pinched nerve is gone as of tonight. Thank God!
