Slept in. Matt and I went to Napa Valley (Robert Mondavi Winery, specifically) at noon. We had a great tour and a few glasses of wine (there was one extra…waste not, want not!).
I read about this place...on a bottle.
I wonder why she feels so cast out...
This is what we're here for.
Those grapes grow on these posts.
And those posts are in this field.
This is where the grapes go when they are ready for processing
Now this is a wine cellar.
What a wine tour must look like to kids.
Which to choose, which to choose...
We had lunch at a Mexican restaurant, then headed to the Headlands. I called Molly to confirm our plans in Chicago as we drove across the Golden Gate Bridge.

Matt and I walked around Golden Gate Park until it was time to meet Sandia at the R&G Lounge for Chinese food.
Golden Gate Park? Sure, why not. The file name suggests it is.

We then went to a Hawaiian bar for drinks and to meet up with Long, Laurie, and some more of Sandia’s friends. I left there around 11:30, got home and did laundry before going to sleep.
