S's Wine Party

So, the wine we made came to fruition a few weeks back, and we had some friends over to the wine shop to bottle it. Here are some photos:

It was a nice night so we set up our food outdoors.

LM came for a while, then left with Nonna and Papaw.

He was there long enough to eat some cheese and chocolate!

Once most everyone arrived, we starting our bottling lesson.

I wish this wasn't blurry.

But, alas, I realized about halfway through the evening that my lens was on manual focus. Oh, the trouble with bad 40-something eyes. I thought something was off, but I didn't pay attention enough to figure it out until several shots later. Oy.

Better focus, except the boy's focus was elsewhere.

This was a small world moment - our friends Kirk and Kathy knew cousin Lynn!
Their boys are on the same soccer team.

Then we visited outside a bit longer before we headed home.

It was a fun event and nice to see our friends who we don't see often enough. Glad most everyone was able to make it!

See you soon.
