Mickey Mouse 4th Birthday Party

In preparing for Josie's Fifth Birthday party this year, I realized I never posted her Mickey Mouse Birthday party that we threw her last year. Since we were going on our Disney Cruise in September, we had a Mickey Mouse party for her birthday.

We had decorations of every kind, mostly handmade and we had a bouncy house for the kids. They absolutely loved it! And some adults even got in it. (Mama Carole!)

Be ready for photo overload!

Heading Home! California Day 7.5

Well today we headed home. Josie wanted to live in California until we told her she wouldn't have her cousins or her grandparents to play with. Funny thing was, she said that Mama Carole wanted to move to Tennessee, so she'd move there with her. Don't know what that is all about.

Anyway, we had a layover in Vegas. Mike and I neither one, know why we didn't get a room there and stay the night so that we could see some of Vegas. Even with Josie, we could have gone sightseeing. Oh well! We'll go back there at some point.

Full Day Resting, California Day 7

We spent our last day just hanging in the pool and resting up for our trip the next day.

Wineries and Resting Day, California Day 6

We rode through the mountains on some back roads to the local wineries. It was absolutely gorgeous.

Our first stop was Wente Winery. It was really pretty there and they had some very good wines. It is the oldest continuously operated family winery. That says something in this day and age.

While we were tasting the lady told us that there was two more wineries to go see. One was just right across the parking lot. So we bought our stash at this winery and headed to the next.

By the time we were done we had hit three wineries and Brandy & I tasted at each of them. While Jim played with and occupied Josie.

We then headed back and laid out in the pool. After eating supper, we walked down to the "lake" there at their housing edition. Mikey & Jim fished and Josie, Brandy & I fed the ducks.
