I'm Back!!

Hi all!!
I'm back from my week long vacation!!
We had such a great time, but I missed all of you, and your blogs.
These are just a few photos of this and that from vacation.
We started in San Ramon, and stayed with my brother and his family.
We enjoyed visiting with our 3 nephews. They are all such great kids!!
We visited so many cute and quaint areas in Norther California. My brother is only an hour from Napa. We went to the most entertaining wine dinner. You can see all 4 of us in front of the winery owners car.
We went on a ghost tour in Pleasanton, we had lovely dinners including a wonderful one in Walnut Creek on our anniversary. We went to Castle in the Air, a magical shop I have been wanting to visit. I also went to American Harvest, another great shop you may know about. Half the time I would forget to take pictures because I was so into what I was doing. Several more shops in Danville too!
We ended our vacation at this beautiful golf resort near San Jose and Gilroy. As you can see from the photos, we had an amazing view of the golf course. My husband golfed for 2 days and I relaxed. It was the first time for me to relax in awhile.
It was so much fun, but I was glad to get home yesterday and see my daughter her husband and of course baby Jake. He looks so much bigger in just a week.
I will try to catch up with all of you as soon as I can. I am up to my elbows in laundry, and Halloween festivities.
Have a Happy and safe Halloween!!
Glad to be back!
Chat soon.
