My brother and his daughter happened to be in WF visiting my mom and decided to drive to Duncan to see my family. As I said, the wine festival was not very exciting with few booths and few attendees, but having my family there made things much more fun. We played with the GGs, who were highly entertaining, but eventually had to go home for a nap. As the afternoon wore on, we sat under a nice arbor shade and drank wine and just visited. Later we all went to supper at a local restaurant. It was good to see my big brother and my niece – a really nice day.
Years ago when we spent some time in Italy, I got very lonely for my family. I figure Catherine is missing her family about now and would enjoy some photos. So here is Craig amidst the wineglasses. Craig playing with GBN1 GBN2, Jes and Nina Grandma and Nina.
It started raining Saturday evening and rained all night and most of Sunday. The temperature was about 62. Toby decided it was a day to make gumbo, which turned out to be an all day affair. It was well worth the time. While sitting around eating gumbo, Jesse suggested a game of Trivial Pursuit. Some of you may be thinking, "How boring!" but we are pretty silly. We give each other a hard time for missed questions or for poor reading of the questions. Toby got this question: What was the last name of the Italian tractor magnate who decided to build his own cars when he became frustrated with his Ferrari?
Toby's answer: Fiat. (he had sound reasoning)
The correct answer: Lamborghini. (a Lamborghini tractor?)
Jesse's response: What person would want to drive a Fiat after having a Ferrari?
It may have been one of those "you had to be there" things, but we were pretty tired and thought it was very funny.
