Weekend Update: Girls Weekend! Charli's first trip to Napa:

Steven was in New York for the weekend for one of his best friend's bachelor parties... So what better way for Charli and I to spend the weekend, then to head up to Napa and have a girls weekend with my Aunt Traci (yes, I was named after her!). So our weekend started super early on Friday morning, as we drove Steven to the San Fran airport at 4 AM. Which meant we made it to Napa just in time to watch the sun rise over the mountains and vineyards!

We also made it to my Aunt's house just in time for a little coffee and breakfast together! And for all the fur children to play! :) We always bring Bailey and Bogey with us to Napa, so they can spend time with their cousins Kobie and Penny (Aunt Traci's 2 fur babies!)

Friday started off with a nice little nap taken by both Charli and I, then we headed out to my Aunt's barn to spend the gorgeous afternoon picnicking, sipping on champagne, and giving Charli her very first riding lesson!  (Yes, she has ridden a horse before she could even crawl!) ;)


Baby's first Levi's! hehe

Such a little natural

bahahaha! Oh Lucky!

Lucky, why are you chewing on the rope sir?

Such a handsome boy

We ended Friday with walking up to the local Mexican restaurant in downtown Calistoga (had a margarita for National Margarita day of course), and listened to the mariachi band while we had a wonderful dinner!

Saturday morning we woke up and took all the fur children for a morning walk and let them run around the park for a little bit, then headed home to get ready for yet another gorgeous day in the Napa Valley! We went to a few wineries, followed by another perfect picnic on the lawn of Trinchero! It was an absolutely perfect day!

And yes, that is Bailey riding on the stroller... such a little princess...

I love love when the mustard is out! How beautiful is that!

A baby napping in a winery during a wine tasting... appropriate? I think yes! You have to start them early!

Already so in love with our sweet girl! 

We woke up Sunday morning and said our goodbyes, and headed off to the San Fran airport to pick up daddy! Charli also got her first "I (heart) NY" onesie from daddy! We all made it home safe and sound, and I think it is safe to say it was a fun weekend had by all! 

Here are a couple of videos I got while in Napa!
(this is the first time trying to upload videos, so I hope it works)

Charli thought Kobie was the funniest thing ever! Adorable! 

A new trick that Charli learned on Saturday! :)

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
