Mother's Day Fun

Yanks RV Resort
Greenfield, CA

I had the best Mother's Day this year.
Our manager let me take the day off
so I could spend the day with my Mom.

I drove up and attended church with her,
first time in almost a year!

Our favorite winery was having an event,
so we joined Connie and her daughter Julie
for a wine and cupcake pairing.

It was interesting, they had 3 mini-cakes,
all different flavors.
A lemon flavored one paired with the Chardonnay..

..while the red velvet and chocolate ones
paired with the several red wines.

It was actually very good!

It was pretty packed, a lot of women there, and a few men :-)

We got to sit in the VIP room..

We also have some exciting news..

we are going on a cruise to Alaska in August!

My Mom surprised us a few months back
by asking us if we wanted to join her.
It will be on American Cruise Lines,
embarking in Juneau, cruising to different ports,
and ending back in Juneau.

We're so excited!!!
It'll be the week before the wedding,
so it's going to be a busy month!


  1. Wow, Alaska!!! I love cruises, and Alaska is a great destination. I can't wait to see all of your cruise pics!!

  2. Somehow cupcakes and wine aren't something I think of as going together. Glad you all enjoyed them and the day. We did an Alaska cruise of the Inside Passage years ago and loved it. From Seattle though and back. You'll have a great time.

  3. What a fun Mother's Day and a fantastic surprise as well!

    Looking forward to reading all about that cruise as that is a smaller cruise line and supposedly a very personal experience much different from the larger lines.

    Glad all is well with you, we are back in Custer for our 2nd season at Buffalo Ridge and loving it!

  4. We're doing a Caribbean cruise in July with our daughter and grandsons. Marti has been bugging me for years to do the Alaska cruise so we'll be interested in your trip.

  5. Oh my gosh -- an Alaskan cruise!! How exciting!!! We're still hoping to get there one way or another at some point.
