First Wine Tasting with Kids

It was a great success!! Of course we didn't hit a million wineries, but we got to actually enjoy some great wine with great friends...with kids! Of course a stop at the park was a necessity. We're definitely feeling more confident about taking the kids pretty much..anywhere! And to top it off, we were actually able to get all 3 kids to sleep and enjoy some adult time!

Dennis the Menace

Is that the orneriest face or what?! Our little angel is become quite a little....BOY. So far, in his 10 short months of life he has managed to make his swing come crashing down on him, knock down and break a floor lamp, bash his nose on the wood floors and resulting in a bloody nose, call the fire department on my cell phone, hit his lip on my knee resulting in a bloody lip and constantly tear down his video monitor.

Um....girls don't do this type of thing as far as I know! Just little BOYS! We've ceased calling him our angel and now his just Dennis the Menace!!! Mommy's little Menace II Society!
