Road trip #2

We just got back from Jake's second road trip. We went to Ripon to visit Grant's best friend Scott, his wife Erin, and their daughter Taylor (7 months). It's about an hour south of Sacramento.

We arrived Friday night and just relaxed. Saturday we planned to take a trip to Lodi to do a little wine tasting. Lodi is about 20 minutes from their house so it was a perfect day trip. Sunday after breakfast, Erin and I  went shopping while the boys went to the park with the kids. That evening we ordered sushi and played cards games. It was a fun weekend. We ate, drank, and laughed. Exactly what Grant and I needed. Jake just adored Taylor. They are exactly one month apart. They ate together, played together, and even took baths with each other. It's fun having the kids so close in age. We can really identify with each other.

I wish they lived closer so we could do more together! Guess this means more trips planned!

Here are some pictures of our trip:
I actually LOVE driving.  So, I drove the whole way.
G's turn... He drove to the wineries. ;)
Jake slept the majority of the car ride.

His arm was around Taylor. Too funny!
Kinda blurry... but,  it shows how much fun they were having!
