Last weekend our family went up to the Russian River Valley to celebrate a late Father's Day / Early Birthday weekend for my Husband and stayed at a hotel in Healdsburg. The weather was perfect for swimming, swimming and more swimming, the life of a toddler! My husband and I booked a sitter for Mario Saturday night, and had a wonderful date at Gary Farrell Vineyards & Winery, and enjoyed their "Table for Twelve" : a dinner with wine pairing that was amazing and which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Besides me and my husband's dinner date, our family had brunch and dinner the following day at our new favorite spot in Healdsburg, SHED, a market, cafe and community gathering space designed to bring us closer to the way we grow, prepare, and share food--we LOVE it there! We also spent a lot of time at the hotel relaxing, watching the World Cup, and of course swimming in the pool- which is Mario's most-recent favorite thing to do while on vacation. It was in my opinion a perfect weekend get away.
