Musings on a day out...

Saturday is the one day of the week I can sleep in and do what I like.  I don't like to have anything regularly scheduled as I often like to take day trips.  Especially with my family.  This past Saturday Mom, Dad, and I went to Shelton Vineyards for the Fall Festival.   It was a wonderful day! 
(this group looked like they were festivaled out)
A lot of vendors were set up outside. 
The light was beautiful.
 They had bands playing a variety of music. 
Dog was enjoying the music.
 Wine tasting was free.  Wine was flowing.  Especially at our chairs.  I had the Riesling and Mom and Dad their basic white. 
Dad like this last band.
Wonder what event he keeps collecting cards for?
 The weather was perfect. 

Mom was super relaxed and loving it.
Friends of ours called the Wood and Potter had a tent.  I finally bought a scarf pin from Mr Wood for my new two sided voile scarf I had sewn that morning.

  I always love everything Mrs Potter does too.  On the way home Mom insisted we stop for ice cream at Alex's in Lewisville.  We couldn't persuade her not to.  Dad and I had root beer floats.  They let us have extra root beer!  Mom had a hot fudge Sunday!  It was a really wonderful day!
Wouldn't this picture make a great pictorial quilt wall hanging.
Or this one in a more abstract way?

This little girl twirling around kind of summed up the day and how the music felt in the wonderfully fresh air.

Keep dreaming...Colleen
