TL and I are not afraid of going places with the kids... the adventure is always a little more hectic, but the memories are always worth it. Every once in a while (and when we can make it work) it is so nice to do a getaway for just the two of us. I am so unbelievably grateful that my parents are so amazing and want to watch our babies for us to go - and trust me, the kids don't miss us when they're with Gramz and Pops.
We just went for one night, but it was very nice. It was my first time leaving the kids overnight - and it was much harder for me than them. TL and I took the 1.5 hour drive to Napa and left late morning. We arrived to our hotel The Westin Verasa Napa before lunch, checked in, and then took the short walk over to Oxbow Market. Oxbow market is really neat - lots of different places to eat and shop. The Westin is a great place to stay - walking distance to the downtown area!
While we were there, we also spent some time with a cocktail by the pool, and went to a few different restaurants and bars. We ate dinner at Tra Vigne in Saint Helena (one of the first places we ever ate together in Napa - try the mozzarella if you go... ahhh-mazing!) The next day, we woke up late after sleeping through the night (a huge treat for me!), went to breakfast and visited a winery in the Carneros region of Napa. We have never visited this area of Napa, and we have been there several times. After a tasting at Saintsbury (an adorable winery) we had lunch at the Fremont Diner before hitting the road and heading back to our babes.
We had so much fun just catching up, talking, and spending some quality time together. Sometimes life feels like its moving so fast it can all be a blur, and this time was definitely needed to slow down with my love.
