This morning I showed up at Anne Welsh, a really great salon in Del Ray, our beautiful neighborhood in Alexandria. As it turns out, Joan cut off 14 inches!!! What do you think?

We spent the day with great friends, Melissa and James, in the wine country of Virginia visiting the following wineries: Chrysalis, Swedenburg and Piedmont. We tasted some incredible wines, but the winner for me was Sarah's Patio Red at Chrysalis. We all shared a bottle of this chilled semi-sweet red over a lovely picnic next to a pond and rolling green hills. I was reminded what a gorgeous state we live in!
Even Henry tried a few and settled on a lovely white.
We spent some time at each winery, appreciating the different wines and atmospheres. Swedenburg even had a Mothers' Day chocolate fountain!

I'm still not sure if food was a hit with him.
Curiously, I have this photo of Charlie when she first started with solids:Goodness, they look alike, don't they?
Okay, so I may have turned Charlie into a tree-hugger, or at least a flower hugger. I've explained to her that plants grow better when they are loved, so she's been talking to them every day and occasionally giving them kisses. Honestly, they are the best growing, most beautiful flowers I've planted here thus far!Yesterday after I'd taken the pics of the kids, I downloaded them, and then I noticed that I'd downloaded a few that I didn't remember taking. Apparently, Henry had conned Charlie into a little photo shoot!
