A surprise?? Not so much...

We celebrated Big Papa's birthday the weekend before, by taking a trip to Santa Barbara, but the fun did not end there.  The celebration continued with friends and family back at home.  Even though he wasn't surprised like we had hoped, I am pretty sure he felt the love.  :)  (He is too smart!!)
Happy Birthday Bill!  Cheers to 60 more!  ;)  We sure love you!!

Cousins and sweet friends!  I love it!

Big Papa's 60th!

We got to enjoy a weekend in Santa Barbara with Blake's family celebrating his dad's birthday!Thank you Bill and Linda for such a wonderful time together.  There is nothing better than being with family.  Happy 60th Birthday, Big Papa!!

 Enjoying some gelato!
 READY for wine tasting!!!  :)
 Our highlight of our wine tasting was in the beautiful, adorable city of Los Olivos.  

Our last morning at the hotel we walked across the street and enjoyed a little beach time.   Aubrey had been asking all weekend, so we were glad we snuck it in right before it was time to go.
 Ready to go for a little more wine tours and some sight seeing of beautiful polo fields.
 The best Mimi ever!
Thank you for including us in all the birthday fun too!

Carmel fun continued...

One of our last days together we went to a pumpkin patch together as a family.  
We took some cute pictures,
went through the corn maze multiple times,

and enjoyed some family fun.

Here are some other highlights from our week together...

 Making caramel popcorn together

The week came to an end too quickly!!  
Can't wait for our next trip together.  
Maybe it is time to start planning.  :-)
