I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

A Great Weekend!

We had such a wonderful time with our daughter Stephanie and son in law Randy this weekend in Wilsonville, OR.  

We enjoyed our tour of the Domaine Drouhin Winery, which was about 45 minutes from our kid's apartment and the views were unbelievable, as you can see below. We enjoyed some wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs, and even though Tracy doesn't normally drink alcohol, she enjoyed a few sips as well.

Wouldn't mind having one of these at home

Our surroundings in Oregon were so different from the desert we left and I couldn't stop taking pictures of the beautiful green trees and colorful plants.  

Our flights were on time and smooth and I was even able to take advantage of my US Airways Preferred Status to bring some wine home at no extra charge.

So we are back in the swing of things and it is great to be starting my week off on Tuesday rather than Monday. Thanks for the visit and I hope that your weekend was great as well!


  1. While you were north I passed through Tucson, sorry you weren't at home.

  2. How could you not enjoy the great weekend with daughter and SIL. To top it off, hanging out at wineries is a pretty darned fun thing to do too!

    Sure looked like everyone was happy....and I don't mean just because of the wine. Nice!

  3. What a wonderful weekend with family, great weather and good wine!

  4. We'll be passing through Wilsonville tomorrow. We're about 20 minutes from there.

  5. Great looking weekend with your family! Glad the weather was good for you in Oregon!

  6. We camped at a winery in Oregon and it was nestled right in the mountains - so beautiful. Glad you had such a great time and sorry about the heat to welcome you home.

  7. Shoeless Joe - Sorry we missed you. We did have a great weekend and thanks for all of the positive comments. BJ - Please blow the horn as you pass by Wilsonville and safe travels.

  8. What a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. Beautiful country.

  9. Yup, we went wine tasting today too...in Amador Valley, near Sacramento. We'll have to look up the Oregon wines :)

  10. Oregon has some fantastic wineries. Their wines rival German wines.
