Stompin of the Grapes!

Views around Beckers Vinyard and Winery!

Yesterday, (Saturday) we wanted to do something for Labor Day Weekend. Of course, we had many choices on the table as we were trying to make our Labor Day plans. First choice was to head down to Corpus and sit on the beach for the weekend but we decided not to. Then we thought a day trip to Galveston because we had never been there.(we are try in to do things we haven't done yet) but a Tropical Storm Lee is brewing and said it might hit the Texas Golf Coast so no beach for us! So the other things on our list were, Six Flags, Comal River Inner Tubing, The Stomp in of the Grapes in The Texas Hill Wine Country, and of course Musicfest at Cowboys Dancehall to see the Eli Young Band.
Sami, Hannah and Elijah and Me Stompin in the Grapes!
So Saturday as we drove we seen that Six Flags was PACKED!!! Even the overflow parking lot was packed. It was a 104 out at 1pm so we were differently not fighting crowds and heat and headed to the Hill Country to Beckers Winery and did the stomp in of the grapes and had a good time. Well most of us did. Ethan not so much. We got in the vats of grapes and stomped on them and bought tshirts and put our foot prints on the back of them and walked around the grounds and toured the winery and of course Jay and I took a wine tasting tour!!! Tonight all of our family for the music fest are heading to the concert and of course along with our family comes along a lot of Sami's friends... The girls from the JV and Varsity Volleyball Team are loading up cars and coming out. I guess we are the parent supervisors! Which is fine with us. We will have a great time. Plus we have Uncle Jay and Coach Samantha coming along with us to help! Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone! Tomorrow we are staying home and BBQing and getting ready for a new week to start.... can't believe our next break will be Thanksgiving!!! Welcome Fall!
