Today is the last day of vacation. We arrived home yesterday afternoon and are using today to catch up on laundry, play with Baxter (who is quite glad to be back home from the kennel!), and shop for groceries. I'm hoping to make it to the Tiny Town library, too. Then tomorrow, we're back to work.
This year's vacation was in the Sioux Falls area of South Dakota. Strange destination? Maybe. More on why we chose this destination tomorrow.
This vacation included some of our favorite things: Water or in this case--Waterfalls! Hmmm...you think there is a reason that they call it Sioux Falls?!
A favorite vacation stop that has become a tradition is a tour of wineries. South Dakota has a series of wineries that they promote as a wine tour. We hit several of them. My favorite?
The Strawbale Winery! Besides the fact that the winery building is actually built out of straw bales, they had all different kinds of wine besides the traditional: cherry, currant, strawberry rhubarb, and jalapeno. Yep, jalapeno! And you can bet, that we couldn't leave without a bottle of jalapeno wine for the Mr. (Not my favorite.)
More on the vacation trip tomorrow. Today? Reading, reviewing Baxter's obedience training, and catching up around the house. If it doesn't rain, we might even get the lawn work done! And I'm thinking there is a bottle of wine calling my name!
