Butterflies, Ice Cream, and Wine

Sundays are my favorite.  They usually include church and something fun as a family.

Today we wanted to go somewhere but really weren't sure where to go. So we decided to load up the car, get some Starbucks, and just start driving.  We started driving back roads south of Elk Grove and wound up at Consumes River Preserve.  We hiked, admired butterflies, oohed and ahhed over bunnies and birds, and followed maps that the kids thought led us to treasure.







After our hike (wasn't even a mile) we loaded back in the car and meandered over to Walnut Grove.  We have a thing for the cute towns near the Delta.  Quaint, cultural, and fun.  We were excited see a new spot for lunch and had to try it out. 


Kid approved even. 


What hot Sunday afternoon would be complete without a scoop of ice cream?













After sticky fingers and hands were wiped we headed to Locke, the town just a few blocks up.  The kids scored with two FREE items from an antique store. 

Meet Sally.



I told Makenna if she could take care of Sally well, she just may be able to get an American Girl doll.  Right now Sally is cozy in bed with Makenna.


Weston and Landon were given a convertible car.  They did a pretty good job taking turns sharing it.   



Our day ended at Miner's Leap in Clarksburg with a glass of wine for us and popcorn for the kids. 




The flower that Weston plucked off the rose bush at the winery.  Nice. 



Today was awesome.  Loved that it was unplanned.  Sometimes unplanned outings are the best. No expectations to be let down about.
