Good Friends, Good Times

Our good friends, Robin and Jim, came down from Kansas to visit us a few weeks ago.  The guys played golf one day in our awful heat, while Robin and I floated in the pool, but the other full day of their visit we decided to go to a local vineyard for their grape stomp and harvest.

{I wonder if they planned to wear blue together ~ looks great!}

Jim was the only one of us brave enough to stick his feet in the grapes ~  ewww.

Makes me wonder if I really want to drink the wine after seeing this?!?

That little dishpan doesn't look like it will do the job to clean his feet ~ but luckily there was a BIG hose nearby.

Look what the Texas drought and heat has done to the grapes.  Turned them into raisins right on the vine!!

This little patch must have been near the sprinkler!

We had so much fun visiting with our old friends, although Robin and I did the gabbing, and the guys did this!

Dueling laptops!!

We had such a good visit ~ planning a weekend getaway in October to the Greenbrier ~ and beginning plans for a cruise to celebrate our joint 35th wedding anniversaries in 2012.  

Fun times ahead!!

The cruise is going to be so much fun - and your visit with Robin and Jim looked like a blast as well! The picture of Jim and Dad with the computers was so funny!!

There's nothing much better than a good time with old friends. I guess the one perk of living away from them is the appreciation of what time we do get together.

And... I would have done the grape stomp just to say that I did it. Too bad it doesn't look large enough to leap around like Lucy.

Hi Sue!
So nice to spend time with old friends.
That is so cute that they had very coordinated outfits on!
Can't imagine drinking wine from purple stained footsies either!!!
Does look like fun though.
Nice to see your smiling face this evening!
How are the little ones liking school?

Thanks so much for the tip, Sue!
I googled that company and added napkin rings and waalaa.... there they were!
Unfortunately, the images linked to Etsy and Ebay and the items have since sold BUT.... at least now I know what I am looking for!
Thanks so much!

Have fun at the Greenbrier... love it there.
My friend/sorority sister go married there many years ago, What a memory THAT was for me!

I've always wanted to go to The Greenbrier. My husband has been to play golf. Maybe for our 35th!
