The entire Krutz clan got to head to California to celebrate Granddad Krutz's 60th Birthday. We made our first stop in San Francisco. There we got to go up to wine country during the day and taste some really good wines. Barron enjoyed the big city a lot more than I thought he would. He LOVED all of the cars, buses, and fire trucks that were constantly going by. I forgot to take my camera with me the entire time we were in San Francisco. I got one iphone pic of Barron and I while out shopping...
We then headed south to Carmel to the Pebble Beach Food and Wine Event. Patrick's wine, Krutz Family Cellars, was poured at the event. While there, Bryan got to play for his first time at Pebble Beach. We met the men on the 18th hole to bring them some champagne.
Barron could not stay away once he saw his Dad, and ran out there to finish the hole with them.
We then had to find some wine to finish our day with. Barron and Patrick enjoyed running around and playing.
Barron is very affectionate and continued to try to kiss or hug on Patrick. Patrick refused to let Barron do it and I think even got annoyed with him. Here is Barron going in for a kiss...
Since we were in Carmel we had to make a stop at the Cheese Shop. The Cheese Shop is the reason all of the Krutz boys are in the wine business. It is a lot of fun to hang out there (even for the little ones).
After getting a bunch of cheese and wine we headed to some rocks on 17 mile drive. Saying it was cold is an understatement!
On Sunday, we hung out at Spanish Bay. Every afternoon a bag piper walks up playing. It is fun to listen to and let the kids run free.
We gave Barron a Pebble Beach hat for his birthday. He has started to love a baseball hat so he was proud to wear his around. We had trouble getting him to take it off.
That night for Barron's birthday we all went to dinner. We learned quickly that the boys did better at the table when they were sitting together.
It would only be fitting for Barron's cake to be mis-spelled again. Either Barron is hard to spell or I am hard to understand (and I believe I know which one my Dad would say). Maybe one day we will get Barron's cake right!
It was a wonderful week celebrating with family. I wish we were together more often!
