Family Fun at Mondavi Winery & the Calistoga Tractor Parade

Last weekend we went to a couple fun holiday events here in the Napa Valley.  We started out at Robert Mondavi Winery for their holiday kick off celebration. This was a family friendly event.... however there were a lot of people there without kids also. It was super fun and on my calendar for next year.  It was free for kids 12 and under and if you brought a food donation for the food bank then you got in free.... which we did.  Otherwise it was 25$ a person.

Scarlette looking so  big in front of the vines.

Each adult got a wine glass to take home... the best part was that we got to taste the whole time we were there... included in admission:)  There was yummy cheese, meats and bread to snack on and cookies for the kids. Santa was there and they had a tree lighting.

On our way out... Graham and Scarlette being silly.

The big girls both had plans so it was just us and the littles...  so weird to be a little family of four again:(

We headed up to Calistoga for the 3rd year in a row for the lighted tractor parade... which is a fun parade... there is even a hot air balloon basket that shoots a flame in the air... and lots of huge tractors and vineyard equipment.  

The Feigel's met us at the parade

Graham and Karson anxiously waiting for the parade to start

I have been crafting a bit  and a HAIR before and after coming up soon... and the Vintage trailer... So much to blog about so little time.
