A group of our friends got together and made a day trip to Napa, specifically the Calistoga area. It was a gorgeously perfect day full of beautiful scenery, great food, bocce ball, and of course, lots of fun with friends.
I have to stop and talk about the photo above. This dog seemed to know that it was picture time, because as soon as we all lined up for a group photo, she came up and promptly exposed all her three-legged glory for us and the rest of the world. That's probably why we're all laughing in the picture.
The following photos fulfill my promise to post pictures of certain individuals on my blog. =)
"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it."
-- Mother Teresa
