Michelle, Derek's sister, turned the big 40!!! To celebrate Michelle wanted all of her siblings to head down south to the Stone Brewing Company. http://www.stonebrewing.com/home.asp?cmbmonth=4&cmbyear=1980&x=72&y=17. And they all did!! They even let their significant others tag along too. Above is a picture of Michelle and her boyfriend, James.
**not the best picture, but I am happy I had an actual camera in my purse!**
I was very excited to leave my kids with my mom & Brian for the weekend and get out of dodge for a bit! The brewery is AWESOME! If you love a fun atmosphere and good drink go THERE! Suzie and Dale had been there before, but I am pretty sure it was the first time for the rest of us. Well, after about 7 hours there..we knew the place pretty well!! The place is huge. It has ponds and trails, lots of rocks, candles, flowers, plants, food and well......BEER! If you do not like beer have no fear they have wine and champagne. By the time a friend of the family showed b up, Dickey, the party was in full swing.
Then people got silly. Posing really out of it, but really we were not this bad.
After a great night we all headed back to our hotel rooms. Well, Dwayne/Elisa, Derek/myself kept the party going in their room for a bit. Needless to say, I woke up needing a 'little hair of the dog!' So back to the brewery we went! We met up with Dwayne and Elisa for some brunch. Then we headed up north to San Clmente for my side of the family *family day.
