Napa, California: Another beautiful sunny day in Napa. DT circled around a grassy field in the fairgrounds and I ran into town to jog along the paved Napa River Trail.
The boys golfed today, so Mary and I had the day to shop, enjoy a leisurely lunch and gather the ingredients for our tailgate party tomorrow at Stanford University.
Our first stop was back to the Oxbow Public Market. We had perfect chicken tacos from C Casa and were able to eat outside on the market's patio. Really a treat in November.We shopped at Whole Spice, Kara's Cupcakes and The Olive Press.
And now this author will take a pause before the following food photos to post a photo of a certain little fellow on a playground (wearing strange giant plastic glasses) in Los Angeles: Always having fun and always smiling - that's Little Leo. Leo is now 2 years, 3 months old.
Mary and I went to a massive (pretty fancy) Raley's supermarket to purchase tailgate supplies. This store is about the size of a football field. I clocked 3000 steps on my pedometer gathering the items on our list! This store also has 30% off bottles of alcohol if you buy 6. This discount makes a bottle of Jack Daniels around $14. Let's just say our liquor cabinets are now well-stocked. After returning to the RV's, we prepped the foods for the party tomorrow.
After the guys returned we went to dinner at Gott's Roadside in Napa - a chain of three burger joints - for dinner.Cute buzzer
