Bob at 41

So Bob isn’t quite 41 yet, but he is very close. In honor of his upcoming birthday, I took him on an overnight trip last weekend to Hammondsport, NY, to celebrate him. I was able to steal him away thanks to some amazing coordination from my neighbor Sara and my sister-in-law Jen. Jen even made the kids clean the house while we were gone!

I took Bob to his favorite winery, Dr. Frank’s, for a food and wine experience. This was fancy, and it felt really special. We tasted a mystery wine, guessed what it was (we were wrong!), had a tour, tasted wine out of the barrel, tasted wine and ate grapes in the vineyard, and returned to the 1886 house for a small tasting menu and more wine tasting.

The Finger Lakes are pretty.

After the winery, we went to our new property and chatted with the neighbor awhile, who seems very nice. We walked around the field together and talked about the future.

Our land!

Later, we visited a nearby brewery that Bob has been wanting to try, Broken Dreams Brewery.

We checked into our hotel (the Park Inn, very lovely) and got settled in, before making our way to dinner downstairs.

In the morning, we had breakfast at the Crooked Lake Ice Cream parlor (which also serves coffee and breakfast), and walked down to Keuka Lake. It was so great to spend time just with Bob and to treat him for his special day!
