Oh, Carmel by the Sea… even on the coldest of days in the middle of summer, you are still just stunning…

Our friends, Grace & Casey, were such great hosts.  They took us to this beautiful vineyard called Paraiso to start our “Week of Wine” off with a bang!  The pictures do not do it justice, this place had some incredible views.  Oh, and we made a new fur-friend, JD!  As long as he wasn’t slobbering all over our wine glasses, or chewing on the cow hide rug, or biting people as the came through the door… he was quite adorable. ;)

**If you are in the Monterey area, we highly recommend having brunch at this truly unique spot called 1833.  The chicken and waffles were killer!**

And I want to take a moment to give a much deserved “Thanks” to the entire Merritt family for being so welcoming and hospitable.  Playing with all the kiddos and enjoying family time with you guys is always such a treat.  We can’t wait to visit again!  Here are some photos of their sweet family:
