Weekend Recap 12/15/18

Last weekend we continued our Christmas celebrations! On Friday, the school I work for hosted a Christmas event for students, families, staff, etc. They had Santa and Mrs. Claus, a bounce house, snacks and hot chocolate, and all kinds of kids games. Liam enjoyed a few of the activities, and he was looking so cute in his little Christmas sweater.

Liam loved Mrs. Claus' glasses
He wasn't too sure about sitting on Santa's lap

The goal was to throw the hoola hoop around the stockings, but he just liked listening to it rattle.

On Saturday, my mom came over and watched Liam for us. Lee and I picked up our friends Derrick and Kelli, and headed to Louisville, KY for the day. We stopped at a winery on the way and did a wine tasting. After the wine tasting, (I switched to water so I could drive), and we ate some salami, Gouda, and pretzels and the rest of the gang had another glass of wine. I definitely want to come back in the fall, because they have a nice deck with tables and chairs that overlooks a pretty treeline that would be extra pretty when the leaves change.

After the winery, we went to Lights Under Louisville, which I definitely recommend. Lee and I have gone here 3 times now for the lights (and 2x zip lining) and it is a great light display! Its an old limestone mine, and you get to drive through the cave to see the lights. It is about a 25 minute experience. You definitely want to plan your timing, because on the weekends there's a nice wait to get into the cave. I think we waited just under an hour, but we didn't mind because we were catching up with friends.
A few pics of the lights we saw!
This ice skating rink made of lights was my fav!

Before heading home, we stopped for dinner at Monnik. This was our first time eating here, and we really enjoyed it! I didn't take any pics of our food, but we had the truffle fries as an appetizer, and Lee ordered a burger, and I had the Pub-Style Chicken Curry. It was not too spicy, but rather a little sweet. A unique choice for me, and I was glad I stepped out of my usual box.

Heading to dinner!

Of course we stopped at Starbucks before heading home, and I enjoyed my favorite Starbucks drink, Caramel Brulee Latte. The coffee + company kept me awake while driving home.

Sunday we went to our nieces' church dedication, and had some Red Lobster for lunch. We spent the rest of the day cleaning up the house and playing with our sweet Liam.
We had to take a pic of our food and send it to my dad, who loves Red Lobster, but wasn't with us for lunch. 

It was a fun weekend with a perfect mix of friend/family time, and lots of holiday fun.
