We spent the last couple of days in Yountville CA, where the kids got to see the wine country up close and personal, and Selina and I got to enjoy some R&R. Even though the Wine Country is only an hour away, it was nice to stay someplace other than home. Selina booked 2 nights at the Villagio Inn & Spa, where she enjoyed a relaxing spa treatment while I got to watch the kids. When we go to Napa, we always end up going to the outlet stores, so this was the first time I really got to 'see' Napa. It really is a gorgeous place.
Right outside Villagio, they had their own little vineyard.
The kids enjoyed all the water around the inn.
Our room was right next to the pool.
Kristin got to try on her new goggles.
Kaylas cheeks were too big to fit in the goggles.
When I asked Kristin what her favorite part of the trip was, she replied enthusiastically "SWIMMING!"
Kayla enjoyed the outdoor shower.
Kristin enjoyed the foot washing basin thing they had. I need one of these things at our house.
There weren't many kid friendly things to do in Napa, so we asked the Concierge for suggestions. They told us about Sterling Vineyards which had a gondola ride and a factory tour. While the kids didn't really care for the tour, they definitely liked the ride.
Afterwards, we went to Castello di Amorosa, which was a castle/vineyard straight out of the movies. Apparently Disney filmed a portion of Bedtime Stories there.
