One of my favorite things about this time of year is how beautiful the warm evening light is outside. It is calming in a time of chaos.
These pictures are from a family bike ride yesterday.
We are picking grapes daily now, so except for dinner, family time is virtually nonexistent. As farmers, we work everyday for much of the year, but definitely everyday during harvest (which lasts for at least 2 months!). We try to bring the kids into the business to spend time together and to teach them about what we do for a living. Riding our bikes to check grapevines, assess ripeness, and get some exercise while working is a good way to spend time with the girls during a busy time of year…
…And to take in the beauty of where we live…And to appreciate it.
