Bouchon in Yountville. My cousin works at Bouchon, so I was excited to see him and have dinner with him and his lovely girlfriend. As everyone ate seafood and some more adventurous items, I snacked on bread and butter (and wine). Reminded me of the French butter we had on our honeymoon in Bora Bora! Delicious!
Jessup Cellars next in Yountville. We had a private tasting set up by my cousin's girlfriend. I have never had wine at 11:00 a.m. in my life, but it was fun! The pairing came with some yummy cheese and dark chocolate. Next up we headed to lunch at Mustard's Grill. Jason and I split a burger and a salad. Literally everything we ate on this trip was soooooo good.
Auberge Du Soleil.
I had looked into staying at this hotel, as it is related to our L'Auberge in Del Mar. A bit pricey, we opted for the Marriott since we'd be out and about so much. We decided to go get some coffee and dessert on their terrace. What an amazing view! I think next time we go to Napa we may have to splurge and stay here!
James Cole Winery, where my cousin's girlfriend works. We then headed back to Yountville, where Jason surprised me with an impromptu couples massage appointment he had made! It was so relaxing and a great way to unwind! That was our first couples massage since our honeymoon!
That night, we went to Press in St. Helena for dinner. This restaurant was totally Jason and my styles. We had a lovely time and a fabulous meal.
Model Bakery, which we heard had the world's best english muffins. We both got the breakfast sandwich and coffee. It was a nice, light, breakfast after all the eating we had done the day before! They really were so good we got a bunch to go.
We made one last stop at Bouchon Bakery to stock up on some goodies for my parents and the kids. Bouchon was having their annual Bastille Day celebration, so we stopped there and said goodbye to my cousin. Wished we could've stayed longer for the festivities!
We finally made it home on Saturday night to see my two babes. We got lots of hugs and kisses. We had such a fun trip and 2 1/2 days was just perfect for us. Can't wait to go back!
