In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Saturday...Celebrating Vickie's Birthday

On Saturday, Vickie (cousin), Theresa (sister) and I went out to celebrate Vickie's birthday.  Remember I told you a few posts back we celebrated a few birthdays?  Well, Vickie's birthday was May 4, but we haven't been able to get together until Saturday.  And we were going to Indianapolis to the Vintage Wine and Food festival, but storms were predicted.  We decided to opt out and let Theresa plan our day.  She did a great job, as always.

First stop, Peace Water winery in Carmel.  This place was a little pricey, but I loved the decor, it was very groovy.  And, when you buy a bottle of wine, a portion of the proceeds go to an organization that you pick from eight choices, that were previously picked from their eight children.  Got that?  Ok...just know it goes to a good cause.
One warning though, they do not have sweet wines.  Suited me just fine!  Their decor...

After that, we went to a place in Indy, near Broadripple (I think) called Goose the Market.  I know, weird name, but very cool place.  They have meats and cheese for sale.  But don't stay upstairs....
Go down to the basement.  Vickie, does not like dry wines, which is all they had for sale.  So she chose water.
This place was too cool.
$12.00 for this cheese, bread, nut tray.  It was delish.

After this we went to Easley winery and took a tour.

more storage.....
bottling area.....
tasting area.....only $5.00 which included a tour and a pen....however...they only had sweet wines here...which are not really my cup of tea...or wine...but Vickie loved them!
Fun play area!

After Easley we went to PF Changs for dinner....then we went to Mass Ave area in downtown Indy
More fun....get it.....we are the "I" in Indy!  Theresa....
THEN!!!!!  I know...more food.....we went to Sub Zero ice cream place for some home made style ice cream!

Twas a fun day and we made a good choice because....
there were some torrential downpours that day.  The Food and Wine festival was outside.  Great planning and a fun day!  This cloud was waiting for us on the way home!!!!
