in a perfect world of yancies: Births, Birds, and More Births!

Births, Birds, and More Births!

Emily having lunch
As you might have seen on Twitter, we spent Emily's birthday out at the Chateau Ste Michelle winery. It's really nice there--and the tour is free, as are the tour tastings! They also sell picnic-y foods, and have lovely grounds for picnicking...

We even saw this bird.
So, you know, that was cool.

Did I get a flat tire? Yes, but at least that was after we'd safely completed the 22-mile ride to the winery. Did we have to walk a mile in the hot sun to find a bus stop to get home? Again, yes, but fortunately we didn't know any of that when we were enjoying the food and wine.

Turns out, though, that Emily isn't the only one with a July 10th birthday. Congratulations to Ismail & Kari on the birth of their daughter!

In bonus celebration coverage, I recently discovered that Deron & Haley had an online set of engagement photos. Not bad. There seems to one preview shot from the wedding up (scroll down a bit after jump)... Hopefully more will be up soon!

Finally, here's some random video fun I heard about on a Times blog the other day. Enjoy:
