i have already tried (and love) the merlot, cabernet sauvingon and red zinfandel. so i tasted 5 completely different wines last night (don't worry you only get a few sips of each):
- syrah-really good
- barbera-very interesting, peppery and spicy, never had anything like it
- vintner's reserve-a blend of several different red oak wines, dry and amazing (my fav!)
- sauvingon blanc-a very fruity bouquet and very tasty
- chardonnay-i'm not a big chardonnay fan to begin with so i wasn't a huge fan of this one

playin' with grampie in the yardbest.toy.ever
to top everything off we went over to shelburne farms in stow today to go apple picking. not only do they have the best apples but they allow doggies in the orchard on a leash! and to make things even better we got to visit with my good bud from work, mali, and her golden puppy baron! again i somehow decided to leave my camera in the car but they seemed to get along great and foster was of course a celebrity at the orchard!
what fun lies in store tomorrow with daddy being home for the holiday??? we'll see......

he loves his sticks. look at the size of those paws!
on the way back dave tried to get foster to go into the water. he was throwing sticks into a shallow part of the river. foster was meandering at the edge but wouldn't swim in. then he decided to climb up on a wet rock sticking out of the water and he slipped and fell in! he went completely underwater nose first! it was hilarious! he held on to the rock and whimpered for a sec than swam around it back to the shore. of course i didn't take any pics b/c i was practically diving in to help him! i did take this one pic of him all wet and scared afterwards.
if that's not happiness i don't know what is...

then on to auntie carrie's house to meet matthew and patrick!
matthew is not so sure about this guy
final stop of the day on saturday was to dave & michelle's to meet the whole NH/UConn crew and the silver fox himself-steely!!! steely is a 5 month old silver lab. silver you ask? i guess there's a recessive gene in chocolates so they sometimes come out silver.
he was a little scared at first and sticking close to mommy
believe it or not this is steely & foster playing nice! after some bum sniffing everyone seemed to get along great!
after what was probably the most exciting day of his short 11 week life so far, foster crashed big time and slept ~8hrs!
marisa & rick will be welcoming their own baby girl in just a few weeks! can't wait to meet her!ok, gotta run so i can hopefully watch the sox wrap up the NLDS series tonight. GO SOX!!!!
