Week of Fun with Family

23 August-30 August 2014

We are enjoying our stay with Hope, Shawn and grandsons Colt and Cade. This past week has been filled with horses Rocky and Katy,morning of Putt Putt with the grandsons and grape stomping at Maragas Winery.  Auto Body Concepts in Bend did a great job in repairing the headlight on the Malibu that was damaged by a fish carrying Eagle. The fish did the damage when the eagle dropped it. Also did some repairs on tow mechanism and just other daily chores. Boys start school on 2nd. Could not believe all the supplies required. Seems when I was in school..only a notebook, paper and pencils to be added during school year as needed.

Shawn saddled up the horses for boys to ride. Cade especially enjoys this and wants another horse. I want to ride Katy before we leave. Have been spoiling them with carrots.

Cade gave Diggie a bath. Think they are going to keep her and maybe she will have some piggies.

Oreo is pregnant and due in December. They now have 4 heifers.

Took Colt and Cade to the Putt Putt in Bend..played 18 holes and must admit they did better than Papa and Nana. It was fun and we may go back again. The Sun Mountain Fun Center features bowling,go karts,bumper cars and games Great place to take kids.

On Saturday, Hope,grandsons and I went to the Maragas Winery for grape stomping. The Maragas family has been in the wine making business for generations starting in Crete and in the USA 1941. The winery is located on Hwy 97 between Redmond and Madras in Culver and is the first winery in Jefferson County Oregon. Hope and I had a glass of 2012 Malbec made with Applegate Valley fruit.
The wines range in price from $18 to $45. Check them out on google. maragaswinery.com

  1. Love hearing about your family's farm. Those grandkids are growing up the right way. When I was young I always wanted a horse. Of course, no one in our family had ever had horses! That winery has the right idea for bringing in tourists. Wine stomping! Who wouldn't want to recreate Lucy's wine stomping!
