Birthdays continue to give even after the day is over…my man planned a picnic in the park for later in the week (yes I know my birthday was a month ago but I am finally getting around to this post!)
It was a simple picnic but very pleasant…we enjoyed some wine and snacks. We put crab dip over goat cheese on a cracker..it was so delicious!
Typically, I don’t post much about wine but this was a tasty red wine. My man picked it out…well probably a liquor store worker ;) but we will give him credit.
As you can see, the wine is called Freak Show and has a very active label. It was kind of perfect he got this wine because during this time I was reading Water for Elephants. For those that don’t know this book it is all about the life of someone who spent many years with a circus.
Washington Park in Denver, Colorado is where I spend many days…usually playing volleyball and hanging out with friends. It is a very active park with runners, bikers, skaters, and lots of people playing volleyball, basketball, tennis, soccer, or Frisbee.
This evening, though, we just relaxed, sipped our wine and watched others be active ;)
