Somehow we missed the advertising for this fun event that shut down most of  Main St. in the Gundo. Parking was a bit of a drag, but it was well worth it to get to see all the awesome classic cars and enjoy the music and fun with my kiddos and hubby. If you find yourself in the South Bay, take a quick detour off PCH and swing through the Gundo. Even if there isn't a fun carnival or street festivity, there are plenty of restaurants, shops, parks, and even a brewery to delight you for a couple of hours.

Tasting Fall in Wine Country

L'Aventure Tasting_4 L'Aventure Tasting_1 L'Aventure Tasting_2 L'Aventure Tasting_3 L'Aventure Tasting_5 L'Aventure Tasting_6 We got our first taste of fall recently. I thought I wasn't ready to let go of long summer days, but now I find myself craving all things fall. I want to go apple picking, carve pumpkins, wrap myself in plaid throws, and sip apple cider in front of a fire. The white blazer is a staple in my wardrobe. No matter how sloppy I feel, I know I can throw it on with jeans and a pair of heels and my day will instantly become brighter. I don't buy into the whole no white after Labor Day rule, so you can be sure to see this many more times as summer fades and fall really gets underway. Jacket: J.

Summer Blues

Summer Blues_7 Summer Blues_8 Summer Blues_6 Summer Blues_1 Summer Blues_3 Summer Blues_5 Summer Blues_9 Summer Blues_2 Summer Blues_4Summer blues: blue eyes, boat shoes, denim, and gingham are a sure win look for any summer activity. It is especially excellent for running through grape vines with a toddler, cuddling with a sleeping infant in the children's museum, and sipping on a glass of fantastic GSM while the rest of the clan is asleep. If find yourself in Paso Robles with little ones, the Children's Museum is must-do activity - as is the newly installed kids' play area at the park downtown. After the kiddos are sufficiently exhausted, head to one of the excellent local wineries or breweries, taste, purchase a bottle (or 3), and enjoy an hour plus of quiet bliss sipping on your beverage of choice while the little ones recharge their batteries.
