How I Spent The Holidays: Dec 22 (Napa & Back Again)

DAY 9 of our trip is slightly more planned, though no less alcohol-filled than the day before. First stop on the second day of our Napa excursion is COPIA, where Mackie and I tour the wine and food exhibits, the Edible Gardens, take Wine Tasting 101 and Wine and Food Pairing classes and attend a cooking demonstration (with wine, of course).

After COPIA, we drive over to the Darioush winery for more photo ops (and a bag of pistachios):

Sadly, Darioush is our last official stop in Napa. Mackie and I soon head back to my sister's house in Cameron Park where we meet up with her and her husband, Adam for a pre-Christmas dinner with my relatives in Elk Grove.  The highlight of the dinner comes afterwards when my cousin, Dexter, brings out Rock Band and everyone tries their hand at being a rock star for one night (as usual, some people are better at this than others).
