Sonoma again!

I think this picture sums up our last day in California:
We started Sunday off with a nice walk down to brunch at Worth Our Weight.  If you've ever been to FareStart in Seattle, then this restaurant is very similar.  They "provide tuition-free culinary and food service  training" to youth "who have faced major challenges in their lives." The food was very yummy and the atmosphere was so quaint!
After that, it was wine tasting time!  We worked our way down from Santa Rosa to Sonoma Square, stopping at wineries the whole way!

First stop:  St. Frances Winery & Vineyards

Second stop: VJB Cellars

Third stop:  Gundlach Bundschu

Then we arrived at the uber quaint Sonoma square!

We made one final stop before dinner:  Sigh, a champagne bar in the square.  It was amazing!

A wall full of champagne; can I have one please?

We each tried a different champagne flight, and it was heaven!  Love me some champagne!
Finally, we all enjoyed an amazing meal at The Girl and the Fig, one of the most highly recommended restaurants in Sonoma (#2 on Trip Advisor!)
The food was incredible!  I started with the most amazing lavender mojito
Then we all shared a delicious kale & strawberry salad and a cheese & fruit plate.  So good!

Then we ordered a Croques Monsieur...
...grilled cheeses....

...and a pork belly sandwich. 
Alex's dad always pretends to hate photos and then sits there posing until I take his picture :)

What a wonderful end to the weekend!!

After getting back to Santa Rosa, we made one quick pit stop at Russian River Brewing Company so Tim could bring back some bottles of the famous Pliny the Elder.
What an amazing weekend!!! Once again, a huge thank you to Angela & Dan for having us and being wonderful hosts!!!
