Gary and Roz take a trip (ALONE!!!!)

Gary and I had the most awesome weekend away! We attended our first ever Grape Stomp. It was held at Henscratch Farms in Lake Placid Florida ( go to Fort Pierce, turn West and head to the middle of the state!). Henscratch is a little local winery that Kelcey and I found out about 2 weeks ago. They have a festival once a year where they set out a big metal stomping bin and let the masses help them stomp grapes for a special edition of their wine ( ironically called Foot Stomp Wine). At the festival, you can order bottles of this special wine, with a customized label of you in the bucket stomping the grapes! There is music, food, grape picking and of course wine at the festival. We met lots of fun people, and had a great time. December or January is their strawberry festival, where you can pick hydroponically grown berries! We will attend that weekend with the boys.

Gary and I stayed at the Kenilworth Lodge in Sebring. This hotel is old, and looks like the hotel featured in The Shining, by Stephen King. Yes, it really is haunted. We had a few goofy things happen this weekend, and Gary is convinced they were poltergeist related! Too funny...especially if you know my Gary. It was great to get away by ourselves, as the boys stayed home together.
