My parents were here visiting us over the long Columbus Day weekend. And, as per usual, we took one day to visit their favorite wineries on the North Fork. You see, they live in Pennsylvania and the archaic liquor laws of my home state make it impossible for them to get the wines I write so much about unless they come here. The wineries can’t ship to them. And the state-run liquor and wine shops don’t stock them either.

So here was the back of our Jeep Cherokee as we finished up at our last stop. All told I think we had 7 cases of wine (not all of it was for my parents, but a lot of it was) plus a few other bottles picked up here and there.

And of course you can see Jackson’s stroller, Nena’s diaper bag, one of his toys and a few other baby-related things in this shot as well.
