Mom's visit was a success. The weather held out and we managed to garden a lot. Then Ida had her ballet performances all weekend and then...we all got the stomach flu in varying degrees.

Slowly but surely we are rounding up the equipment.

When Ida was born we made one for her too. Here is her label for the Polar Bear created by Ida Pearl:
All proceeds from these wines go the college/travel the world/start your own business fund.
