When I was a little girl, I used to love to sit in my dad's truck and drive around the vineyards. He would drive me up and down the bumpy vineyard rows and point out bird nests and jackrabbits that called those places home. But while my dad was at work, it was my mom who would take me to the vineyards. Instead of driving through them we would walk through them. I was lucky enough to have grown up in a little farm beside a vineyard. And while I don't live right next to one anymore, I'm still surrounded by these hilly vineyards.
It's these fond memories I have of glowing green grass and hilly terrain that remind me why I enjoy being outdoors so much. Just a few hours before these pictures were taken, there was a storm in the valley. I spent the earlier part of the day walking and driving through the vineyards with my parents...just like old times!
Oh, and by the way. These pictures were taken the last weekend of April. The last weekend of April is usually when "April in Carneros" happens every year in Sonoma Valley. It's a weekend filled with wine and food pairings in the Carneros region of the valley. So in case you were wondering about the title of this post...that's why. :)
