So one evening the entire meeting group (close to 200 people) was bused from the hotel to a beautiful winery for dinner. And for wine tasting. I mean, I think that goes without saying. Here's a photo of my husband with a bunch of wine bottles in a row; it reminds me of Russian stacking dolls (matryoshki):
Oh, I should mention that our son was with a babysitter that night. Do you want to know how much it costs to use a babysitting service in Napa Valley? For five hours, $135! Not including the tip. Clearly we all need to quit our jobs and become professional nannies in northern California. Thankfully one of my co-workers has a son who is a little older than my son (and our boys get along well) so we were able to split the childcare costs.
