This Day, Mother's Day
Then I took her (and the kids) out to North Gate Winery in Purcellville. My wife mistakenly took a tasting glass for me, but I couldn't partake as I was packing. So she had my share, and then tasted some more. She was pretty happy, all before noon. We ended up bringing home 5 bottles of wine. Two of the bottles were the new Petit Verdot, which North Gate won awards for the last time they bottled it. I highly recommend North Gate wines.
We stopped for a late lunch at Magnolia's at the Mill in "downtown" Purcellville. They had brick oven pizzas and I got a burger. Good stuff. On our way out of town, I did think about stopping by Purcell Guns but the store was closed. Seriously, nobody was buying guns for their dear Mums on Mother's Day?
