My friend and I arrived at Pala around 10:45AM and met up with the rest of the group. We hopped in a limo and went wine tasting for 4 hours. I have never been wine tasting before and it was a fun time. Temecula wine country is beautiful and we made it to three different wineries. At the last one we sat under a beautiful tree and ate some food. When we got back to Pala we went to our room, changed into our bathing suits and went down to the pool. It was a nice and relaxing time just hanging out, talking with old friends and getting to know new. In the evening we went to dinner and then I played some blackjack for about an hour, at a few different tables. I only gave myself $20 to gamble and at one point I was up $65 but ended up walking away only making $20. It is $20 more I had before I started so I am happy with it. It was really sad walking around the casino and looking at all the people gambling, none of them were smiling. One table we were playing at this man put down $1000 cash and lost it all in about 10 minutes. I could never be a gambler, I just don't like loosing my money like that.
I came home earlier than the rest of the group because I think Jason wanted me to. The kids did not even care that I was gone and Porter said that he did not miss me. Liesl was a little happier to see me than Porter but still did not react too much and did not ask for milk. I nursed her this evening, but she didn't fall asleep while nursing, so she ended up passing out at 10PM watching the Golden Compass with Porter and me.
