We were in Sonoma celebrating my wife’s birthday and stopped by a small winery in Sebastapol for a tasting. This lovely green patch of lawn was very inviting. My daughter has her pouty face on because she wasn’t happy about being told to stand still and pose. Not sure if all three-year-olds are this headstrong but she wouldn’t even give me the benefit of eye contact.

I had planned to take a lot more photos while we were in Sonoma (I even packed a travel tripod, which is pretty rare these days) but I ended up taking less than 20 frames over the course of 7 days in San Francisco and Sonoma.
