My daughter turned 21 last week, so her weekend choice was to visit a winery (something I had never done before) and to go to the casino.  

We loved the wineries.  We first went to Salt Water Farms in Stonington, CT.  It was an airplane hangar transformed into steel vats of wine.  The place was beautiful, the grounds were gorgeous.  We got there at 1:00 and stayed until 3:00.  Ricky and Jenn met us there.  The tasting was fun, but we only liked one of the wines.  We bought a bottle and sat outside the vineyard.  There are tables and chairs or Adirondack chairs to just enjoy the scenery.  We brought crackers and cheese and salsa and chips and carrots and hummus, so it was a nice spread!   They closed at 3:00 this day because there was  wedding scheduled for the evening.  We got to see the preparation for the wedding which was a lot of fun.  

 These photos are actually from the third winery we visited - Mangle Sierra, also in Stonington.  Although the wine was not as good here, the views and ambiance was spectacular.  We really enjoyed this place.
 Our next stop was the casino.  We had a great time - She wanted to go to the Mohegan Sun.  There were 13 of us.  Thomas, Me and Hope, Rick and Jenn, my sister and my two nieces, my other sister, Carla and my son Dominic and finance Samantha.  Then Samantha's mom, grandma, brother and a friend met us.  And one of Elizabeth's friends from work came also.  I think that is more than 13!!! (actually 16)
