Back in October, the Mosby’s treated us to a day at Qingdao’s Huadong Winery to celebrate Justin’s 30th birthday. If you saw our previous post about the winery, you will remember that we watched a short film on the history of the vineyard, did a tasting, and took a tour of the wine farm. When we were done with al of that – we did what we were most looking forward to: a picnic on the grass in front of the farm house.
In our last post we didn’t show you the pictures from our picnic, so here is a little bit of what went on after the tour and formalities were aside. It was time to relax, unwind, and enjoy!
Fortunately, there was a table available for us so we got comfy and opened up some wine to start off the celebrations. Haha, 30th birthdays are preeeetty important, so of course, we need to celebrate it as such.
The picnic food and refreshments were curtesy of the Mosby’s – and it was all so delicious and well-balanced. Great job guys! A perfect combination: Wine, crackers, cheese, olives, veggie sticks, grapes, pineapple, apples, peanut butter, biscuits, and dragon fruit.
Justin sure does enjoy his Goldfish crackers!
When our bellies were full we moved to some statutes located nearby and joked around for a while.. posing, doing cartwheels, and being silly. I won’t post those pictures because we were pretty miserable at trying to stay in sync. Although I guess it doesn’t help that I’ve never done a cartwheel in my life, and so my attempts were very comical to watch! The boys were not much better, and they kept falling into each other. We could not stop laughing at them, all the while taking tons of pictures which we will probably use for some embarrassingly funny video later.
This was a wonderful afternoon, and fortunately even though the skies were not completely clear, we were still able to view some pretty colours as the sun started to head towards the horizon. When we got a little chilly, and all our food and wine were finished, we caught a cab back to our apartment complex.
Thanks again to the Mosby’s!
A great 30th birthday celebration for Justin.
