Saturday Afternoon With The Girls

After many many years of saying, "I really want to go there" I finally made it to Weston, MO.

Weston is a small historic town about an hour north of Olathe. It is so charming and home to many antique and home furnishing stores, gift shops, and restaurants.

We also visited two wineries in the area, The Riverwood and the Pirtle. Both offered tastings of their wines. I ended up getting two bottles. An apple wine made from johnny smith apples and a sweet red.

The girls and I also enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Vineyards Restaurant. It is adorable! Excellent prices and seriously the most amazing butternut squash soup I have ever eaten! In fact, it was one of the best things I've ever tasted in my entire life, and I like to eat!

Overall, the girls and I had a wonderful afternoon in Weston. I plan to go back soon because they also have a ski park and are always hosting festivals (Irish, Apple Orchard, etc.) So fun!
