    Is that a fish jumping out of the water? You should sell that to animal planet!

    Tire swing and merry-go-round…best parts of the playground! I miss merry-go-rounds so much; they don’t seem to have them anywhere in California. So sad!

    How gorgeous-these photos are all stunning! I love them all, but I especially love the wine glass, blueberry pancakes, fish on the hook and that cherry beer drink! I read in the comments that you don’t know (remember) what juice was in the cocktail. Is it possible you could call the restaurant or go back and have another cocktail so you could “investigate” the ingredients for us and post about that cocktail? Come on, Jessica…please take one for the team! ;-) Seriously- that drink sounds amazing and I would love the recipe. I have never heard of cherry beer, but I want to find some to make this for my BBQ this weekend. I hope I can find it!

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation…it looks like you are having tons of fun and eating tons of amazing food! :-)

      We will probably be back there and I’m going to get another! :) I didn’t even look at the menu and this was just what the bartender handed me which is why I didn’t know!

        That would be awesome! I know you can charm your server into spillin’ the beans! ;-)

    I came back today to see if you posted that awesome cherry beer cocktail recipe yet, Jessica! I bought some cherry beer today in hopes that you will post the recipe when you return…please do! :-)

    • Jessica — August 5th, 2011 @ 9:32 pm

      K I just got back from the restaurant! It is not something they have on the menu but the bartender (it was the same guy) said he does about 8 oz of cherry beer, 2 oz of lemon vodka, and 3-4 oz of juice – he uses orange juice AND cranberry juice mixed!!
