It was blazing hot but the Hurts had a fun-filled weekend nonetheless. Jed’s Mom, Lynn (a.k.a. Meme) arrived on Thursday, so Jed and I took advantage of the free babysitting and escaped to Noble’s Grill for a romantic dinner and belated anniversary celebration on Friday night. We beat the heat on Saturday by taking part in a little shopping on Saturday afternoon followed by a cookout at a friend’s house that evening. We did brave the sizzling temperatures long enough to peruse the farmer’s market in Old Salem on Saturday morning and tasted some local wines from Sanders Ridge located in the Yadkin Valley. After learning a little more about the vineyard, we decided to make it our Sunday brunch destination the following afternoon. We enjoyed many of the wines as well as a delicious lunch composed of mostly local ingredients. After we dined, we hung outside long enough for a brief photo session before we retreated inside to the very necessary air conditioning.
