Spa day with Mom

Mom's birthday was last week and since this was the first chance we had to get together, we celebrated for her today. It was ALL about Mom today.
We drove to Calistoga ( about 20 miles north of Napa) and enjoyed the mud bath, mineral spa and massage at Dr. Wilkinson's Day Spa and Resort. This isn't your typical trendy/frou frou spa experience, this is for folks that don't mind a somewhat sterile hospital-like feeling. it's for people that want to just get down to business and get spa-ified without the pretense and snobs all around.
We were relaxed and felt so pampered, the only thing left to do was to eat a delicious lunch. Mom had seen Brannan's Grill showcased on Eye on the Bay and so we gave it a try. This is what was left of the chocolate lava torte we shared for dessert. OMG.
I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for food in Calistoga.
On the way home we talked about lots of mother/daughter things. It was a perfect day:)
No workouts today.
