Love Overflowing

An evening at the Magic House

Stephen’s company is sponsoring an exhibit at the Magic House, the Soybean Story. In appreciation for their sponsorship, the Magic House graciously opened up Saturday night just for the employees of Stephen’s company. It was like your own private party! The crowd was just the right size so you weren’t bumping into people or fighting over the same exhibits. We had a blast there!

Emily’s favorite things were: anything that made music, the air shooter thing and the water table. She could have spent the entire evening in the new section where all the music things were. She was having so much fun that she didn’t want to sit still for 5 minutes to have any of the yummy sweets that were catered in!

I am not sure who was more tired on the way home- Emily or Mommy! It was such a great time. We just love the Magic House. Emily really enjoyed exploring the new section with Daddy. It was his first time since they opened it.

Anniversary Trip

Stephen and I celebrated our anniversary with our annual trip to a bed and breakfast. This year we chose to head to Augusta. I wasn’t pregnant when we booked the trip so we had planned on hitting all the wineries and having a great time. Good things happened and plans changed but we had a great time nonetheless.

We stayed at the HS Clay House. It was very eclectic. There was so much to see in that house. All types of historical pictures and papers. And lots of…..treasures…. It was a really neat place. It had a pool, which we did take advantage of after dinner and a hot tub, which we didn’t take advantage of. I would say the best part was that we were the only guests so we had the ENTIRE house to ourselves. It was quiet and relaxing. Of course, the breakfast was SCRUMPTIOUS. We had a really great time hitting a few wineries, driving to Washington a few times and enjoying an adult dinner.

Emily stayed the night at Grandma and Papa’s. They had a blast together and she did great. Didn’t give Grandma any problems going to bed. Wonder what Grandma’s secret is…. They had such a great time that I think more slumber parties are in order!
