Our Chick-fil-A Mother - Daughter Tea Party

A few weeks ago Bethany and I planned a Mother - Daughter Tea Party for a Saturday morning at Chick-fil-A. I love planning events like this because I have so many fun memories of doing similar things with my mom and friends growing up. I remember feeling so special to get dressed up and have time with just mom or just dad. I am blessed that Jay and I get to create an environment for kids to have similar memories with their families.

We had about 80 moms and daughters and it was a huge success! We always have things that we learn to improve upon for next time, but we're happy with how it turned out.

 We painted flower pots and had flower seeds to take home and plant with mom later.

 Princess Cow is also always a big hit! We have great cows too... they are rockstars and really know how to make kids smile!

Bethany and I found tea cups and tea pots at a thrift store for super cheap and it was fun to "play tea" with lemonade at each table.

It was a great morning to kick off spring for our waynesboro community!

a few of our february adventures

Up until yesterday I had neglected this little blog in a huge way! Life just got too busy.

But we are back in Virginia for a few weeks and I wanted to share a few of the pictures from our Wyoming / Yellowstone Adventure! We traveled to Jackson Hole Wyoming for a few days and it was a wonderful winter get-away. Yellowstone in the winter is a little crazy I know, but it was on our "before kids" bucket list. {yes we have a "before kids" to do list... its just how we roll}

It snowed every instant of our time in Wyoming and it was quite chilly, but so much fun and lots of awesome new experiences! 

Like driving a dog sled

 And swimming in natural hot springs in the snow

 And literally wearing five pairs of pants at the same time

And going snowmobiling! It was SO much fun... if you have never been you need to. period. 
We saw lots of Bison. It was neat to be so close to such HUGE wild animals.
Old Faithful was really amazing, but not very photograph friendly in the winter against a white sky... so, that means we just have to go back :) 

We got to go on a sleigh ride through thousands of Elk on the national elk reservation. 

It was a great trip and a much needed time of rest and adventure together.

it's a marriage monday.

Jay and I heard this quote over the weekend and both said "Oh! SO True!"

"A great marriage is the union of two forgivers."
- Ruth Graham

So simple and so very true.

Be encouraged friends. Forgive your husband for leaving his wet towel on the floor in the bathroom and then go make him this for dinner. We made it with Chicken instead of shrimp because I loath shrimp. And Jay forgives me for this.
