Our 6th Anniversary- As a family

Dennis treated me to a Friday full of pampering. Manicure, Pedicure, eye brow waxing, a wax for my hands, a hair, cut, color, and style. I was at the salon from 1:30-6:00!!!!! Looking back, I wished I could have just relaxed and enjoyed it, but instead, I was tense, watching the clock and anxious to get back home. I guess when you are a mom to a small baby, it’s hard to take your mind off of mommyhood, and feeding times, etc. It was a rare treat and very proud and impressed that my hubby took a day off of work for me to be treated. Afterwards, we enjoyed a DELICIOUS dinner at Shula’s at the Sheraton Hotel in Roanoke. It was DELICIOUS!!!!! Pricey if you order the steak, but WELL WORTH IT!!!! Then we went to Hotel Roanoke to listen to music and talk about our future together. It was an amazing night. Thanks to Paul & Jill who watched our Daniel overnight. (By the way, he woke up at 4am but she distracted him until 6 am when she called me to come pick him up)

THEN. . . on Saturday we took our annual long drive to see the fall foliage and see new things. Our first stop was Paint Bank, Va. This was a restaurant that had a swinging bridge up top with an old general store.

Dennis and Daniel are looking at the people eating down below. (And yes, that is a CHRISTMAS tree in the background!)

Before leaving, we got two cold drinks- (root beer, and an RC Cola) a Moon pie, and a candy screw driver for Daniel.

Then, around 4:00p.m. Daniel expressed to us that he needed to nurse, so we pulled in this parking lot in WEST VIRGINIA to feed Daniel. There was a pee-wee football team playing. Those kids were really cute, and really GOOD!

The leaves were pretty- but not as bright and bold as I was hoping for.

We stopped at an Amish Shop/Furniture store. It was really neat. IMG_0468

Then we stopped at this Humpback Bridge. I did something pretty fun for the girls in my small group. I tried to find all of their names in this grafattied bridge. I was 98% successful!

Then, we ended the evening at Maw & Paw’s diner in Eagle Rock for dinner. It was good.

It was a fantastic anniversary weekend. We really enjoyed it, and I can’t wait until next year for another anniversary to celebrate it again. Hmmm, wonder what another year of marriage will bring us?!? : – )

What a fun time! I'm a little confused on how you ended up in West VA. We'll have to go to lunch or dinner or dessert soon, so I can hear about it. Did you find my name??? Did your SUNDAY have WHIP CREAM?
