A Trip To MO!!
Well, we finally were able to make it to MO to visit my dear friend Danielle, they were having a screening of a documentary about her Mom and we went down to see that, and to spend some time with Dannie. Dad, Anna and I left early Sunday morning and made it there by about 1:30..,it was SO great to see Danielle again. :)
First of all we met up with Danielle at her house and got to meet her Dad and step Mom, and her cute little brother Luke. Then we headed to AppleBee's where everybody was waiting on us for lunch..."everybody" meaning Danielle's sisters Mandy and Tara, Sage and Tera Naylor, and Hans and Helena Bluedorn. The waitress there was like cracking us up SO much though, it was hilarious! :D After lunch we went over to a coffee shop, it was rather windy outside and well...lets just say Dannie and wind don't go too well together. :P Then we headed to Tara's house to change and get ready for the screening.
It was really neat to get to see the documentary, very sad of course but I really enjoyed seeing it and it touched me deeply. We got to meet lots of people there as well, which was a lot of fun.
After the screening it was time to party!! We all went out to dinner and then headed to the Hunts house, they were SO hospitable to us, opening their home and just treated us so kindly. I had so much fun, finally got to meet Collyn Hunt, Danielle's friend that I hear so much about. It was so neat though, even though we'd never met before it felt like I'd known Collyn and her whole family for years! We played "spoons" and then four on a couch, and got to hear some singing as well. :D AND we ended up staying up all night talking! :0 Well, actually Danielle and I were like SO wiped out that we ended up sleeping for about 45 minutes but that was it. :) We were just having so much fun together we didn't want to go to bed. :) And of course our time there was so short we had to make the most of it. We left Monday morning at about 6:30 so we could get back in time to take the goats to the fair...but I'm going to make a separate post about that.
It was such a great trip and I enjoyed every bit of it! The pictures aren't the greatest...but they are pretty much all I have. :) Love you, Dannie Mistina!
