Our weekend in Fredericksburg....

Sach and I celebrated our 2 years together with a trip to Fredericksburg at the beginning on August. We stayed at Camp David on Main St. and love it! The lady, Molly, who runs the place has got to be the sweetest person ever! I chose this B&B because they were cottages. I didn't want to stay in a big house with a bunch of people I didn't know. I'm a sucker for privacy. It was fantastic! We had alot of fun. We left early on Friday so we could enjoy the day. We had dinner at Pasta Bella, a very good little restraunt on Llano, just off Main St. I made us reservations at Rockbox theater ( I had been before with my mom and wanted Sach to go. They are a group of very talented couples and they put on quite a show!! I love music and was not sure if Sach would like it but we had a great time! We called it a night after the show.
I had a list of possible activities for Saturday but a "must" was the Wildseed Farms. I have been wanting to go for a while and I must say I was not disappointed. It is a wild flower farm but they have a butterfly house and also a wine tasting "bar." This started our wine tasting day! I have to say I enjoyed the butterflies! I'm a super nerd and was so interested in the different species and seeing the whole cycle, from the laying of eggs to a newly emerged butterfly. After the farm we prceeded to walk down Main Street. We stopped in every now and again and grabbed some wine or a beer as we strolled. It was very fun! We ended our evening at Hondo's. I had been there before with my mom and knew they usually have good entertainment on the weekends (and great burgers!). I was right! They had a great band playing on the outside patio. We happened to run into my old friend Dollie and her family and spent the evening visiting with them. It was a fantastic weekend and just the break we needed from our hectic schedules! And it was a fun weekend to celebrate our engagement! :)

What a fun trip! Did the whole butterfly cycle remind you of Chrysalis? Good times! Hope y'all are doing well!

That sounds like a wonderful weekend! I was just thinking the other day that I want to go there for a weekend and stay in a Bed and Breakfast!
