3rd Anniversary Weekend

The print I had made for John -
our wedding song (Adele To Make you feel my love)

John and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary all weekend long with some family time and a quick overnight trip to Branson. Sawyer had gymnastic Saturday morning and John hadn't gotten to see him participate yet, so we started our weekend at his class. He did even better than last week and John loved  getting to see him do the obstacle course and flips.
We have been dying to check out Copper Run Distillery and thought this would be a perfect opportunity. After Sawyer's class, we headed to Copper Run for the tour, tasting and cocktails. We ended up meeting some awesome new friends who invited us to sit with them and try some specialty drinks. We invited them to join us at Stone Hill Winery for their tour and tasting and then to finish the evening at Cantina Laredo for dinner. John and I had reservations at Chateau on the Lake for the night. We decided to head back after dinner for a mean game of Uno at the bar hotel. Thanks to John's mom and step dad (and Cindie) for staying with Sawyer, he had such a fun time!
