Babymoon Love :)

Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July weekend! We spent our long weekend in Weston, MO celebrating our babymoon before the baby arrives!

Weston is one of our most favorite places to visit. It has everything we love- small town charm, breweries/wineries, and bed and breakfasts. Even though we couldn’t enjoy the breweries/wineries this time, Eric was able to get a flight of beer at the brewery and I did the honor of smelling each one and predicting what it’d taste like. I do what I can.

I forgot my “fancy” camera on this trip, but I was actually OK with it. We took a few photos with our phones (Eric’s pictures turned out better), but mostly we just enjoyed each other’s company and had a fun, relaxing time! Our bed and breakfast, the Benner House, had a really nice pool that we lounged at. Eric even surprised me with a couple’s massage! It was heavenly and a fun thing to do together. We went to the plaza for happy hour, and hit up the 4th of July festivities in Parkville, MO. Overall, it was just what the doctor ordered- a perfect, fun, relaxing babymoon as a couple! Who knows when we’ll have another getaway like this!

I (Eric) was able to get some of his pictures of our babymoon experience! These candid snapshops give you a little hint of the relaxation that took place over the 4th of July weekend.

Babymoon Flights

Weston has an awesome Brewery for such a small town. If you are in the neighborhood you should definitely stop by and partake in the flights offered there. Here is the website for Weston Brewing Company.

Babymoon Bed and Breakfast

Kelli and I love being able to get away from reality for a bit. We’ve found that B&Bs offer a great solution for a babymoon retreat. We stayed at the Benner House and it was great! Personally, my favorite part of the stay was the breakfast that was made each morning. Top breakfast I’ve had in a while. Again, if you live within driving distance to Weston, MO look into staying at the Benner House.

Parkville Babymoon

Here was our stop in Parkville to watch the fireworks. We ended up getting there a little too early(5pm arrival for a 9:30 firework show) oops… We made the best of it and people watched at the carnival to pass the time.

Babymoon Carnival

This was Kelli’s favorite part of the retreat. What babymoon is complete without a prenatal massage?

Babymoon Drinks

What a wonderful adventure! With Charlotte being our first mini, we’ve learned a lot of different things when it comes to babies and what to expect. Our babymoon was a lesson we don’t mind learning over and over again. It was a great way to relax with just the two of us. It gave us time to bond over the bundle of Joy we are about to bring into this world!!
