What do you do when you are in Waco, TX? Visit Magnolia of course!
While in TX we were less than two hours away from Waco, so visiting Magnolia was a no brainer. An added bonus was that a dear friend of mine just so happened to be in a town just a few hours away for her Master's Degree graduation and meeting up at Magnolia was the perfect spot!
Magnolia is a neat place. The silos are really cool and they have it set up as a place to gather, fellowship, and of course shop!
The Silos are in the old downtown area. It is a very busy place and parking near by was a bit crazy. We found a spot a few blocks away. The walk wasn't bad at all.
I am so glad my girlfriend and her family were able to meet us there. Her and her husband have three kiddos, their son is close in age to our oldest, and they all had a fun time playing together. In the courtyard of Magnolia, they have an astroturf lawn with bean bag chairs and corn hole. The dads watched the kiddos while my friend and I went inside to have some undivided time to catch up on life and browse.
They have food trucks along the back corner of the property, which is a great idea! It was mid afternoon when we arrived, so we got a sweet treat from the Silos food truck. Cute Airstream! I had the lemon-lavender cupcake and rose elderflower sparkling lemonade. Delish!
I asked someone to take a photo of us all together. I sure did pick the right guy...he actually laid down on the ground to get the shot with the Silos in the background! Special thanks to him.
We spend several hours enjoying time together. They have a cute garden area we walked around and caught up on life.
Friendships are so important and I am thankful I stay in touch with this sweet friend. We have known each other since 5th grade!
Who are your long-term friends? Have you connected with them lately? If not, I encourage you to reach out.
Blessings to you!
Hi! My name is Mandy Jo.
Thanks for visiting my blog! Being a mom in this modern age is a blessing, but no cake walk. So many expectations are imposed on us and it can be overwhelming and often discouraging.
