Yesterday, February 11, 2016, we had the pleasure of meeting a sweet lady by the name of Bonnie. She and her daughters came to the museum to look around, and so Ms. Bonnie could reminisce about the good ole days. The best part was that dear Ms. Bonnie was celebrating her 102nd Birthday! That's right, 102!!! We even sang Happy Birthday to her. And to make it even better, her daughters wanted to surprise her with a horse and buggy ride. The pure joy on Ms. Bonnie's face is one we won't be forgetting (or the giggling either) ;-) She was like a little girl again. It was priceless. You could feel her daughter's love and happiness as they watched her ride in the buggy. Then they joined her, and we decided to make it even more special by taking them by horse and buggy to Red Bud Cafe for lunch. Now how cool is that?!?
They were delighted! Now one would think that this day wouldn't get much better, but then they would be wrong....because while Ms. Bonnie and her daughters (& Dennis, Kelly & Brent) were eating lunch, in walks Blanco's very own astronauts, Tom Henricks and Dan Brandenstein! Now being the great men that they are, they of course come to say hello and are happy to meet Ms. Bonnie and take a picture with her. So, a big thank you to Tom and Dan.
When Ms. Bonnie and her girls got home yesterday afternoon, they emailed us telling us what a wonderful time they had, but truth be told, we were the ones who were delighted to have them there with us.
So thank you to all of them for celebrating Ms. Bonnie's birthday with us, and we do hope you had a wonderful and memorable time!
My name is Amanda, daughter of Dennis and Kelly Moore...the masterminds of Buggy Barn Museum and I work here too ;) I thought I would share some of what is going on around here and some of the activities we have done or will be doing.
