Two years ago Becky came to visit Annie in Williamsburg, this past Wednesday she surprised Annie by showing up for a visit to Springfield! Becky brought a very special gift from Ann Arbor; wooden Easter ornaments from my parents. While living in England my parents bought a set of wooden, painted ornaments from Cologne and they have now been passed down to us!

After the castle BP and I explored around downtown before meeting up with Dan at Springfield Brewing Company on the patio for a delicious lunch and a shared beer flight.

On Saturday (Dan and my 6th Anniversary) we enjoyed a bicycle ride to the Botanical Gardens then came home to an unwelcome surprise. Annie, not wanting to miss out on any of the excitement, ate an entire (3 oz) chocolate bar from Askinosie that Dan had lovingly purchased for me (not her!) as an Anniversary gift. Uggh. After some internet research and a call to the emergency vet in town Dan fed her some hydrogen peroxide to induce her to get the chocolate out of her system - it did the trick!
