Family Fun Friday … Rerun?

The debate is on: Does it qualify as a rerun, if the last time we were there was during Christmas Season?

The weather was certainly warmer and with warmth comes the desire to explore a little more.

Oh we hit our favorite spots

For lunch we chose Waffle Which again. It is a fun place with an unique menu that is much more than waffles (but Sherry highly recommends the gluten free waffle) as you will be amazed at what they can create with a waffle iron (like try the loaded hash browns!).

And no trip is complete with out shopping on the square and stopping into the Martinsville Candy Kitchen. We placed our order for Handmade Christmas Candy Canes which means we will be back in December!

This was our unique find today …  

Still not sure if I feel patriotic or creeped out? Will let you decide

We also discovered an unique spot we missed in the cold of winter – The Art Sanctuary. What was once the United Methodist Church in downtown Martinsville has new life as an event center and is the home to large number of local artists who have studios in each of the former classrooms and offices.

We also made another great find on our way home just off of 67 in Mooresville. The Chunky Monkey. They serve up Hershey Brand Ice Cream! and they make incredible Ice Cream Nachos at least according to Riley.

We once again hit the three components of a great family fun Friday.  And while it was a rerun, we discovered something new.

Lesson Learned – old things can be new again if we are open to the journey and the adventure!


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
