Joyful House

Joyful House

A joyful house is one filled with the laughter of children.  Our guests this weekend brought a lot of laughter and joy to the Beckwith Mansion.

A friend from Pittsburg, California, contacted us about room availability.  Before long, we had booked her nephew’s family for their family tour through the region.

We get a lot of older couples (without children in tow) staying here, but there is something about a house full of children’s giggles and smiles.  It was also fun to walk out in the front yard and seeing children tossing a Frisbee around while mom was taking pictures and dad loading the ice chest for the day’s venture.

Before long, they were off for the day.  Later when they returned, those old enough went to the temple while grandma stayed behind to watch the little ones.  One of them drew a picture and presented it to Elizabethe…

Later I heard the sounds of children in the basement family room having fun playing with the toys.  Their laughter and giggles is quite welcome here at the Beckwith Mansion.

That’s what it is all about… families.

I have a speaking engagement on Monday in Scranton, Pennsylvania.  I’ve got to throw a few things together for it.  It’s not like teaching here at the studio where things are close at hand.  If you don’t pack it, you won’t have it.  So, I’ve got to focus on getting ready.

The Beckwith Mansion is located in the Village of Palmyra, New York, and is classified as a tourist home.  Think of us like a Bed and Breakfast, except we don’t serve meals.  Lodging is affordable and you may use our kitchen to serve your meals.  We are also walking distance from several restaurants in the area.  To make reservations call us at (315) 359-5280.

Elizabethe is Home Again

Elizabethe is Home Again

Elizabethe is home again. I picked her up from the airport this morning.  She was tired and went straight to taking a nap while I went straight to a meeting, and after that, we both headed to the temple for the evening.

I didn’t get a lot done today.  I had to head out early this morning to get Elizabethe, came home with about 1 hour to spare before my meeting, and had an afternoon of client meetings.

Looking at my calendar for tomorrow and it doesn’t look like I will have much time tomorrow either.  I have a 9am doctor appointment an 11am business meeting, and then off to Geneva for photography meetings all afternoon in to the early evening.

We went to the temple and had a nice evening there.  I met a man from Ripon, California, but he didn’t know any of the people I knew around that area.  But, he was impressed that I knew where Ripon is.  Not many people have been to Ripon, California.

We still have a couple of openings for Hill Cumorah Pageant.  If you are looking for lodging, there are not many hotels, motels or bed & breakfast inns in this area.  We are like a B&B except we don’t serve breakfast.  Contact us to find out if we have rooms.  We’re not as expensive, and we have a lot of history.
