Arkansas. Home away from home... some home at least :) Arkansas used to be home and every time we are back in the state it definitely feels like home again :)
Two weeks ago we took the trek down to Arkansas that way Mom and Dad could fly to Florida from there and we kids could hang out with friends. We all definitely had a grand time! Here's just a peek at all we did :)
The drive down. We got to see a rainbow! It was beautiful!
Damarise, Sarah and I stayed with the Bennetts (again, thank you SO much Bennetts!) We had a wonderful time with them.
We went over to the LaTour's for lunch and to say goodbye to Mom and Dad. Nineteen kids all together is a LOT!
Saturday was a church picnic. Damarise and I tried out the kayak. It was a wee bit scary... feeling like I'm suddenly going to tip into the water just isn't my cup of tea.
I got to mow for the very first time! It was exciting and made me feel a little more comfortable behind the wheel of some vehicle.
Sarah and Elizabeth... always making everyone laugh :)
Michael's graceful dive. He tried to teach me... Ha ha! Let's just say that my cannonballing into the water was probably more graceful than my dive ;)
Our last morning we decided to get up and watch the sunrise :) 5:45 we were up and out of the house.
And then we left :( But we definitely had a great time! Thank you Bennetts for opening up your house to us! Thanks for the great food, the fun, the games, the laughs, and for making us feel like family for a few weeks! We loved it!
