we headed to arkansas to spend thanksgiving with jay’s mom and step dad. i love going to arkansas…when i’m there i completely and totally relaxed. i don’t worry about meal prep, cleaning, laundry and even the weight of trivial worries like work seem to fade away. it’s kind of like heaven on earth.
it’s a long drive for us, well long drive with 2 boys, 1 who doesn’t like to sit still for extended periods of time.
we got a little entertainment for the road.
on our way down we stopped in fayetteville. we have stopped before but we spent just a little more time than we have in the past. their football stadium is incredible. it’s fun to root for them and i kind of feel like we have a connection since we have family there.
the arkansas razorbacks lost a young football player on the sunday before our visit. yet again a reminder that life is fragile.
lunch. (hammontrees) one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches….ever
and after eating a little shopping at the bookstore to get some new Arkansas gear.
once we made it to clarksville we settled in for a long weekend. we spent time by camp fires
drank lots and lots of coffee :)
watched lots of football…are you shocked?
ate great food (note: healthy green beans is kind of a joke. these suckers were loaded with butter and bacon and probably bacon grease :)) i didn’t even get pictures of the desserts
and finally…spending time counting our blessings.
