JR and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary over the weekend (March 19th was the real date). We decided to take a road trip to Bentonville, AR. I know! We are exciting. I plan to regale you with more in depth posts about the trip (for the Spin Cycle) but thought I'd give you a random bunch of photos. See how I'm squeezing 2 possibly 3 posts out of the same trip? Clever, no? Yeah, I didn't think so.
JR, Nessa and I stopped for a beer and a snack in Fayetteville, AR. This fulfilled my part of the road trip deal I made with JR a long time ago. Here's the deal, JR is willing to go to any and all museums/historical sites/big ball of string crazy places that I want to see as long as there is at least one brewpub visit. I chose to get the deal out of the way early in the trip. Cuts down on the complaining about driving and my working while he drove. I had a speech on Houston founding and railroad history to give on Monday at the Junior League.(FYI, I rocked it. If you ever want to know about the founding of the city of Houston or the beginnings of railroads in Houston let me know...because I'm your gal.)
Down town Eureka Springs. They were having a St. Patrick's Day parade. It was interesting. Crowded. We thought we'd have a hard time finding parking but the first parking lot we pulled into had a single space available and the meter still had 56 minutes on it. How cool is that? I pushed in a couple of more quarters to give us some more time. Than JR and I went to lunch. Ate very passable but not great food.
This is the reason we drove 8+ hours. The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. I'll post much more about this later in the week but just know, it was worth every minute in the car. I think after her 4 mile art walk even Nessa would agree.
On the drive up we enjoyed the fabulous display the Texas wildflowers put on. I think they need another couple of days to be perfect. The blue bonnets were out but the Indian Paintbrush still has a few more days.
My phone did a great job of filling in for the camera that we once again forgot. This is the story of our life. We each remind the other not to forget the camera than both of us do. Do you do this?
There is the quick version of our weekend. There will be more to follow. Including a new "we can afford that", the Road trip Spin, and a wildflower show. There maybe a couple of more posts I can squeeze out of the trip but I can't think of them now.
How was your weekend? Do anything special?
