A Few Days with Padre

 Well, it looks as if I've loaded the pictures I wanted to share with you backwards so I guess I'll tell about our last few days backwards! The kids and I went to my dad's house for a couple of days this week. We don't see each other very often, so we headed over for a quick visit. On our way back we stopped by Mack's in Stuttgart. It's world renown, but we bought nothing. Prior to stopping there we made our second stop at Craig's BBQ in DeValls Bluff. OMWord! That is one good bbq sandwich.
 We had big plans for Thursday that just might have included fishing and a certain coach's pond. But, God saw fit to answer the prayers of many southern farmers and it rained. And rained. So we headed to the mall. We shopped and shopped and bought nothing. Not. A. Thing. Until we came upon this little bouncy business. I think it's called the Jumping Spider. All the kids did it, but this picture of Samuel is my favorite. His hair makes me laugh. It used to do that when he would run when he was little, I love this child. Dad and Connie had fun watching. Connie took the day off to spend with us, we enjoyed it so much.
Wednesday night we had dinner at Aunt Barbara and Uncle Joe's. Hollye, Matthew and Claire came over and we had such a fun time. The kids all played out in the backyard, the same yard where Hollye, Abby, and I used to play. Oh, the memories! Uncle Joe grilled some of the biggest burgers I've ever seen and we stuffed ourselves. We talked about Abby, Grandmother, and expired foods. We might have even eaten some expired food, I'll never tell! HA!
I wish I had taken a pic of the adults. Hollye's hair looked so pretty, it was picture worthy. Next time maybe. If Abby is with us, definitely!!
So, what have you done this week?
