Our Arkansas Getaway, take 2....

As I mentioned in an earlier post, hubs and I headed to Arkansas last weekend and got to spend some time with folks near and dear to our heart. In addition to lunch with our "son", we spent a couple of days hanging with my sweet ebay sister, Pam of Goldiloo Woodworks and her hubs and their friends! We had so much fun together and laughed till our sides were splitting. We were treated to a tour of the area and all the sights that Hardy Arkansas had to offer - but I tell ya, just spending the time with Pam and Chuck was like a soothing balm to my soul.

We loved our time together and hit it off right away. I wasn't quite ready to come home until I thought about how much we missed our cats - but we look forward to another weekend getaway with our great Arkansas friends!

It was beautiful country and we had such a fabulous time - so I will just let the photos tell the story for you ....


Meeting my Pammie and Marsha, her best friend since 1st grade.
We had such fun!!!



For dinner, we went to Biggers Bed and Breakfast - located up on top of a huge valley with a gorgeous view. The food was fantastic and we only got in trouble about 4 or 5 times with the Principal. Me and Pam tried to sneak upstairs to have a look around and she came running after us like we were fugitives. Man, she was a hard nose.... *giggle*







Marsha's finance', Ken - what a nice guy...
he even hammed it up with his frou frou drink! lol
What a great sport for the camera :)




Little Miss Goldie ♥
she is quite camera shy !


Biscuit lounging on his "veranda"


this is where Pammie logs all of her working hours - and I'm here to tell you, they have a beautiful set up !
Even comes with a swing for relaxing with the honey and the pooches ♥


Sweet Biscuit bounding off the porch


Chuck has restored this awesome tractor. He's mighty proud of it and rightly so!


Swinging with Lucy in the garage ... I could have stayed there all day!




I call this one "God's Natural Patio Furnture"




In case there was ever a doubt which one you should go in, the good folks of Arkansas remove all doubts.... :)



Yes... Chuck drove over this one lane slap of cement with rushing water on both sides.... in their HUGE TAHOE!!!



A park in Thayer Mo - more of Pammie's old stompin grounds!





We headed to Mammoth Springs - which brought a nice relaxing walk about the area filled with cool clear water and an awesome waterfall.
