We had such a fun weekend! I love having the kids home. In addition to our Friday night trip to the Haunted House, Saturday we took another day trip to see the fall colors… and it was beautiful.
We ate at a little roadside cafe’ in Norfork. They had a good breakfast, but the town folk were what we found most enjoyable. Everyone knew everyone in the restaurant. Everyone was friendly… a little old gentleman even came in with some Halloween candy bagged up for any little ones that might be in the restaurant. It was Small Town USA at it’s finest.
After we ate breakfast we drove south toward Calico Rock and Mountain View. We drove around Calico and looked at some of the beautiful old houses that are dotted along the bluff that overlooks the river and in the old neighborhoods. Mountain View was bustling with people shopping the little shops and just as we were leaving they were setting up live music on the square.
We went on westward to see the Blanchard Springs Caverns. That was a sight to see. Pretty amazing.
Afterward driving most of the day we enjoyed supper together before heading home for some of the apple pie that Kale and Kayla bought for me at my favorite place in Harrison (Neighbor’s Mill).
And could they be ANY cuter??
I don’t know when I’ve had more fun with two people than I had with these two precious young’ens this weekend. I’m looking forward to going to visit them in Fayetteville in less than two weeks!!
(All of the above photos were taken by Kale – because his camera is a dandy!)
