Adventures in Arkansas: Part 1

Earlier this month we took a few days off and went camping in Arkansas!  Some folks are of the opinion that camping is something you do only out of necessity and not by choice.  I guess I'm just not one of them.  It takes me a night to get used to everything, but being outdoors is so good for my soul.  J is five and the explorer in him is exploding these days.  Over the last couple of months I've grown convicted about giving the kids lots of outdoor experiences and making camping a family tradition at least every year.  So on our way to Devil's Den State Park, we stopped at Artist Point.

Unfortunately I didn't get all of my work done before time to leave so I spent a little time on the computer the first day.  But I couldn't complain about the work space!

Our next stop was at War Eagle Mill where we learned about grinding corn and bought some yummy Organic Pecan Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pancake Mix.  In the gift shop the kids were intent on playing chess, though they didn't really know how.

After we left here, we stopped by some friends, the Watsons, for a delicious dinner and play time for the kids!  I didn't even think to get any pictures! :(  We had a great time anyway!
