Quick Trip To Fayetteville

Alvin and I made a quick trip to Fayetteville yesterday to see Casey (our youngest daughter) and Josh. Casey and Josh moved to Fayetteville early in January and we haven't seen them but a couple of times since. Shortly after arriving, after the home tour we opened our "Father & Mother's Day" gifts. YIPPEE!!!! Casey said she went with a cooking theme this year to get mommy motivated! HA! HA! HA! No chance! Alvin always says he can hide any of my gifts in the oven and I would never find them. So true!

Then off to Dickson St. for lunch. We ate on the veranda at Hog Haus Brewing Co. The food was ever so yummy!

After eating and driving around Fayetteville for awhile (using all the cheap gas we could) we headed back to Casey's and sat out on the patio for most of the afternoon, the weather was so nice, low humidity, slight wind blowing, you get the picture.

Then we drove to Springdale to watch the Northwest Arkansas Naturals play the Arkansas Travelers at the new Arvest Ballpark. It was such a nice evening, so many families, so much fun.

Take me out to the ballgame

Alvin & Josh enjoying the game.

Me and my sweetie

This morning when I woke up this is what I found. Casey and Alvin having some "daddy/daughter" time. Alvin fixed the best breakfast as always. See I don't need to get in there and start trying to show out by cooking, he does a GREAT job!!! I love you honey!

After a couple hours of ping pong and American Idol it was back on the road again. We made it home around 4:00 and we are both pooped! Quick trip buts lots of fun!!

I hope everyone has a GREAT week!

That is too funny that your husband said he could hide your gifts in the oven! My husband is usually the breakfast cooker in our family as well. I love the Daddy/daughter picture, and you and Alvin are such a cute couple.
Glad you got to visit your daughter. Get some rest.

We too love those quick little trips over to NW Ark to see our daughter and husband! Just enough time to visit and feel like we've been to the "BIG" city and then back home to the country!!

You have such a sweet family. It sounds like you all had a great time. I with you. Don't hurt Alvin's feelings by trying all the cooking business since he is already so good at it. Ha! Glad you had a great time with your daughter!
