My Arkansas Trip home

I just got back from visiting family in Arkansas where I grew up. I got to spend eight days there. It was a really good trip home. And we also spent a couple of days in a bed and breakfast just to get away for ourselves. It was a wonderful B&B. It was a house  that was built in 1890. Our room was awesome with a huge jacuzzi tub. Which I spent a lot of time in. There was a awesome front porch swing and a very loving little black cat at the Inn. The B&B was in Hot Springs, AR near were some of my family lives so it was very convenient for us to stay there and visit family at the same time. During our time in Hot Springs we just kinda hung out. We ate home cooked food at a local restaurant. Shopped a little in Historic downtown in the little quaint shops there. And spent a lot of time on the front porch swing with the cat at the Inn. We also spent some time shopping at some local rock shops. I was trying to find some unusual rocks for a project I want to start working on. And I wanted some stones from where I grew up at. This project I want to start is about making crosses while you pray. So I found several beads, stones and rock from where I grew up to start my cross. The book for this is call Making Crosses it was a book my friend gave me for my birthday a few weeks ago. 
The other time spent in AR was with my sister and my niece's and nephews. I also enjoyed getting to go to church with my sister, my sister's mother-in-law and my niece's. Also visiting my Mom and some of my husbands family. It was so nice to see them all. I enjoyed be able to spend time with my sister and enjoy home cooked meals while I was home. These are a few pictures from my trip.
