Long Weekend Fun

I don’t even know where to begin this morning.

We had SO MUCH FUN over the Memorial Day weekend and I’ve been dying to talk to you all about it but now that it’s time? I guess I’ll just start at the beginning and if it goes on too long feel free to bail. (I’ll love you anyway.)

We drove down to Devil’s Den State Park in Arkansas Sunday afternoon. And even before we got there, I knew the trails might be just a teensy bit challenging.

Monday morning (after the fog burned off) we abandoned our coffee and headed for the park.

We decided to explore the Yellow Rock trail first.

Three miles? You ask. Why are you moaning about three measly miles? Ummm… Three miles straight up pretty much kicked my butt.

We started here.

And ended up here.

Good thing Phil was wearing a red shirt. You’d never see him otherwise.

The run down was a LOT faster than the trail up had been – no kidding.

Of course we brought along our furry trail runner and by the end he was completely covered in sand. Had to have a little wash before we would let him in the car again.

Clearly this was his FAVORITE part of the day.

We spent the rest of the day picnicing and playing on some of the other trails. Found some little waterfalls.

And some bigger waterfalls.

And generally had a wonderful day. Came home and SLEPT, but can’t wait to go back.
