On the River

Last weekend, we decided to get out of the city, so we went to a place that is near and dear....Arkansas!  Not just anywhere in Arkansas though....we went to a little spot right in-between Mt. Ida and Pencil was great.  We stayed at the Rocky Shoals Resort and spent a peaceful weekend on the beautiful Ouachita River.

We fished

Huck Finn style...

live bait

we even caught a few little ones....Jane wasn't sure what to think of it!

 We canoed:

and spent the days outside.  

A highlight of the trip was that, since we were staying just a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from the great Camp Ozark, we got together with our good friends - Carson & Hilary and new baby Cooper (handsome little guy!) as well as the one and only SuperDave (or as my kids dubbed him....SuperDavid).

Since we were in the area, we also made the short drive in to Mt. Ida to eat at the Dairyette.  Oh how I have missed you Dairyette.

We discovered partway through our stay, that we could walk across the river.  Secily loved it.  

A perfect, peaceful weekend away.

You're photo skills are incredible!
Nice job on the bokeh.
That award you won at choir tonight was well suited. What else are you holding out on...
