Labor Day in Little Rock

After a hiatus that was seriously way too long, I am happy to announce that I'm back to blogging.

Whew. It sure does feel good.

I almost gave it up, but have decided to stick it out and see what happens. Thanks to the few of you that keep coming back. And a special thanks to my followers, even though few in number. You make me feel oh, so good.

I've got some fun things planned for the upcoming weeks. I hope you keep coming back to check things out.

Over the holiday weekend, we were grateful to have Kyle's parents from Utah with us. They flew into Little Rock last Thursday night and were here through Tuesday. We had a really great time.

I wanted to share some pictures from our Labor Day in Little Rock. I am really enjoying our new camera that my husband brought home from Japan. I am IN LOVE with snapping pictures, and Picnik.com has become one of the most visited sites on my laptop.

Here are a few of favorite pictures that I have played with on Picnik.

This is a shot of the old train bridge in downtown Little Rock. This was taken from inside the William J. Clinton Presidential Library.























This is the Old State House in Little Rock. It is the oldest surviving state capital west of the Mississippi. It now houses an extensive museum of Arkansas culture and history. Admission is free.














































This is the Arkansas state flag flying in the courtyard area of the Old State House. I thought that this was a really neat shot.



















After we left the downtown area of Little Rock, we crossed the bridge over the Arkansas River into North Little Rock to make a stop at the Old Mill. The Old Mill is a historic re-creation of an 1800's water powered grist mill. It was used in the opening scenes of the classic movie, "Gone With The Wind".

Me and my wonderful, and might I say handsome, husband Kyle.






















A family shot. Kyle's parents, Del and Debbie (standing behind him), and my parents, Betty and Mark, and of course Kyle and I.


























We had such a great day. The weather here as been beautiful with temperatures in the mild 70's.

Thanks for stopping by. I promise that I will be back tomorrow. :)

Much Love,
