It's officially summer, we have a little girl running through the sprinklers.  I bet she will end up in a bubble bath next to warm up.

Monday in Lufkin

Yesterday we started our first full day in Lufkin with Alphabet pancakes, and playing with Stacey's dollhouse.  Then a trip to Academy for a princess fishing pole and a visit to the playground.  After lunch Allison colored a picture for GiGi then quiet time.   Allison caught a fish but had a hard time holding still enough for successful fishing.

Crystal Bridges Museum

On the way home we stopped in Bettonville for lunch and a visit to the Crystal Bridges.

Allison was delighted with the outdoor sculpture but had a hard time with the exhibit.  

Both girls enjoyed the kids area.  Allison cried when we had to leave and repeatedly asked to go back.

You can't say no to this face.  Just look at those eyes!

We love ice cream

Ice cream cones before lunch?  We must be on vacation.  Currently in mountain View, Arkansas we were headed to the cultural center when someone needed a snack.  This town has about 6 ice cream places and we found fantastic homemade ice cream.  Vanilla with M&Ms for Allison, Strawberry Cheesecake for me, and Bat Guano (chocolate with Oreo) for Kevin.

Welcome to the farm

Our 8 hour drive took about 10 hours but we made it to the farm.  We got to help with the evening feeding and milking.  Allison was fascinated watching Grace milk the goats then Allison got to bottle feed several baby goats.  She kept getting so excited she would drop the bottle.  

Yes Allison is in her jammie's.  We left at 7:30am and hit the road while she was still a little sleepy (she had a rough night). At several rest stops we asked if she wanted to put her clothes on but she wanted to stay in jammie's.  At one rest stop she wore her bunny slippers to go inside and hopped like a bunny all the way there and back to the truck.
