Labor Day Weekend

Over the weekend we have a our wonderful friends come to visit! We saw them last year on this same weekend! Candace and David lived here in NWA for a few years then got a chance to move back to their home town in TN. So off they went :( . Even though I know how much they LOVe being back home and close to their families, I miss them terribly. Candace and I became such great friends in a short period of time.
I am ALWAYS thankful when they make the long drive back to see their old co-workers/friends and us! They stay at our house and I just love having them!
We had a fun, relaxing weekend filled with shopping and eating!! We managed to fight the crowds at "Cabela's". We walked around for a bit but found a spot at the fish tank. We figured they had one but we kept telling Amelia we were going to see
fish. She kept yelling "I see fishy now!"
Every where we went over the weekend Amelia was silly. She was always well-behaved but just loud at some points. I think she was showing off for our guests! Thankfully, she is good 90% of the time!
Candace and I enjoyed shopping a few places at the mall while the guys entertained Amelia for us! It was so nice to send time together!! After shopping we ate there at the mall. Amelia was sleeping for part of dinner in her stroller, but woke when the food came! :)
Sunday morning I made breakfast thn Candace and I went to a store called "true treasures" it is one of my
Favs! We also made a stop at Target before going back home. At dinner on Sunday she was banging the table saying "I eat pig... I eat pig!". Since she doesn't eat much of anything she was lying. The kid won't eat like she needs too. The restaurant had paintings of pigs hung everywhere and she LOVED it. She enjoyed waving and saying hello To the staff as they walked by. "Personality Plus" is what I call her!
After dinner that night we took them to see Crystal Bridges. Since it was after 6 on Sunday we couldn't go in but we walked the trails and went to the lookout point. While we were on the trail and we saw whole family of deer! They weren't even scared of us and our loud toddler! I couldn't believe it.
Overall we had a wonderful time and I am already looking forward to the next time we get to see Candace and David. I am hoping we can get out to see them and their "neck of the woods".
