This weekend, Scott, Harper and I headed down to South Arkansas to visit Scott's family. We left a little early on Friday so we got to Russelleville just in time for dinner which I was excited about because I wanted to eat at Whatta-burger. (Not the chain - this is an old family restaurant right across from Arkansas Tech University). We ate there last time we went to Magnolia with Laurie and Steve.
But what I found out on this trip is that they have FRIED PIES!!!! These ladies in my parents church used to make the best fried chocolate pies when we would have church potlucks and this preacher's daughter would knock everyone down to get first in line to get one. I saved the pie for when we got back in the car and I wish I had known how good it was going to be or I would have bought more. OH MY it was good!!!!
We got to Magnolia Friday night just in time for homemade ice cream - does the eating ever stop? Saturday morning we got up and got ready and after Harper took a morning nap - Scott's mom and I headed to the town square to shop while Scott and his dad worked at the deer camp. This cute children's store (Sara's) was having a 50% off sale and Judy bought Harper these two PRECIOUS outfits for when she gets to be 3 or 4! I can't imagine what she will be like at that age!
We had her down for an afternoon nap and I peeked and this is what I saw! Can you see that little head peeking over the edge of the crib? She was in no mood for a nap!
Saturday night we went out to eat one of my other very favorite foods - FRIED FISH! Only since Harper is allergic I couldn't eat it. Sad. But I did get to eat some hushpuppies! I could eat my weight in hushpuppies (which at this point would be a LOT!)
Scott's mom is the best gardener. She definitely has a green thumb. I feel bad because Scott married a black thumb. I have no interest or talent with plants. Scott took their picture this morning in front of these huge flowers she has grown (she would have to tell you the name but they only open at night and briefly in the morning).
We had a great weekend with his family as always and Harper was SUCH a good little traveler both ways. I'm so glad because it makes us want to go more places with her. And P.S. we stopped on the way home in Russelleville just so I could get some more fried pies and I won't tell you how many I bought but I'm going to have to go on a serious diet starting tomorrow! :-)
