There was that week in June in which Serena was spent with her cousin Jo Jo at "Grandma Camp" going to VBS. It seems so long ago now. This long stretch of child free days was kind of hard to wrap our heads around! We made use of the time, though, trying to remember what to do without a little one around and knowing it would be the last such opportunity for a long time but also staying within a budget as many adoption expenses are on the horizon. Fortunately, living in Little Rock makes that pretty easy.
We discovered a new bike trail
checked out a restaurant that had been on the list far too long and certainly worth the wait:
took a self guided pub crawl around downtown, taking a quick stop at our wedding reception site, the Terry House:
and lastly, drove down to Hot Springs Village because we missed our girl, and took a quick swim in a refreshing lake, soaking in the gorgeous AR sunset on the way home:
Serena had a great time at Grandma camp, brought home ALL THE VBS crafts along with a T shirt and DVD (VBS has stepped up its game since we were tikes) and it was good to have her home .again.
