This past weekend we went to the Ozarks in Arkansas and Missouri. It was a fun little Valentines day (weekend) adventure. Neither Andrew or I had been to Arkansas before and we didn't really know what to expect. It was absolutely gorgeous! Austin also wanted to wish everyone a happy Valentines. He says "Thanks Grandma for my outfit. I felt very festive for the 15 minutes I got to wear it before I had my blowout." While we were in Bentonville AR we stopped by the Wal-Mart headquarters. We decided that they really are committed to giving their customers the best deals because their headquarters are well... not that easy on the eyes. We laughed because everything else in the town seemed fairly new and in great shape. We stayed Valentines night in Bentonville and then headed up to Eureka Springs where we rented a cabin for the night. Here is our cabin. We went to Lake shore cabins in case anyone is interested. Check out the view we had from the cabin deck. Are you jealous yet? January and February are the two months that Eureka Springs shuts down so we think that the view would be even more beautiful in June.
Austin loved watching the fire. Check out those rolls! I think I'll take an opportunity to say thanks to the Little man for being SO good. He was in his car seat for almost 3 days straight and hardly cried at all. We think he's pretty amazing! (not that we are biased at all) I think we will go back!

The aliens are coming!

Warning: pictures are not attractive!!!
We tried to sit down to watch an episode of "Chuck" the other night and realized that it was going to be in 3D. Quickly I got out the tin foil, saran wrap, and the red and blue markers and went to work making some 3D glasses. It was a failed effort considering the saran wrap I colored was streaky and the glasses didn't fit behind the ears. We did get some great pictures though! I don't think there's any hope of Austin turning out normal later in life. poor kid.
