We headed North to El Dorado, Arkansas on Friday.
It was Marc's 25th class reunion. did I just admit that?
We were on a crunch for time with no time for stopping.
I can't tell you how hard it was to pass sweet shops like these.
He promised we would stop on our way home Sunday. closed.
Guess I will be heading back up there soon. lovin' that scale!!!
Nothing says almost home like passing Chick-a-Dilly LOL
I fell in love with his hometown years ago.
The "Mayberry" like streets were lined with homes still dressed for the 4th.
New and old mixed so well together.
I can never get enough of vintage painted ads on brick walls.
Main street was buzzing with fans and yummy smells.
Maddy could not get over the phone booth LOL
From Main Street to his "old school" we took it all in.
It helps when your old school mate is now the President of the School Board.
He arranged a tour of the school grounds.
Oh the fun!
Oh the laughs!
After the tour, everyone hopped on the school bus.
We took a quick tour of the neighborhoods and how they had changed over the years.
Below is Marc's childhood home.
After our small road tour we stopped at their local park.
There they had BBQ waiting for us.
It was so much fun hearing all of Marc's childhood stories and meeting old friends.
I kid you not...
The sweet guy in the plaid had me rollin'.
He shared stories that involved run away boats, critters and UFO's....
only in Arkansas y'all!! LOL
After two days of reminiscing, we headed home.
Not to miss Marc's Alma Mater...
Marc had so much fun showing Maddy his old stompin' grounds
Maybe one day Maddy will be a Bull Dog Too.
For now, I'm hanging on to that sweet soon to be 7th grader as long as I can.
