Big Sister came up on Friday night and we decided to go out on the town early Saturday morning. We started out early Saturday morning by going to the Argenta Farmers Market. It was also the Arkansas Food Bloggers Bake Sale so we got delicious Arkansas grown fruits and vegetables but we also got some sweet treats from this blogger.
After the farmers market we went to the Old Mill to goof off and take some pictures. It felt so great outside, it was nice to get out and enjoy it. I love the Old Mill and hopefully I will do a “real” shoot there soon!
After the Old Mill we went to the Painted Pig in the Heights and met up with Tim to do some pottery painting. I love doing this, I painted a plate in 2005 and I still use it every time I make myself a “fancy” meal, and it still looks great. Big sister painted a sock monkey, Tim painted an owl, and I painted a surprise for a good friends upcoming birthday! It was fun and really affordable I recommend going to the Painted Pig to have some fun!
After the Painted Pig we went to the Clinton Library and Museum to go to the Hidden Art of Dr. Suess exhibit, but first we were starving so we ate at “Forty Two”. It was so good, and affordable! I had fantastic grilled cheese and smoked applewood bacon panini and house made chips, it was fantastic. The Dr. Suess exhibit was pretty neat and showed some of his earlier advertising work. Also, there was an exhibit titled “Revolution and Rebellion: Wars, Words, and Figures”. It was interesting because this exhibit were figurines of historical people. It was neat but they were eerily accurate and I don’t know exactly how I feel about that.
After that, it was time for a nap! Even as I write, I have red stained hand from chopping up fresh strawberries and I’m watching big sister sleep on my couch, which is a pretty good way to wind up a Saturday.
Did you do anything exciting?
