So we did. We let the girls play on the playground and walked a few trails. Ate our picnic lunch and walked some more.
I grew up near Pinnacle and didn't know about half the trails around the mountain. We're definitely doing some exploring around there this summer.
Here are some pictures... and you'll notice a recurring item in some of them: a pair of purple glasses I bought the girls from the $1 store.
Gorgeous day, gorgeous child
Glasses make Isabelle ponder deep thoughts
I noticed that Olivia's clothing matched the graffiti.
Yeah, the glasses again.
A Dodo tree! (I have to say it makes me really sad that people are such jerks that they'd carve up such a beautiful tree)
Man, I love Arkansas.
We didn't have any quarters to make it work, but she still loved playing with it.
And this was when Zoe used her psychic powers to knock Daddy down the mountain ;)
After our second little trail walk, we eventually headed home, when the girls started whining they were hungry. Dinner was pretty light and the girls were too occupied to eat much, so we decided to stop at get something to eat. Our waitress's chest (not her boobs, higher - like a few inches below her collarbones) looked bedazzled. It was like she had 6 tiny little blue gems set into her chest. I was so curious. The skin looked slightly red, like a recent piercing, but I was like "how on earth do you pierce your chest?" Well, I ended up googling it while we waited on our food and you really can pierce your chest. They're called dermal piercings. (The link is safe - no pics of "private" piercings LOL) I'm so uncool... why have I never even heard of this before? It was actually really neat looking. My husband usually thinks piercings are really gross, but he admitted that it was kind of cool.
I learn something new every day....
