Out on the Town with Our Littles

Main Street Library basement book sale?  Books for 50 cents and less? I'm there. And this weekend, so was my willing family.

Only picture I took, sadly, is below. It's a shame, because it was a picture worthy sight. Loads of people squeezed between loads and loads of books. Isaac was a trooper, even though strolling a stroller through huge crowds of bargain hunters isn't necessarily his thing. I felt a little better about pushing my agenda after he found a book he wanted, a Jerry Seinfeld book.

While downtown, we went to the Farmer's Market. We saw some familiar faces and got some purple hull peas, which are one of my faves. I remember shelling them at my Pop's house when I was little. About the closest I ever got to farm life. Which I'm still a little bitter about. I feel like I should have grown up on a farm. Who thinks that?!? I'm a little wierd. Maybe one day when I grow up, I'll end up on a farm.

Next stop around town, was All Aboard. Have you been yet? Super fun for my kids. I would reccomend going. Charlie was glued to the overhead train tracks the entire meal. Isaac and I got the spinach salad with chicken and it was really fresh and delicious. We will go back for lunch another Saturday, I'm sure.

The food comes around the tracks and drops down to your table! So cool!


Sometimes we will need to get out of the house, and have run out of fun ideas, and we end up at the mall. Like we did on Saturday. It's super close to our house, and its a great place to people watch:) My husband is so great... I'll even get to run in and out of a couple stores while Isaac plays with the kids at the tiny little area where they have some itty bitty rides. Our kids literally will play there for an hour straight. All the germ-worried moms are gagging right now, I'm betting. Sorry:) This sorry excuse of an indoor playground reminds me of a super fun indoor playground at the Galleria Mall in Dallas. Why don't we have one of those?!??? We need one. Who around here is a mall planner???

Here are a couple pics from the Galleria playground that I am still thinking about. It was so kid and mom friendly. Free, too.

And here is our park plaza version.

Our little trip around Little Rock was actually way more fun than we had expected it to be. How nice it is to get out of the house and out of the heat AND spend some quality time together as a family! We may not be the biggest, or the coolest city, but our family quite enjoys it here.

The wonderful friends and family we have nearby don't hurt either:)
