Visiting with Family
We have missed visiting with family over the last nine years. Now that we don't have jobs and invalid care tying us down, we hope to make up for lost time.
So earlier in the week we headed out to see the Arkansas crew while the grands were between trips and camps. Our main objective on this trip was to deliver grandfather's rocker-recliner to Son-2.
He's a work-from-home freelance journalist who stands at his computer (and cycles while he works). But everyone needs a comfortable place to relax and put the feet up once in a while, don't you think?
I like tabletop games ... and there is never a shortage of game-playing in this family! They interrupted their annual summer tabletop tournament to allow Grandpa and Grandma to play along. First on the bill was 3Up/3Down, an easy, fast-moving card game -- so fast I didn't have time to take a picture.
Next up was Ticket to Ride/Heart of Africa, a train-building geography lesson.

I like live theater. Especially musicals! Out first night in Arkansas we were treated to an in-the-round production of The Music Man.
Aside from the fact that the performers were excellent (I cried at the end), I was fascinated by the choreography of the set changes right before our eyes. I enjoyed every minute of the production!
I like local boutique restaurants.
Located next to a college campus, Mosaique had a clean, modern, family-friendly atmosphere and a nice variety of dinner choices. Absolutely no pretenses .... aside from the name ...
