Last Friday Maddie and I packed up and headed to Fayetteville to meet Grandma Gail, Aunt Amanda and cousins Evan and Luke. The weekend trip has become a fall tradition. We had fun eating at our favorite restaurants and shopping all weekend. Maddie of course came away with the most clothes! We stayed at the hampton inn and while we were there we tryed out their indoor pool. This was Maddies first time to go swimming, she seemed to like it. Maddie just sat in grandma gail's lap and looked around at everything. She fascinated herself watching my two nephews swim like the little fishes they are. We also headed up to campus to walk around and take some pictures. My nephews Evan and Luke had fun playing in the leaves as you will be able to tell below. I also took Maddies first picture in front of the peace fountain on campus. Who knows maybe someday she will decide to go to school there. Overall our trip was a blast and we can't wait to go back next fall. Maddie and I loved getting to see my side of the family and we miss them already. Hopefully we will get to see them next month when we head to south Arkansas for a early Thanksgiving celebration.
