Visiting Iowa

This week we are in Iowa, meeting with people in the area to share about our ministry. Ruby Kay has been getting extra time with her Nina and Papa, and is loving playing outside. The temperature here is a lot colder, so we try to bundle up little girl before she goes outside.
 I love this navy striped hoodie of hers, but if she isn't wearing a bow or girly pants- she often gets called "Buddy". My Mom and I laughed about it last night- wondering if we should dress her in more girly clothes, or just let Ruby Kay be called "Buddy".
We have one full week before we head back home. We are trying to enjoy Iowa before we head back home to Arkansas!

Exploring Little Rock

A few weeks ago, Ben and I spent time in Little Rock for work. On Saturday, we took a break from appointments, and toured the city with our good friends, Daniel and Lauren. They first took us to the Old Mill, which was gorgeous. The opening scene from Gone With the Wind was filmed there, and had unique structures made out of concrete to look like wood, iron, and stone.
This bridge was made completely from concrete, but was so beautiful. I love the reflection of the bridge on the water.
After we visited the Mill, we went to the old State House. After living in Arkansas for the past three years, it was fun to learn more about the beginnings of the State, We also loved the River Market, especially the walking bridges over the Arkansas River.
We are thankful for a fun day exploring with some of our favorite friends. Hope we can repay the favor to them when we are in Stillwater!
