We got up a little early this morning. We had scheduled horseback riding today and needed to make it to Hot Springs, AR (or there abouts) for our appointment. We had a great time and the kids were thrilled since they had been looking forward to it for the whole trip.
We really liked the fact that the paths wound through the woods and through a couple of creeks. There were fallen trees that we had to go around and branches to duck under and lots of hills. It made the ride so much more interesting.
After our ride we drove on to Texarkana where we met friends for dinner. It was so good to see them. I know our kids don't remember but they used to all play together.....almost every day!
We had intended to head on to Dallas for the night, but when we got back in the car we all decided that we were tired and it was just too late to drive anymore so we stayed found a place to stay for the night.
We got up the next morning and headed home. When we stopped to grab some lunch, though, it occurred to us that we were going to hit Austin right around 5:00 and traffic would be terrible. We couldn't decided what to do but finally decided to stop and see a movie to kill some time. I know, who does that on their way home from vacation?
We finally made it home and are so glad to be here!!
