Our $4 Valentine...

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day. We started the day with yummy strawberry muffins which thrilled the girls! They kept saying, "these are yummy cupcakes." "I love having cupcakes for breakfast!" I love little kids! :o) After a fun morning of cartoons and painting, we headed to North Little Rock for a movie. We were a little early so we stopped by The Old Mill first. The Old Mill was in the movie, Gone With the Wind. It was the girls first visit to the beautiful park. They LOVED it! Flowers, waterfalls and cool bridges...what's not to love? Here are a few of my favorite pictures from The Old Mill:

Notice the girls are holding arms instead of hands...both of their hands were full of "treasures"

Daddy found Hillary Ashton a couple beautiful flowers that had fallen on the ground. I don't think she would have appreciated a dozen roses more that she did those two flowers!

The girls headed down a trail in the "woods" and we stayed on the main path.

Once Sophie Le realized we weren't right behind her, she got upset. Of course, daddy was quick to the rescue!

After the girls explored the mill, we went to see BOLT. For those in Central Arkansas, did you know you can go to the movies for 50 cents? I had no idea! It was the best $2 we have spent in awhile :o)

As we were crossing the Arkansas River back into Little Rock, we decided to stop off in the River Market and let the girl's play at the new playground. It was really fun. And since we were already downtown, we decided to take a trolly ride.

Here is Sophie Le at the park...she loves a good sucker too :o)

Is it just me or do these smiles look fake?
