I bought this bird for David in Warrenton. And he seemed to be pretty tickled with it! I feared that the bird, Lucky, wouldn't travel so well, so David got this present a couple days early.
We then made the drive to Eureka Springs. We stayed in The Beaver Lake Cottages. From the beautiful views of the lake and mountains, to the hummingbird feeder inviting the hummingbirds, to the fine linens, to the live plants in the cottage, we were spoiled rotten for the 4 days we were there. I highly recommend this place!
It rained most of the time we were there, and it was chilly. So, the fireplace was a nice comfort.
More gifts for David. This one was a package put together by my sister.
Sunday, David's birthday, we took a roadtrip to Ozark, Missouri and ate lunch at Lambert's, Home of Throwed Rolls. What an experience! By this time, I should mention, David and I were both suffering the symptoms of colds. I had congestion, sore throat, coughs, sneezes, fatigue. David was feeling run down. Lambert's picked us both up. Lively music. Neat atmosphere. Great home cookin'. This guy's job is to throw rolls. What a hoot!
David's meal came in a skillet.
When I mentioned to our waitress that it was David's birthday, we got $10 off the meal! Wow! He was also given a cinnamon roll with balloons and I couldn't resist taking his picture next to this t-shirt "Hot Buns".
We then headed over to Leola's, within walking distance. Do you know Jan? She is a sweetheart! I love family, and the fact that this business is founded by 3 sisters and a niece appeals to me. Wanna see some wonderful pictures of the store? Well, you know that David took a lot! I've been known to steal his pictures for my blog. So, he was sure to post up a blog before I could snatch them up! Check it out.
