Mountain Home, AR

Every year the boys (Charlie, Sam, Scott and Grandpa) take a trip down to visit Gene and Dorothy for fishing and fun. It's one of the things everyone looks forward to the most, and the trip never fails to disappoint (even when the fishing is slim).

The boys love "Meow" ~
Sam walking with "Buddy" ~
What a handsome boy~
There are horses in the pasture outside of Gene's front yard~
Early morning visit to "Wheel" (Sam gave the horse that nick-name)~

Sam is still in his pajamas~

The view from Gene's front porch - Scott's favorite place for coffee ~
Sam caught this bass (the only one of the trip); Meow is licking her chops~

Sam with his guide~

Dorothy (the pie lady), dotes on the boys. She emailed a couple of weeks before the trip asking them to put in their pie order. Of course the lemon, cherry, and apple pies, along with a white cake with chocolate frosting, and homemade ice cream, were a hit!
Sam enjoyed looking at the robin's eggs Dorothy found in her yard~

While Charlie was enthralled with the hummingbirds~

The boys get to feast like kings while in AR. Every visit they have dinners of quail, ribs and something special at Dorothy's. They watch a lot of hockey and snack on more junk in those 4 or 5 days than the rest of the year combined. It truly is a man's paradise!
