We are back! We had such a great time in Shreveport and Texarkana. It was kind of a quick trip, but we stayed busy! Thursday morning, me, Addi and Emma left Little Rock at 8 a.m. I wanted to leave earlier, but didn't make it out of bed till about 7! We headed to Texarkana to meet Mur and then leave for Shreveport. Addi did pretty good in the car, she got a little restless about 30 minutes outside of Texarkana, but luckily Emma was in the back keeping her entertained.

When we got to Shreveport, we were all ready to get out of the car for awhile, especially Addi! I was so mad though because I had left her stroller in my car and forgot to transfer it to Mur's. This meant we had to rent a stroller. Addi liked it because it was like a car, but I was really missing our stroller! We ate lunch at Saltgrass, one of our favorite places. It was so good! Addi was fussing all through lunch until Mur took her, and after that she just sat in Mur's lap and ate pieces of bread that Mur gave her! Ha!

After lunch we started shopping! We hit up a couple of our favorite stores and got some really good deals!

Addi was getting pretty tired so we headed home. She fell asleep literally one minute of being in the car! When we got back to Texarkana we ate at this great place called Ivan's Bistro that has the BEST guacamole ever! It was so good! Granddad met us for dinner and Addi was very happy to see him! We all ordered either chicken or shrimp alfredo for dinner. Addi decided she wanted to try it so she reached over and got some of Mur's. She ate a couple of noodles and then just started playing with it. I think she might be ready for some "grown-up" food soon!

We got home and we let Addi crawl around to burn off some energy before bed. She also got to play with Sampson and I think she loves him as much as she loves Dixie! Sampson was so good and laid really still while Addi crawled over and started petting him! She wasn't even rough like she is with Dixie she was being really gentle! We also got to see Mur's garden. Her backyard is BEAUTIFUL! I can only hope one day that my yard looks half as good as her.

Addi got a bath in the sink and then we put her to bed. She was real tired and went to bed pretty fast. She only woke up once which is very good when were traveling. We woke up the next morning and Addi went and played with Mur while I got to sleep in! It was great! Addi took a nap outside in a makeshift crib, she slept in a laundry basket that was lined with towels. So cute!

Once me and Emma got ready and packed up we headed to Ironwood Grill for lunch. It was very yummy. After lunch we went and got pedicures! Addi was asleep for that part. She woke up towards the end and had a great time playing with Mr.Larry and Mrs.Tina.

We headed home after that and Addi was so happy to see her Daddy! She really missed him and Dixie. We did have plans to go eat dinner with some friends, but Addi did not think that was a good idea! She was so tired and would not eat anything at all! I put her to bed pretty early and Josh took Emma back to Skipper. He was so sweet to bring me Dixie Cafe for dinner. I know that may sound gross to some people, but it's one of my favorite places to get chicken strips! They are so good! After he got back I went to TJMaxx to return something and Target to get Addi some formula. She hasn't wanted to nurse hardly at all lately, but has been taking a bottle so I think she might be done nursing. :( Anyways, tomorrow we are headed to Searcy for Dustin's birthday party. I'm excited about swimming and eating some good food! Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend!
