4th of July

Saturday, we went to the Frontier Fourth of July celebration at the Arkansas Historic Museum. We'd never visited this museum before even though I pass it, coming off the interstate almost every week. I was surprised how big the property really is because it just seemed like a tiny building tucked into downtown. There are restored historic homes to tour, live gardens, and actors dressed up 19th century style.
There were old fashioned toys, games, watermelon and lemon-aid to enjoy...there are more cute pictures of them on the Arkansas Democrat Gazette website. Here are a couple of here or here, and there are a few others, as well.
Post fireworks treat...Raspberry flavored Natural Desserts Vegan Jel, which was full of fresh, chopped strawberries and blueberries and Soyatoo whipped cream on the side. A yummy alternative to bone/connective tissue Jello. :)


  1. I love the picture of Dash in the Gazette! He always makes Scott and I smile...

  2. Oh!! We did that one year! When we only had ONE child!! Ha!

  3. The vegan gel looks so festive and pretty! Sounds like a fun day :)
