You can't fight in here, this is the war room!*

This past weekend I was able to knock out two more states towards my 50.  Friday, G-sauce and I headed to Tennessee and Arkansas.  Our flight left at 6:00 in the a.m. and I woke up at 5...and still had to go pick up Chris cause he was going to borrow my car for the weekend (don't be so shocked...okay, be shocked).  On the way to the airport I kept thinking that G-sauce was never going to let me travel with her again!

We got through security and were on our way to the gate when they called our names.  We were the very last passengers aboard (this happened with Jordan when we went to Texas).  We got to Memphis, got the rental car, and went to Arkansas.

This is pretty much how I felt about Arkansas:
It was cold and rainy.  We grabbed lunch and then got stuck in traffic.

For a while.

First stop in Arkansas was the Clinton Library.

That must be artificial sun coming through the windows because I don't remember there being any sun.

P.S. that little man I am holding is Stanley.  He was sent to G-sauce by her nephew for a school project.  She's supposed to take pictures of him places and send them back.  What a perfect person to send this guy to, she travels a lot!

We went to the gift shop and then on to the biggest dam bridge you've ever seen.

No- really, it's a big dam bridge:
And you just thought I had a potty mouth.
The bridge is at the back of the photo.

The dam and the bridge together.

"Now down slow bikes"...what does that mean??  I never could read these things right.
We drove back to Memphis after that.  Checked in at the hotel that was impossible to get to because of the one way streets.  We went to Panera to get something to eat...we could see it from the room but because of these roads it took a long time to get there.  We were better off just running across the busy street.

Coming up: one of my new favorite places: Memphis.

Flat Stanley!! My niece had him. She sent him to my sister's best friend in Wyoming. Like 8 months ago and he hasn't come back yet. My niece is still sad about this!

Haha! Yes, Flat Stanley. I called him Stanley Steamer.
