Menu Plan Monday

After a very busy week of school and shuttling the boy to band and cross country, we got to have a fabulous weekend. We have been having abnormally cool weather for the end of August, which we had to take advantage of and spend time outdoors. Saturday evening we grilled out at Fellows Lake in Springfield and put the canoe on the water. Today, my parents joined us for a trip to down to Arkansas to go hiking at Hideout Hollow. We drove down to Jasper first and ate lunch at the Ozark Cafe, which celebrates its 100th birthday in September. Then we took the scariest drive of my life on a "shortcut" from Jasper to Compton down the most frightening dirt road that NOBODY travels (straight up the mountain, switchbacks on the edge of cliffs, etc.). We did arrive in one piece, and got to hike at Hideout Hollow. I'm not sure that my parents will ever join us again after that car ride. We ended our wonderful weekend with an amazing dinner at home of grilled New York strip steaks. Yum! Here are some pictures of our weekend adventures so that you can see that I really do more than just menu plan. ;)
