Little Rock Day

We got tickets for the Travelers game again with A Field of Angels (Canyon's baseball group).  So we headed out early to do some shopping first.  Unfortunately 2 malls later, we still could not find summer type shoes for Canyon that can fit his shoe inserts :(

We did however lose Canyon again!  We left a clothing store called Rainbow.  I saw him walk out behind us when I glanced back.  3 stores down, he was gone.  So we double and triple checked the 6 shops we past (both sides of the mall).  Nothing.  Finally an employee in Buckle said she would call security.  He arrived and I explained Canyon to him, what he was wearing, that he is 16 and my height but basically non-verbal.... we started walking and got about 15 steps away and the guard looked down and sideways.  I followed his gaze to see Canyon's shoes under the photo booth curtain right smack dab in the middle of everything.  OMG!  He was right there for the last 15 minutes just having a chill out in the dark booth!!  I pulled back the curtain and said, 'Canyon, we lost you! ' He just laughed.  I said 'I had to call a policeman to find you!' and pulled the curtain back so he could see the guard.  Canyon jumped up and hugged his neck and said, 'oh hello.'

OMG!  I have got to get this kid chipped!

Sahara took this when I was calling her to say he had been found.

Then on to the game!
Our admittance is free, they feed us hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, popcorn, soda and water.  All we can eat for the first 2 hours.

It was pretty hot until the sun went behind the building.  The pavilion is behind left field.

So we got to see the different 2 minute in-between shows get ready to hit the field.  

Some group pictures.

Then after the game is an amazing fire work show.  We were so close to it because between us and the show was only a 100 foot grassy area.

Only Child Syndrome

This little poop head has a case of only child syndrome. He hasn't slept through the night, whining and barking throwing a fit for the last week. And has been leaving little gifts behind in the morning. Little poops and little pees. We're going to have to crate him again like he was when he was a puppy. Hopefully that will fix things. Stinky little poopy face boy.

Petit Jean Car Show

Sahara's idea to head to the annual car show and swap on the mountain. It was so hot!!
Canyon liked taking pics of the cars he enjoyed on his 'phone'.
At the over look. Earlier this year, human remains had been found at the bottom of this drop off :( Some man that had been missing for years I believe.
At the point of this rise is a house. Who lives up there? How do they get to their house? The 360 view must be awesome!
Sahara and Canyon on the other side of the look out. In 1 1/2 weeks, we will be camping at the lake up here :) I hope the weather is kind to us.


Sahara got out her embroidery thread that she got several Christmases ago. She decided to fancy up her ear buds.
She started in the morning and it took several hours on and off working on it.
Done that evening and ready to use.
She thought maybe she could make a bunch and sell them. But to be worth her time, $5 buds would have to be sold for $15. But they are cute!!

Hiking Dardanelle Rock

Sahara suggested we go hiking today. It was 11 am so I decided we should pack a lunch and test out our new vaca backpacks as well.
It was 91 with a heat index of 101. Thank goodness for a breeze and trees.
Didn't take long for an injury. Poor Sahara.
Water break.
We finally made it to the top 45 minutes later.
Malaki was a good little dare-devil climber.
It was so hot and so slow going with very slippery shale gravel. Finally! The exit sign.
Back at the house. Sahara's leg.
And thigh.
A little peroxide for good measure. It was pretty dirty.
Mom's knees where none too happy either.
I had to ice pack them for 30 minutes when we returned.
But, we got a hike in on this otherwise kick back Sunday.

Movie Wednesday

Since we got a movie theater upgrade about a year ago, going there is much nicer but more expensive. We did see San Andreas last week and will see the new Jurasic next week. But $30 for a movie is rediculous (and that's with mom bringing her big purse for snacking goodies!). So excited to have $1 summer movies now at the new theater!

Last baseball and bbq

We haven't gotten to play for awhile because of storms, but it was clear and sunny today. The hottest day of the year as well. The humidity was near 100 too.
Each team played only one inning before getting trophies.
Canyon coming into home.
A celebratory cross over the plate.
Trophy time!
Canyon and his buddy Briar.
The 'RED' team. CANYON, BRIAR, DESHAWN, CODY, CORY, KAILEN, BEN ZION, TAMERA, MATTHEW. Then we had a bbq but no pictures at that. Til next year!
