Celebrations in Hot Springs

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Anniversary to us

Saturday was Hubby's Birthday and it just so happened that our niece and her husband from Maryland were down visiting her brothers in Dallas and Little Rock.

What a perfect time for us to meet and spend time together and celebrate at the same time.

Three years ago to the day, we were all in Maryland for a most beautiful wedding of this sweet couple.
 We met in Hot Springs, Arkansas which was a beautiful mid-way point for all of us.  Younger brother, Glen was unable to be with us due to having had surgery last week.
We had a delicious lunch at Fisherman's Wharf while watching the ducks and boats on the water.
 Afterward, we crossed the lake and boarded the Belle of Hot Springs for a leisurely tour of the beautiful Lake Hamilton and all the gorgeous water-front mansions.
Being Labor Day weekend, there were plenty of boaters, skiers, and party barges out on the water.  And, it was a perfectly gorgeous day to do just that.

 This is the rear view of the Hamilton House, completed in 1931 and now a B&B.  You can read about it HERE.  It sounds gorgeous and should you want it for a Honeymooners Haven, it can be yours for $995.  It just might be worth it.
 We were so grateful to have this time with our family and celebrate special events together.
 Today is mine and Hubby's 52nd wedding anniversary.  Yea Us!
Then and now!
And we are more in love now than we thought possible then.
Happy Anniversary, my love!
