We’ve been having such a great time in Little Rock these past 3 weeks! We are staying at an RV park that abuts the Arkansas River and is just a pedestrian bridge away from downtown Little Rock. We look out onto these cool industrial looking bridges and get both sunsets and sunrises right from our windows. At night the bridges are lit up and have pretty dancing lights. The RV park itself is not fancy nor is there much grass but all the grass it does have is right in our back yard between our RV and the river. Levi is also pretty partial to rocks and gravel so that makes the RV park toddler friendly in our books.
Just off the back section of the RV park is a gate that connects to the pedestrian bridge. And just on the other side of the gate they are in the process of assembling a new bridge so we get to watch construction workers and cranes and big trucks very often, another Levi favorite.
But probably our favorite part of Little Rock has been the time spent with our fellow RV friends. One of Geoff’s coworkers and his wife, the main inspiration for us getting the RV, have been here for our whole stay. It’s been such a blessing to have friends next door. We’ve been able to hang out and go on some field trips together. It’s been pretty much perfect, especially on the days when I’d run out of ways to entertain a toddler and the morning sickness was strong, I called on our favorite neighbor for backup. Sadly they pulled out earlier today, we will definitely miss them!
As a family we’ve had fun exploring the downtown area, local parks, and the Little Rock Zoo. We’ve been on a LOT of walks, visited several museums and even eaten a few meals out, at real-ish restaurants, with Levi.
We hope you are all enjoying your Thanksgiving, we are giving our little oven a workout and enjoying a bit of a progressive-course-Thanksgiving at our house. 🙂 We are thankful for God’s provision, protection and guiding hand in our lives. I read a blog this week that, while simple, seemed to hit me between the eyes, she said “The secret to contentment is to be thankful for the blessings you do have instead of focusing on what you don’t have.” Well it reminds me that I have been all too focused on not feeling excellent, the challenges of parenting, and a number of other things. Sometimes the allure of the world and societal expectations draws my heart away from the miraculous truth of the gift of my salvation. I hope you know this gift personally too.
