Hog Heaven

We've been in Northwest Arkansas since Wednesday. My dear cousin Amanda got married on Saturday so the whole Link crew decided to make a vacation out of it! My parents went down much earlier, but the Reeds, LeBlancs and Links headed up there mid-week. Our kids loved it because they got to miss a few more days of school...not bad since Spring Break was last week!!!

We stayed in Bella Vista, a community where my parents have a timeshare and drove into Siloam Springs to visit with my Mema and other family that were in town for the wedding. We really enjoyed our time together and thanks to all of the good cooks in our family, we ate and ate and ate. On Friday night we introduced our spouses and kids to a Link family tradition and had dinner at the Venesian Inn in a little community called Tontitown.

Although the weather got pretty chilly, it didn't stop my Dad, Bryan and Matt from playing lots of golf and Peyton and David got in one day of good tennis play.  The kids enjoyed being outside playing at the park and exploring.

The wedding was great and Amanda was a BEAUTIFUL bride. The look on her husband's face when he first saw her walking down the aisle was priceless! The reception was held in the really neat community center downtown and was so pretty decorated in the wedding colors of pink and gray. And the wedding cake...SO good!

We had a wonderful time and need to make sure that we don't wait so long to all get together as a family again. I took tons of pictures but here are some my favorites.

Tennis anyone?
