Our Weekend Adventures in Fayetteville

This past weekend we visited family in Fayetteville, Arkansas which is home to the University of Arkansas (Go Hogs!). We had a great time seeing my husbands side of the family and the boys got to play with their older cousin. While we were there we took a trip to Terra Studios, an amazing glass blowing studio and art park. They make the glass "Bluebirds of Happiness" there and local artists showcase their skills in the art park and labyrinth, which is free for everyone to enjoy. It's a whimsical and folksy way to spend a beautiful spring afternoon, and we did just that. My mother-in-law packed a picnic and we spent the afternoon looking at the art and wandering around with the kids.
There are mosaics, statues, fountains, and beautiful blown glass arangements all over the grounds

The little people, called "Terrans", are adorable and they have little fairy villages all over the place

 Liam and his cousin, Corwin, had tea while Owen posed in a garden

Last Saturday was also #TableTopDay! Nerds everywhere rejoiced. Nathan, my brother-in-law and two of my sisters-in-law played two games of "Last Night on Earth". It was a lot of fun, even though the heroes lost.....both times. STILL! The second time around we played a great game and lasted until the last round. Damn you, zombies!
