An Old Familiar Place - Petit Jean State Park, Arkansas

Friday Sept 13th – We headed out this morning with an air of excitement. Our next stop was Petit Jean State Park, Arkansas, just 224 miles away. Petit Jean has always been a favorite spot for us. We have visited their many times both just Fred and I, and with our kids as they were growing up. This weekend, we invited Brian and Rebekah to drive up and join us.

We arrived about 2:30 pm, after having stopped in Russellville for a few groceries. We took our time setting up camp – pulling out lawn chairs and even cleaning the camper windows. Everything had to be just right…..

We were in site # 20, a full hook-up site right across the camp road from the lake. Very nice site, with a nice tent pad which was important because Brian and Bekah planned to bring their tent to sleep in.

About 7pm, The kids finally arrived! It was so good to see them (and Jade, too) after 7 weeks of being gone!


With enough daylight left to set up their tent……


They pulled out tent, fly and poles and set about figuring out how to set this new tent up.


With that chore done, we settled in for a nice supper and a chance to catch up on visiting….
