Hot Springs Day Trip

We had a three day weekend, so we decided to take a day trip to Hot Springs. It's only an hour, so it wasn't too long of a drive. It's a neat town...definitely not a must see, but still fun. We walked down Central Ave (the main strip that has downtown, bathhouse row, and the National Park). We had lunch at a little Italian restaurant, checked out the unique shops, and got to see the water coming out of the springs. It's quite hot when it comes out...143! It was an absolutely beautiful day...even a little chilly in the morning :)

The girls in front of a fountain.

This is the main public springs area. It comes out and then down the rocks into a manmade pool. We stuck our hands in it; it was HOT!

One of her happy times in the stroller. She didn't really want to be in the stroller much yesterday. She wanted to get out and walk.

Leah on the edge of one of the fountains. She's reached the point where she wants to walk on elevated walkways...curbs, etc.

The girls on the lawn area between the main hot spring and the Arlington Hotel.


The Arlington Hotel. Eric and I stayed there once when he went through Little Rock after pilot training ~2004. It's pretty inside. Lots of neat woodwork. Supposedly Al Capone used to stay there alot.
