Family Day in Downtown Little Rock


We spent this afternoon in downtown Little Rock. These are the pictures of this charming city.....the heart of the city, the river market, and the famous Arkansas River.


The Clinton presidential library and museum was fun. We got to see replicas of the Clinton's oval office, a collection of gifts from people during his presidency, a Christmas tree that the first lady (Hillary) chose for the White House, and many other Clinton artifacts. Bill Clinton is originally from Little Rock.


The museum had a special traveling exhibit of the artwork from Dr. Seuss. This is why we really came to the Clinton library! I love books and Laken likes the rhymes and riddles in his stories. Here are some photos of original artwork from his collection. The original book covers from "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" and "The Lorax." Statues of "Green Eggs and Ham" and artwork from "The Cat in the Hat" and "Horton Hears a Who!" Laken appeared to like the colors and art.

And then we finished off the day by walking downtown and stumbled upon the end of a St. Patrick's Day Parade. Laken liked the bag pipers and watching all of the people. She even picked up some Mardi Gras beads! It was a beautiful fun day in the South!
