Crystal Bridges and a Surprise Party!

The weekend flew by, as usual. I hope y'all had a great one! So Crystal Bridges Museum opened on November 11, 2011. It was a big event in Northwest Arkansas. Russell and I couldn't wait to take time to visit the museum. We finally got a chance to go on Saturday. It was fabulous!
 Soo cool!
 We were really excited about it.
 So beautiful. I have no words! It's so amazing to go!
 Here we are at "Eleven", the restaurant at the museum. I had a Caesar salad and Russell had beans and cornbread-a perfect Arkansas meal. Ha!
We took plenty more pictures, but I don't think I should put them on my blog because of copyright issues, so I didn't post. Y'all will just have to make a trip and see for yourself. The artwork is fabulous. We only saw maybe three galleries, but my favorite was Wonder World. It was awesome.

So February 1st is Russell's birthday. We love our friends up here and we are so happy to be back here, so I thought it would be the perfect time to throw hime a surprise birthday party! My sweet friend, Mandy, helped me with it too. He had absolutely NO clue! When we got to Mandy and Chad's house, he saw balloons in the window and he still didn't know they were for him. He said, "Somebody's having a party." Then we walked in and everyone said, "Surprise!"
 It was Razorback themed, of course!
 Here is the cake that Rick's Bakery made! They did a wonderful job.
 Russell and the cake!

We always have to get a picture taken!
I wish I had gotten more pictures, but we will always remember it!
We had a blast with everyone!!!
