This past weekend was the debut of Stick Ari! What or who is Stick Ari you might ask? ... Great questions. Ari lives in Little Rock so she isn't here sometimes... so we created Stick Ari to take out with us - if you have 3rd graders it's much the same theory of Flat Stanley.
As you can see her "lip gloss is poppin."
Anyway, we went to see Maud Crawford. It was the first time I'd seen them but Zack et al had seen them a few times before. Its one of those bands that was stumbled upon and now I think some people's schedules are planned around it -- not that there's anything wrong with that.
Maud Crawford = Maud Crawford [mawd kraw-ferd]: A) a highly respected lawyer who mysteriously disappeared from her Camden home on March 2, 1957. Crawford's case was never solved, even after officials scavenged the Ouachita River, tore-up parking lots and ransacked the town in search of her body. It is now known as the most widely publicized unsolved mystery in Arkansas. B) A down-to-earth, solid-hitting, soul-grabbing southern rock band that brings a twist of not only the country and rock classics, but also long-lasting originals, and up-beat cover songs that will guarantee to bring you to your feet. ---Although the band's name may suggest a sudden disappearance, the music of Maud Crawford is destined for survival. And just as you think you have labeled this band, they bring out their original head-banging rock tune "I Tried" and Mountain's "Mississippi Queen." ---Maud Crawford consciously chooses to perform cover songs that share the down-to-earth edge of their originals. Some of those cover songs include "Heart of Gold" by Neil Young, "Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams, "Tuesday's Gone" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and "Lonesome, On'ry, and Mean" by Waylon Jennings. Live, Maud Crawford carries out intricate harmonies and brings an up- beat, dance-your-heart-out energy to audiences of any age. They have been seen at several venues in Northwest Arkansas and plan to expand their fan-base to rock and country audiences nationwide. ---Excerpt from a Biography written by Virginia Wietecha, staff writer for Carroll County News ...

They were really great and I'll probably make a stong attempt to go see them again!
We got a great picture of all the girls...
On Saturday afternoon, we went to a shower for Cole. Erin hosted a lovely shower. The invites were really cute - the theme was a Garden Hat Party - however it was super cold so no garden and I couldn't find a sassy hat so... Either way it was fun and Cole got some really great gifts!
