Preparations are being made for KLRC's move Downtown.
They've been installing equipment on top of the Houston Enzymes's building.  Being one of the tallest buildings Downtown, it's the perfect place to catch the "waves" (radio waves, that is!).
I'll see you Downtown!
PS: Happy Memorial Day!

Boys with Cameras

While on a walk Downtown, I handed my camera to my 5 1/2 year old. It was fun looking through the pictures later to see what he notices while we're Downtown.

I think he got shot some fun pictures.

I'll see you Downtown!

Weekend Plans

This weekend we're supposed to have beautiful weather. Why not head down to the Farmer's Market (open 8am-1pm) before heading to Pour Jon's for a quick lunch. I've heard they now serve sandwiches! I need to get over there and check things out.

After lunch, why not head on over to the low water bridge.
I took my boys over there earlier this week.  It's so nice to have a sidewalk; it makes watching the water much safer.  Can you see the debris left by the high water from the storms?  Crazy!
Enjoy your weekend!

The Cafe Caters

Quick! While there's a break in the weather, head Downtown!  It's what we did yesterday morning.  It was awfully nice to have a break before more storms headed our way.

We stopped by the Cafe on Broadway for a quick treat.  The cafe girls were busy packing up a catering order.  Isn't it beautiful?  Looking at those lovely chicken salad sandwiches and salads with cheery oranges made me want to have an event just so I could serve fun lunch boxes!
Remember the Cafe on Broadway for your next catered event.
And if you don't have an event planned, now's the perfect time to grab your calendar.  You could be just days away from a cute box lunch!

I'll see you Downtown!

PS: Why are you still sitting there?  Get out and enjoy the nice weather while you can.  More storms are coming tonight!  Yikes!

Rainy Day Walk

The weather forecast predicts more rain for today.  If those raindrops let up for a bit, I'm heading Downtown for some fresh produce at the Farmer's Market and a quick walk up and down Broadway Street.

I saw on Main Street Siloam Springs facebook page that Dr. Allison's Dental Office has a new coat of paint.  The historic building was built in 1884 and the fresh paint really shows off the details in the facade.
I think I'll walk past and check things out for myself!

And then I might take my boys on over to the creek.  Rain days are good duck feeding days.  Plus, I've heard the low water bridge is finished...

Weekend Plans

I don't know about you, but after a few days of beautiful weather it's nice to have a little rain!  Having been outside most of the week, it's nice to think of a few days inside catching up on crafts and sipping tea.  Fortunately both of those things can be done Downtown this weekend.

*Creative Corner on Broadway has a Saturday Scrap Night.  (By the way...Julie has new graduation themed papers.  Perfect for scrapbooking pictures of your graduate.)
*Sager Creek Quilts and Yarnworks has a Saturday class titled: Color and Fabric Selection.  It's being taught by published author Donna Thomas.

Tea Sipping:
*Cafe on Broadway is always a good place for a cup of tea followed by a bowl of warm soup.
*Pour Jon's also has quite the selection of tea and typically has live music playing on the weekends.

So...get out and enjoy some rainy-day activities this weekend!  If crafting and tea sipping don't happen to be your idea of a good time, there's always eating, shopping, and reading.  Regardless of what you choose...
I'll see you Downtown!

Llamas in Pajamas

Books on Broadway hosted a super fun event this past Saturday evening.
Llama, Llama stopped by for a visit.  He even wore his red pajamas!
(Pictures courtesy of BonB's facebook wall.)
After snacking on some llama food, everyone sat down and listened to Ms. Trish read Llama, Llama Red Pajamas.
Did you, like me, miss this months' story-time event?  Never fear, there's one coming up next month!  Check out Upcoming Events for more details.

You may have heard that the Siloam Springs Museum is moving to Broadway Street.
I'm excited about the move.
Our Museum has so many interesting things inside and the new location will make our history that much easier to find.

A New Awning

The Cafe on Broadway was one of the recipients of the Gloria McEnroe Facade Renovation Grant, and now they have a brand new awning!

Beautiful!  It looks just great!  I'm heading down this evening to sip some tea under the brand new awning.  It's the perfect way to end a weekend.

Mother's Day Shopping

Do you still happen to have a little Mother's Day shopping left to do?
Are you running out of time?
Thanks to Downtown, you don't have to panic.
We've got you covered.
Here are a few shopping suggestions:

Perhaps the mom in your life would like something vintage...
...or something decorative...
...or a frame with your picture in it...
...maybe a book or magazine is more her style... are a wonderful option...
...maybe the mom in your life would like to have a much deserved free-day to do nothing but craft with pretty paper...
...perhaps a nice piece of art...
...or maybe she'd simply like to have someone else take over kitchen duties for the day--Farmer's Market is open today.  Just like mom always says, "Eat your veggies!?
There's all kinds of things Downtown just waiting for you!
I'll see you Downtown!

Dogwood Festival Recap

Well, believe it or not, I didn't make it to the Dogwood Festival.  Word on the street is the festival was lots of fun this year.  I planned to go, but my weekend went crazy on me and I never made it Downtown.  Good thing the Dogwood Festival is an annual event.
So, please help a girl out.  Email me some fun Dogwood Festival pictures, and I'll post them on the blog.  Our email address is   Sounds like a plan to me!

I'll see you Downtown!
