Mother's Day & Arkansas Auction With The Whole Family 5.7.2016

I have two adult sons.  Neither one has ever hung out with me at auctions.  I do recall giving a "want list" to Son A when he was about 14 and dropping him off at an auction to do the bidding for me.  He did have a great time and did an awesome job. But no family auction time.  Until last weekend.
 
Son A and his lovely wife wanted my husband and I to join them in Branson for Mother's Day weekend.  So we picked up Son B on the way to make it a family celebration. The entertainment for Saturday was actually planned by Son A.  His co-worker's father was having an auction in Arkansas.  Our daughter-in-law had an engagement and couldn't go -- so we popped up the two stow-and-go back seats and loaded up like old times.

The auction was really on some gorgeous back roads in
northern Arkansas.  This abandoned "grocery store"
was very close to the auction.  How cool is this building?
 
I gave all my guys a break by only staying
for about the first hour at the auction. 
 
Here they were "on call" to haul stuff for me.
 
 
We rounded out an over-the-top Mother's Day weekend by
cranking out some homemade ice cream...
 
stopping at a couple of garage sales...
 
going to church,
and eating at Lambert's (Home of the Throwed Rolls).
Tune in soon to find out what treasures I carted home.

    We ate at Lamberts a couple of weeks ago and I did a blog post about it. I LOVE that place!! What did you have to eat?

    1. I had the ribs, so YUM. Other members of the family got chicken fried steak and chicken fingers. Ohhh, the rolls! Sharon

    2. And the fried potatoes. I could eat just those and the rolls with sorghum.
