There's a lot more to Hot Springs than just the races, a shocker, I know, but there is.
A toy store called The Toy Chest run by Mr. Markus, who feels like a member of our family after frequenting his shop for the last 22 years.
David took a turn on one the new toys in the store, too.
There were flowers blooming and sunsets on the lake and neat buildings.
There were trails to be explored and creeks to play in.
And there was J.D. Solomon, my home-away-from-home dog to spoil and love.
