Our 4th Anniversary!!!

Yesterday was our 4th anniversary and I had planned a nice day for the two of us. I didn't tell Sarah what we were doing until we needed to get ready. We have been working out and losing weight and I decided we would have an awesome breakfast at Cracker Barrell. Then since our bodies had gotten so used to exercising, I thought it would be fun that we go on a hike to the waterfall at Petit Jean. Here's the description for all of you who are not familiar:

Cedar Falls Trail

Length: 2 miles, 2 hours
Trailhead: Through Mather Lodge breezeway and to the left behind the swimming pool
Cedar Falls, Petit Jean Mountain's 95-foot waterfall, is accessed via a 2-mile hike.
Trail Ends: backtrack to the starting point
Difficulty: Moderate to strenuous
Trail Blaze: Orange
Description: The most popular hiking trail on Petit Jean descends into Cedar Creek Canyon. Only those in good shape should attempt this walk. The park staff recommends wearing shoes or boots that provide ankle support and a firm grip.

The first ½ mile descends more than 200 feet down steps cut from rock by the Civilian Conservation Corps more than 60 years ago. The trail follows beautiful Cedar Creek another ½ mile to the climax of the hike, Cedar Falls, one of the state's most spectacular sights. Cedar Falls cascades more than 90 feet to the canyon floor. Cedar Creek Canyon was added to the register of Arkansas Natural Areas in 1977.

But as a reward, I set us up for a nice couples massage at the local "Massage Shop", and then we went out for dinner at Sakura (Sushi). I think our bodies didn't need all of this extra food though. This morning we woke up feeling funny from all of the extra sugars in our system. But what a wonderful time we had being together and doing things together. We are so glad to have been married now for 4 years and to have such wonderful friends about us.
