Fun {and Cute!} Vistors & Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

This cutie and his Mama and Daddy came for a visit last week. 
Man, it was so fun to catch up. Wish they didn't live all the way in Colorado... Work on that will you Katie!?
These two had fun playing together too!

Good friendships are so refreshing to my soul! Thanks for swinging by our tiny little town :)

While they were here I made these yummy brownies... and then I ate too many of them, and then I had to take them to Chick-fil-A. Whew, addictive!
