It was only 185 miles from VanBuren, AR to Ada so we slept in this morning. We decided to take some of the back roads just to kill some time and a change of scenery. We pulled in to our hotel at 2:30 p.m. Since we are going to be here for 5 days we unloaded the whole damn pickup. This is the time where we could have used the upgrade to a suite just so we would have enough room to put everything. There are only 3 other cars in the hotel parking lot so it's not like they are short of rooms here.
After we unloaded I went and picked up dad and took him back to our room. A little later we went out to eat at the Sante Fe Cattle Company. The food was okay but nothing to brag about. We ran into my cousin Vickie and her family on the way out of the restaurant and dad got to have a quick visit with them. I took dad back to his apartment and now Prudy and I are relaxing watching TV.
Tomorrow being Christmas we will be spending most of the day with dad.
