A Visit to Tontitown

Tina, one of our faithful followers, and her husband, Jon, had the opportunity to meet Josh and Anna at a marriage conference in Northwest Arkansas this weekend.
Here's a little bit about her trip:

Hey Lilly and Ellie! I'm back from the trip and I will be blogging about it eventually! Well we just got back from Northwest Arkansas last night and it is covered!
Day 1... We got stuck in Josh and Anna's Champion Motor Cars because the snow and traffic were HEAVY!
Day 2... We drove by the Duggar Family's house and I stopped and took a picture. There were a few little Duggars out front playing in the snow. I think it was Jackson? That was using the "Vote for John-David" sign to sled around. There were sled marks everywhere! I didn't get the kids in the picture playing but I got the big beautiful house. (It's much bigger than what you see on TV).
The same day we went to the Gary Smalley Christian Marriage Conference in Tontitown I believe, and guess who was there! Josh and Anna Duggar! We bumped into them at the conference in a small group they offered there for married couples, after the small group session I headed over to her, got a picture and even got to chat a little bit! She is SO sweet! Josh talked to Jon and I also. We told them how much we look up to them and admire them. And to keep up the great work! We said our goodbyes and that was that! 1400 married couples attended this love and laughter conference, and we just so happened to meet them! It was a real blessing!
Day 3... My Husband and I went to the Fayetteville Mall (the mall where Jinger went to buy Jedidiah's chess set) was awesome...we went to the Razorbacks' store, the candy was fun! After that, we got our seats right behind the bench and watched a lady backs basketball game! GO HOGS! Woo Pig sooie! Arkansas lost to Auburn (50 to 54) it was a great game though!

Jon and I LOVE it there, I'm sure we will go back again someday! For all of you who have never gone...GO! It's a great place! You will have a blast! And you just might bump into a Duggar or two ;)

  2. How exciting, Tina! Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

  3. Just recently noticed when looking over the photo of there home...In the photo above...if you zoom in and look real close you can see a Duggar! lol....This Duggar has there back turned so I don't know who it is...I don't think I'd be able to tell anyway lol! My Husband said he saw a little girl in a pick dress out there playing too (not in the photo) was when we were driving ...we are guessing it was little Johanna.

  4. Here is a link to the conference my Husband and I attended.

    There are other events coming up, make sure to mark your calenders! :)

  5. Thanks for the link, Tina! We noticed the little Duggar boy in the picture and tried to zoom in but could not tell who it was. Your picture is beautiful though!
