To celebrate TK's birthday we traveled to Murfreesboro, Arkansas, and stayed at Crater of Diamonds State Park, for a lovely four day weekend!
Murfreesboro is located in the southwest section of Arkansas and is the county seat for Pike County. This small town has great small-town charm with a very cute downtown area for shopping.

The Crater of Diamonds State Park is located just three miles south of Murfreesboro and consist of 37 acres of pure diamond digging delight! This crater is actually the only place in the world where the public can hunt for diamonds and keep whatever they find. We visited the park many years ago and had no luck finding a diamond. This time we returned to rectify that situation!
