Scout Outing

The Scouts recently got to visit a house that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Here is a quick explanation how it got here :)

This house was originally built for Gloria Bachman Wilson and Abraham Wilson in 1954 along the Millstone River in New Jersey. It was subsequently purchased by architect/designer team Lawrence and Sharon Tarantino in 1988 and meticulously restored. However, the structure was threatened by repeated flooding at its original location, and the Tarantinos eventually determined that selling the house to an institution willing to relocate it was the best option for its preservation. After their multi-year search for a suitable institution, Crystal Bridges acquired the house in 2013. The entire structure was then taken apart and each component was labeled, packed, and loaded into two trucks provided by J.B. Hunt for transportation to the Museum. After its 1,235 mile journey, the Bachman-Wilson House arrived in Northwest Arkansas 

Pretty neat, huh?  :)

While we were there, we walked over to big LOVE sign for a quick pic

Then I remembered we had done this before with Jacob's friend, Cameron, the last time the Scouts were here, so I had to get another pic for comparison :)
Before we left, the boys wanted their pic taken in front of this sculpture. 
I guess it's gigantic roses? :) I had to take a panoramic so it would fit.
