Great Trip

We had a great weekend in Jackson, Mississippi. The weather was beautiful, and we got to do everything we had planned to do. Saturday, we went to the Mississippi Natural Science Museum ( http://www.mdwfp.com/museum/html/about/index.html ). We had good time there, and I was happy that they got to see some of the things that we've talked about in school.








After touring the museum, we took a little hike on their trails. Okay, to me it felt like a big hike, but it wasn't too long.

















Afterwards, we went out to eat then back to the hotel for the kids to swim for a couple of hours. That is, after all, one of the main things they wanted to do. They have been begging us to get our pool ready, but we have to buy a new liner for it and take the time to replace it. So......they were very happy to get to swim this weekend.
Saturday night, we took the kids to a place called The Park, where we rode go carts on tracks, played putt putt golf, hit balls in the batting cage, and played video games. It was great!
On Sunday, we went to the Jackson Zoo ( http://www.jacksonzoo.org/ ). We had a good time, but was a little sad to see how run down they have let it become. It's been a few years since we last went, and it has not been kept up well since then. However, the weather was beautiful, and we enjoyed being out in it.









We went out to eat at Cracker Barrel before heading home. The time went too fast. I love getting away like that with Jeff and the kids....away from other responsibilities...away from anything else that takes our attention from each other. It was hard to see Jeff go back to work this morning and to pull the school books back out. I am so ready for summer break!

What a great trip. There's just nothing like getting away, even for just a weekend! You have such a sweet family and I've so enjoyed watching the kids grow over the last year and a half!
I'm glad you're my friend!
