The Place of Mud Pies, a River, and Friends; Part 2

Continuing my journey with Devin to Mississippi....

Preparing the house for guests

Preparing ourselves for guests

"How does it look?"

Chloe, Devin, and S.

It was such fun playing games and building log cabins with all these children and young ladies!

Little Helper

Opponents in Jenga

A different sort of hat :)

Despite the age differences, there is not much difference in height!

Who says you can't be silly sometimes? :)

A game of Pit

Miss B. and Miss S.

It was delightful to meet the R. family....

...the S. family,
and the I. family (whom I sadly did not get a picture of, but nevertheless enjoyed meeting them!)

Setting up our beds again

Delighting in our midnight snack!

Chloe and Devin named Chloe's violets

Tuckered out the next morning after a late night

Bright-eyed Sam

We took a tour at the Vicksburg Civil War battlefield

An interesting war monument

Walking to see....

...the reconstructed ship Cairo


Along our travels, Mr. Bob found a beautiful camellia bush, and decided to search for the perfect camellia

And a perfect camellia he found!

THE river :)

"I'm cold, this cross-walk sign is not working, I just want to be indoors, and you have the audacity to take my picture?!" :D

"Is this  cross-walk sign ever going to change?"

Shopping and stretching our legs at an antique store

This part of the basement reminded me of something that would be in Phantom of the Opera

Dinner outlooking the river

Did I mention it was cold? :)

Driving to church the next morning

Devin and I

On a walk later that day

I love this picture....we have such fun together! (wish you were in it, too, Devin!)


It's so fun having other people around to do your hair!

One afternoon we chatted with Kaitlin and Katie via Skype...the only Squirrelys not present! :( We missed you two!

Hat shopping at Wal Mart



Our last dinner before Devin and I left :(

Our last splurge before leaving was Blue Bell Ice Cream!

It was so good!

Mr. Bob made us waffles the morning of our departure!

A sad drive to the airport

In the air again!

Devin employed her time with reading

Book Art

From this picture it would appear that I employed my time with.....nothing :)

More sky shots

After we landed, we had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory with our Moms and Mrs. P., Makenna, and Melanie! 

The other side of the table

Melanie delighted us all

She is so cute!

And so is this little lady :)

Thank you again N. family for having us! You all are so sweet!
