Memorial Day Fun

We had such an enjoyable Memorial Day this year! I am grateful for all of the men and women who have lost their lives serving our nation. And in honor of their memory (and Hub’s day off of work), we loaded our crew and headed down the Natchez Trace. Our good friend, Micah, joined us in the fun.

We drove all the way to the furthermost point and then made all of our stops along our way home. (Furthest point for us, anyway. The highway stretches 444 miles) The kids did surprisingly well on our little excursion. I think it was all the fresh air 😉

First stop: Jackson Falls. A beautiful little spot just 900 feet from our car

The girl just loving the water (and the rocks). The scab on her nose is from a recent climbing misadventure.

It was such a beautiful day. The water and shade were therapeutic to me, and the kids were so curious about everything. It was just lovely to be in a secluded spot on Memorial Day. And to think, we almost didn’t go because of forecasted rain!
