We’ve been in Mississippi for a little over a week now and we’re enjoying the warm weather. To us, it seems more like early September than November. We spent the first week at the Ross Barnett Reservoir campground where we stayed last spring. It’s a beautiful locale but about 35 minutes drive from Sandra and the girls so we’ve moved to Wendy Oaks RV resort a little south of Florence (which is south of Jackson).
We attended the church Halloween party with Katrina, Clarissa, and Sierra on Halloween night and watched them play all of the games and win candy prizes. All three of them also won a cake at the cake walk! They were pretty excited about that. Bob had to leave for Pittsburgh on Tuesday (returning on Thursday night) but Pat got to see Katrina’s last football game. She was her team’s best player and Sierra and
Clarissa were great cheerleaders!
We had Sandra and the girls over for dinner last Friday night and then the girls stayed overnight with us. We visited all of their favorite places at the Reservoir—the boat launch to pick up shells and feed the ducks, and the playground, both for the swings etc. and to dig in the sand. We also hiked along the Pearl River below the dam, an interesting view of the dam with lots of white sand. Katrina returned home Friday evening but the twins spent Saturday night with us and then we took them to church on Sunday morning. They’re attending Marvin United Methodist Church so we felt right at home!
After we settled into our new campsite yesterday we again had Sandra and the girls over for dinner. Katrina had requested cheesy potatoes and apple pies in the pie irons (we had chicken and vegetables as well). It was warm enough that we could eat outside at the picnic table and then sit around the campfire for dessert. It was a wonderful evening!
