After Georgia we took off and drove through the night to spend the night in Mississippi. We got up the next morning and drove to Mesquite, TX (near Dallas). That evening we stayed with our relatives, Uncle Eric (Dad’s brother) & Aunt Ashley. It was great to see our little cousins, Josh (5) and Emma (2). Emma was talking a lot more since we last saw her and you’d think she was 3 or 4! I love them both so much.
The kids piled up leaves and slid down the playhouse slide into them. We roasted marshmallows, and of course incinerated a few. Daniel had s’mores ALL over his face. Time to get out the wet wipes!
Aunt Ashley picked up donuts for breakfast, which was delicious! I have a special spot in my heart for pastries <grin>. After donuts, we hit the road to Austin.
