Tishomingo State Park

Hiking makes me happy! There just is no better way to experience the beauty of nature! We planned a hike at Tishomingo State Park to see the Autumn colors. This is our favorite place to hike in Mississippi since it is in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. 

We hiked this park last year the day after Thanksgiving. It was beautiful then, but we knew it would be even more spectacular in the Fall. Watching the fall foliage forecast, we knew the dry, hot weather was delaying the colors. We finally just had to go since this was the last weekend we could be together before Thanksgiving. Luckily there was plenty of Autumn splendor for us to enjoy! 

October 2016

Oh how I love Autumn and the month of October! The month started off a little rough when Kaitlyn's car broke down on her way back to the Delta. So thankful for the kindness of a stranger that stopped and helped her as she was stranded in a remote area! Because the car was not repairable I had to go get her so we could car shop locally. We found a great used car and enjoyed the cotton harvest we saw on the drive through the Mississippi Delta. 

Our nephew Ryan and his wife Blair are moving to California so we met them in Memphis, TN for a visit. We had a great visit with them and then headed downtown for the River Arts Festival. You just can't go wrong with sunshine, music and art! A trip to Muddy's Bake Shop was the perfect ending to a great day. 

September recap

We started the month meeting our new great nephew and ended the month eating our way through Addison's birthday! Great celebrations all month long! I even snuck in a few Fall photos (even though the temperature doesn't even remotely feel like Fall)!
