Spring Break: Jackson or Bust!

Our Spring Break got off to an early start on Friday, March 6th, when the last, half day of school was cancelled because of the snow still on the ground. HG and I had planned to leave for a weekend in Jackson at lunchtime on Friday, so after a lot of scouting road conditions, we decided to still strike out for our trip since Jackson hadn’t gotten any snow. We found ice under overpasses on the interstate for 60 miles or so, but after that, the roads were fine.

We spent Friday night and Saturday morning with Reba and the kiddos. The girls (and little) William too) had a big time running wild out in the yard and woods behind their house. After dinner, they all piled into their sleeping bags for a viewing of Frozen. Leighton and HG were the only two left standing after the movie, and while HG attempted to sleep in Leighton’s room, she soon decided to sleep with mama instead. The next morning, the outside fun continued, and after lunch, I had to pull {a muddy, happy, and exhausted} HG away to go see our Jackson family.

We joined Aunt Glo, Suzanne, and Grace Ann for mass at Gloria’s church, and then we met Uncle Lary for dinner at Primos’. Worth made it back in town from a baseball game after dinner and came to see us at Gloria’s. He came over in the morning for a bit too. We had planned on meeting Suzanne and Grace Ann for lunch, but at the last minute, they decided to head to Memphis to shop a great sale at the equestrian shop to get GA ready for a horse show. Gloria decided to hop in the car and ride home with us (yippee!) so that she could keep Suzanne awake on the late ride home, and then we met up with Suzanne, GA, Hanley, Cam, Hayes, and Hastings for our already-planned family dinner in Southaven with Granddaddy, Spiffer, Grandma, and Peggy. McAlister’s might never be the same, but we had a BALL!
