Well, after Charleston, we had plans to head through Atlanta and stop and stay a night at Stone Mountain, but we were really pressed for time, so we’ve tucked those plans away for another day and drove on. We stopped overnight in Jackson, Mississippi. I’m sorry if you’re from there, but we rolled into town about 10:30/11:00 p.m. and got LOST trying to find our hotel. Super scary. All was well in the end though…we slept like rocks, woke up, ate breakfast and hit the road again. We drove as fast as we could through Louisiana because it’s not our favorite either and pressed on for that Texas border!
Woo-hoo! Us native Texan’s stopped for a proud photo opp
Then, my sweet husband took us for a slight detour through Jefferson, Texas. It is a teeny-tiny little dot on the map that we had visited years before when some of our friends got married there. I instantly loved the place, so we swung back through town to see if we still loved it and the answer is yes! Their general store has GOT to be one of the best…we all contentedly spent an hour in there playing with all the knick-knacks!
We then pressed on towards Dallas. We were going with the purpose of speaking at our home church on Sunday, but we rolled into town on Friday night to make the most of our weekend and see as many friends as possible. It was fun catching up with them after three and a half years! Here are just a few of the fun we had with others!
Whew! Thus concludes our giant road trip! Come Monday morning it was back to the real world but we were SO blessed to get to spend time with so many fabulous people, see so much of our beautiful country and just DO so much fun stuff together as a family! My postcard collection grew significantly from this trip
