I'm Back!

Well, that's not entirely true -- I'm still in Mississippi. But, I'm back at the blog :) We've been visiting Adam's mom. She made us steak and cheese wraps on Sunday - yummers!
We drove by our old house. I always want to drive by the old house. I think I often take a picture. It needs a bit of work, I think. Still a neat old place, circa 1870s, I believe.
This is where we stayed when we drove up the Natchez Trace. Neat old cabin. The two kids slept in a loft.
Back in Jackson, we celebrated Julia's birthday at Keifer's restaurant, our family's all-time favorite eatery. If you're in Jackson, Mississippi, it's a MUST. It's Greek, been open 31 years. Adam was there on their second day! We mentioned this to our waiter, and he told us he was there that day too -- been working there for 31 years. They're building a new building across the street; the old one will be torn down to make way for a green space/park. But it'll be the same great food! Get a gyro and cottage fries.  They brought Julia a piece of baklava free, for her birthday!
Grandma got Julia a beautiful (and delicious) ice cream cake:
Julia was very excited. She had two pieces.  Isn't it pretty?
Happy Birthday, sweet girl! We love you!
