A view from an over look on Natchez Trace Parkway!
Its been awhile since I have posted as we have been enjoying our fun time with our family. Last week did alot of cook outs and just hanging out and watching movies. On sunday we took the girls to see the movie Tranformers, and enjoyed that movie. Afterwards we all went out to eat at a good restaurant.
On Tuesday, Daniel took the day off of work and we went down the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway. It is a parkway that is also a state park. Back in the 1800s the settlers traveled this road back and forth from close to New Orleans all the way to Nashville. The parkway is 444 miles long and ends in Natchez, Mississippi. There are so many places to stop and see along the way. You can see places that the Choctaw and Chicasaw Indians lived. There are also Mounds that are over 2000 years old. We just went a little ways down the Trace and found some waterfalls and had a picnic there. Then we went on down futher to a nice River to play around and swim in and cool off. Its been so hot and humid here this week. It finally rained this morning and is suppose to be cooler and less hot for the week-end. Our daughter will be flying back to Spokane tomorrow afternoon. We have enjoyed our time with her and are so proud of her. We are also going to miss her so much. Below are pictures of our trip down the Trace.
This is Jackson Falls which is usually a very pretty waterfalls, but since we have had very little rain this summer it was pretty disappointing. Not very much water falling right now.
This is Daddy and daughter at the Falls.
Our picnic at the falls.
A picture of Allison that I Love! This is looking off a bluff behind her.
I bought her this shirt as her middle name is Starr. She loves it. She is so pretty and just has the most wonderful personality, very bubbly!!
I will leave you with our cool and refreshing fun in the river pics. I hope everyone has had a great week. And I hope you all have a wonderful week-end!!!
