  2. you all must be glad to be home.. thank you so much for sharing your trip with all of us.. it was nice way to start my day..
    love you all, Kelli

  3. I personally love fried catfish and grits with you know I am a very healthy eater. But these are two things I can not hold back and eat when I see/smell them.......grits with butter and catfish with hot sauce! Knowing your track record I really can not believe that you did not get any traffic or speeding violations-HA! I can not wait to see all the pictures and talk to you about the trip! I know it was a great time!

  4. Kelly,
    We are definately glad to be home. Thanks so much for following along with are wonderful.

  5. Matt,
    I was so surprised that I enjoyed the catfish po boy...and grits are awesome. Actually, maybe its the butter, cheese and everything that makes me like grits. Great stuff for sure. I can't wait to share all the photos & videos with you. If you want, I'll send Dad home w/a DVD for you that includes all of the pictures (over 200) and video clips (27). I'm excited about not getting any speeding tickets. I was a little worried in Mississippi...they probably send you to jail for speeding:) Thanks again for following along with us. You are the best.
