We spent days looking around online, scanning our atlas, perusing lists of day trip ideas for our area, and finally decided on a destination. The plan was to leave Friday morning and adventure around all day, camp that night and then adventure our way back home all day Saturday, and that's exactly what we did.
We got up bright and early Friday morning, loaded all our gear in the car and headed out.
|We didn't know where we'd be at lunch time, so we made up some Green Chili Burritos and had them warming up in the window for whenever we got hungry. SO YUMMY!|

|Pharr Mounds, the largest and most important archaeological site in Mississippi.|
|The view upstream as we crossed the Tenn-Tom. Those are the locks that enable boats to get around the Bay Springs Lake Dam.|
|The Cypress trees are changing colors for the fall, aren't they pretty?|
|We decided to get out at the pull out for the Tenn-Tom Waterway. Erik was sure excited to get to run around outside for a little while!|
|Headed from the parking lot to the waterway.|
Erik spent most of the day doing one of two things. For more details, see exhibits A and B
|Exhibit A. Snuggling with Elmo and taking a nap.|
|Exhibit B. We call this fuzzy picking. You know, like berry picking, except he's picking the little fuzzies off his blanket.|
|Another reason we call it fuzzy picking. Just like berry picking, sometimes you get one that's just too big and inviting to save for later and you have to enjoy it now.|
