Fall Happenings in Mississippi
I didn't get around to taking my good camera with us much this fall. So I am playing a bit of catch up with phone pictures of some of the things we did this fall. We hit up Mitchell farms and had such a blast. We got to pick pumpkins, play in corn boxes, go down slides on carpet, jump on giant blobs, take a hayride and play on giant rope swings. It even had this mini village with homes and a church and school to play in. We stayed the whole day and the girls seriously loved it. We got to go to the Mississippi state fair in Jackson. The girls loved that and vi was a ride machine. She wanted to go on everything. She has always been so timid, so I was super proud of her for being so brave. I took the girls to a local farmers market to check out pumpkins. We did a pumpkin patch day with friends and got a hayride around their property to see their animals. Fall was seriously hot and we were sweating most of the time. It was really nice to get to spend so much time outside.

Natchez Mississippi
A few weeks ago we made a trip to Natchez Mississippi. This historic town was big with the cotton trade. It is right on the Mississippi River and is full of antebellum homes. It was seriously the most charming town I have ever seen. Every street we turned down had the most beautiful homes and quant streets. We spent the whole day walking around and exploring the town. We did one tour of a home that was never finished. The girls actually had a really fun time even though it wasn't full of very exciting things for them to do. I loved it. I really want to go back in the spring. I only got a few pictures. We went on a hunt for this old church that had been a part of  a plantation. The plantation burned down in the civil war and now there is this old church in the middle of nowhere. It was pretty tricky to find and  it gave me the serious creeps, but it was still really cool to see. If you ever come down to Mississippi, Natchez should be on your bucket list.

The girls were so good during the tour. It was not easy to be quiet and still for that long. As soon as they had the green light to run and play, they took full advantage!
