We started our day waking up in a hotel room in Grand Prairie. Had breakfast at Starbuck’s (they have yummy egg sandwiches there) with my favorite latte (skinny venti latte).
The PODS got picked up.
We returned our keys to the landlords.
Then we stopped by Tom’s job and said goodbye to the staff. They prayed for us before we left. It was wonderful to be sent off with love and prayers. I’m going to miss those guys.
We hit the road and traveled through Louisiana. Very pretty highways. Loved these yellow flowers.
Along a stretch of Highway 20 in Louisiana was a ton of casinos on both sides of the road. Diamond Jacks Blvd. leads the way to Diamond Jacks Casino.
We crossed the Mississippi river.We stopped in Jackson, Mississippi for the night and we’re staying at the Holiday Inn. We had a very nice dinner at the Lone Star Steakhouse and Saloon. The food was very yummy.
To finish off our day, we had ice cream at Baskin Robbins. I had a Snicker’s ice cream cone and Tom had Cherries Jubilee.Tomorrow we head to Birmingham, Alabama and it looks like I will be meeting with a blog friend (more on that later) which will be icing on the cake.
