This past weekend we drove to Clinton, MS, after a cub scouting event. We didn’t get out of town till nearly 9 pm, so we got in about 1:30 am. We had to rise and shine very early for Drew’s first game which started at 8, meaning he had to be there at 7:15 and it was about a 30 minute drive into Jackson. We stayed with one of Rob’s cousins and her hubby. We haven’t seen them in quite some time, so it was great to see them. Rob’s Aunt and Uncle and Dad and Step Mom drove over to see Drew play. Nice big family visit. I didn’t get a single picture of any of the family we visited. I need to work on that.

Anyway, Drew had a game at 8 am and 11:45ish, so that allowed us to have the afternoon and evening free. We ate lunch at Sal & Mookies. Very yummy pizza. After stuffing ourselves, it was back to the house to watch the Auburn vs. LSU baseball game. I took a nap. That evening we went to Trustmark Park for a minor league baseball game: Mississippi Braves vs. Tennessee Smokies.

Sunday we got to sleep in a bit before going to Drew’s final game of the tournament. We gathered one more time for lunch at Lumpkin Bar-B-Q, before heading home.
