Spending Quality Time With Family

Yesterday, I got to spend some quality time with my daughter, granddaughter, and two great-grandsons in Raymond, MS. It really gives me a boost in my life to be around family that I love so much. Here are some pictures I took of my two great-grandsons, William David “Will”, and Noah James playing. Little Noah was also showing and reading to me one of his many books!

When I got there the passengers just loaded up on two buses to tour our Vicksburg National Military Park and other historic sites around town.  This is how they get off the ship from the opened bow.

Queen of the Mississippi In Hometown of Vicksburg, MS


The Queen of the Mississippi came Easter Sunday afternoon with her passengers and spent the night. I had planned to take a picture of her at dark all lit up but never made it to the waterfront.


You can see the buses in the picture looking down at Catfish Row at Children’s Art Park.

Easter Azaleas Flowers


I spent the last two days visiting my sister in Bovina, MS, which is on the outskirts of Vicksburg.  They have 9 acres of land and were invited to a birthday party on Saturday and then Easter Sunday to Church with a delicious meal at their home.  It was a beautiful day and I enjoyed my two visits.  Here are some pictures I took of their beautiful azaleas bushes for you to enjoy as well.  
 






The butterflies were moving so fast and were able to catch some in flutter mode.
