Three States

The alarm went off bright, uh well dark and early this morning. We were loaded into the van and headed down the driveway just a few minutes after 5am. The new toll road makes getting around Austin a snap and since the boys ended up being wide awake we stopped near Waco for breakfast. We made good time and stopped at the Louisiana border for lunch.

Four more hours and we were on the bridge traveling over the Mississippi river into Vicksburg, our stop for the first night. The hotel we are staying at had a nice cool indoor pool that was saltwater treated (no stinging chlorine). We went back towards the river into downtown Vicksburg and had dinner at a place called Monsours at the Biscuit Company. The food was good and the atmosphere was excellent. We got the feeling it was more of a local hang out but that made it even better. The smell of old wood was intoxicating!

We missed the sunset over the river by about 20 minutes but took a few photos anyway. The boys loved the big cannons there from the Civil War battle. Everyone is pretty wiped from the long day and we are all headed to bed. Tomorrow is Mississippi, Alabama, and half of Georgia.

Cozy Cabin – Busy ER

Ok, don’t panic. Really we are all okay. Although Z Man does seem to be getting the strep symptoms so we headed to the local ER to try to get him some antibiotics and after almost 3 hours and no progress (hint – 1 doctor, 4 beds, 11 people waiting = not good) we decided to get him back to the cabin to rest with some Tylenol to help him relax. We’ve got a call in to our Pedi to see if we can get him the same antibiotic as his brother so that we can go have fun at the tube slides tomorrow and on the mountain the next day!!

The drive went smoothly (the dvd player kept the boys quite entertained) and really wasn’t too bad. We stopped yesterday in Sonora at the caves and spent a few hours there. It was really an interesting cave and has some unique formations. The boys did really great not touching anything and we great sports with all the walking (an hour and forty-five minutes worth).

Cave Pool

Our cabin is right next a large deck that has a great view, especially considering we are actually right in the middle of downtown Ruidoso. I’m sure there is much fun to be had. More pictures to come I’m sure. That’s all for now!
