Mississippi spring

Last week my mom, my younger sister Chandra and I went to Mississippi for the weekend since my niece Kate was getting baptized. When you're as disabled as I am it's not easy to travel since I can't just hop out of my wheelchair and crawl into any old bed like a normal person can. Even though it's a lot of work, it's worth it to be able to see my sister Sharon and her family, and especially to be a part of the baptism of one of my nieces.

The weather in Mississippi was absolutely beautiful. Spring had definitely sprung and there were blossoms on all of the trees, as well as lots of pollen that left a thick, yellow coating on everything. The weather was in the mid 80s while we were there and I thought it felt wonderful, although everyone else thought it was a little too warm! It was great weather for playing outside.
I was also able to get together with my friend JT while in Mississippi. He's originally from Mississippi, but I met him a few years ago when he was living in St. Louis. He moved back home to Mississippi last year, but fortunately he only lives two hours away from my sister, so we took advantage of being relatively close and met up each other.

The best thing about my trip was being able to spend time with family. My sister Laura, her husband Brett and their little baby also came down for the weekend, so we had lots of fun eating, hanging out and playing games. I love spending time with Sharon and her family and I just wish they lived closer, but I'll try not to complain since the distance between us (seven hours) isn't so far that we can't see each other several times a year.
