We've enjoyed a wonderful spring break visiting Pappa, Susu and the rest of our extended family in Mississippi. It's always so relaxing and fun here. The only downside is the nine-hour drive! Here are a few pics from the first half of our trip. More to come...
Between trips to Houston and Mississippi, Gray is a pro at driving long distances in the car. Here he is ready to watch Toy Story 2.
Not sure why his riding gloves were required, but sometimes after so long in a car you get a little silly. Luckily, strawberry twizzlers make everything better. Don't mind that goatee scab on his chin. It's nearly healed after a bad bike accident before we left last week.

Upon arrival, we found Susu busy preparing dinner and dessert. Gray jumped right in to assist with the strawberry shortcake.
Daddy and Gray have also enjoyed some time on the four wheeler.
Here's Daddy and Gray fishing at the lake behind my grandparent's house. As usual, Gray only lasted a few minutes before he wanted to get back on the four wheeler with Pappa. Meanwhile, Michael has spent days fishing and caught some of the biggest bass I've ever seen out of the ponds around the property.
Pappa and Gray ready for some off-roading! We picked up those awesome green sunglasses at the local dollar store and they are Gray's favorites. He had a pair of the same kind a few years back but he wore them so much they got all scratched up.
Checking out the farm tractor
Gray has also been helping his great grandfather Papa John feed cattle each afternoon and nurse one cow with a wounded leg back to health. That led to adding farmer to his list of what he wants to be when he grows up. Perhaps some day he'll trade his helmet for a cowboy hat on that tractor (if mama says it's okay).
