Well, we ended up outside of Jackson, Mississippi at a Jellystone Park Campsite. Daddy spent the vast majority of our Mississippi stay at the car dealer getting a new windshield and then two trips for new tires. We were plagued with car issues. All is fine now though.
Day one Daddy took off early to go to the car dealer and Mommy, Emmerson and I had an easy morning. We leisurely ate breakfast waiting for quite hours to be over.
Daddy rented us a golf cart so we could get around better since Mommy still had a sore ankle. We had an amazing campsite away from the noise of the common areas.
We grabbed the fishing poles and bug containers and headed out to the dock to start the day.
I found so many bugs but this centipede was my prize possession. It was about 4 inches long!
We hung upside down dipping into the water for a few hours.
We found these cool mud boils. I have no clue what made them but I collected about 20 of them from all around the campsite.
When the campgrounds was finally awake we went and saw Yogi Bear.
and Boo Boo too!
I had to have a picture with Yogi’s picnic basket!
We did crafts.
We played putt putt and then went swimming.
When Daddy got back we went to the Petrified Forest.
I thought it was cool that wood could turn into rock!
I saw a huge salamander and then found this cool funnel spider!
After our hike we panned for gems.
I was pleased with my rocks.
There was a rather scary museum and I am not sure what this was supposed to be.
We stopped by Bass Pro Shop and the power went out. We did a craft in the dark and then hit the road to beat the storm back to the campsite.
We had a blowout on a back tire on the way back so Daddy was off to the dealership again in the morning to get two new tires. Mommy took us to the lake and we played in the muck and collected clams and bacteria! We enjoyed the huge swimming area and water slides.
Tomorrow off to Mammoth Caves!
