I am so excited about our upcoming road trip in July! It's our first road trip traveling East outside of Texas. One of my girlfriends that I used to work with in the architecture firm in California, and who was also part of our wedding party, is getting married in Redwood, Mississippi at a lodge on a lake! And since it's only 8-9 hours away we're making the road trip out for the celebration. Again, so thankful for Stephen's Hertz perk of a free car and gas. We'll be staying in the town of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River. We won't have a lot of time to sight see but we'd like to take the kids to the Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum: Where Coke Was First Bottled in 1894. It also has a restored candy shop where you can get ice cream, fountain Cokes and Coke floats. Mmmm, can't wait!
After the wedding festivities we will be driving down to New Orleans. I can't wait to see all the historical architecture in this town. Take the kids on the "St. Charles" streetcar, check out Decatur Street in the French Quarter and eat some beignets at Cafe du Monde. Can't wait!
