Bluebonnets To Peaches


A Stop in Mississippi

To prepare for our trip to Texas, we talked to the boys about the states we would be driving through and how long we would be in the car.  Each time we would cross a state line we would cheer and Brad enjoyed keeping track of the number of states that we went through.  As we crossed the Mississippi state line, Brad saw the sign for the “Welcome Center” and asked if we could stop – he “wanted to be welcomed!”  We stopped at the welcome center and were pleasantly surprised to be offered complimentary cold drinks!  Hubby was talking to the “welcome lady” and she told us that the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science currently had a dinosaur exhibit and it was on our way!  We decided it would be a good opportunity to stop and let the kids run around a bit and we thought the price was more than reasonable, $5 for adults and $3 for kids.

This was a great place to stop!  The museum is very nice and has some great exhibits.  The museum is located inside the LeFleur’s Bluff State Park and each exit of the museum leads to the nature trails.  The boys loved walking along the trails and we were all happy to stretch our legs!

Nick enjoyed the crocodiles.

Brad enjoyed the snakes – this rattlesnake did not like the camera!

This sign was hanging outside the preschool “hands on” room – I thought it was great!

If you happen to be driving through Jackson, Mississippi be sure and check out the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science!
