The second day of our trip was spent driving the remaining distance to the home of Peter's parents in Byhalia, Mississippi. We arrived around the middle of the day. In the afternoon Peter and the boys enjoyed being outside and spending time with Peter's dad, Jerry. I went shopping with Peter's mom, Betty, for the last of the Thanksgiving supplies. The third day was Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. I took some pictures of the kids enjoying being at Grandma and Grandpa's house. I spent most of the day baking pies (2 apple and 1 chocolate cream) and sweet potato casserole.
The pictures are a little out of order. They begin with bathtime at the end of the day:

Playing with daddy

tough boxer

Jerry took Peter and the boys to see a miniature version of the Vietnam Memorial that had been erected in Holly Springs, MS.

Amelia loved this little slide. More than anything, she loved that red ball. It stayed right where you see it, ALL day.

Can't let go of the ball!

Ben climbed very high in a tree and was really excited that he was big enough to do it.

Out on the lake with Grandpa Jerry

Peter took the boys out on the lake in shifts.

The only catch of this day was by Peter, but Sam enjoyed holding and looking at it.

A spider that the kids were thrilled with. :-)
