Hot Air, Cool Nights & Mint Julips


The MR & I hopped in the car Friday evening, picked up some friends & headed to Natchez, MS
for The Great Mississippi Hot Air Balloon Races.
The entire sleepy town wakes up & parties for 3 days... it's great!


We strolled through downtown Natchez, had BBQ & Mint Julips, shopped a little, watched balloons pop up into the clear blue sky, saw the Gin Blossoms perform, danced, ate fried fair goodies & laughed. Lots & lots of laughing.
It was a perfect weekend!

  4. 3 days of partying and hot air balloons and mint juleps and lots of laughter sounds like the perfect weekend getaway! (though, i--shaking my head in shame--can honestly say, i don't think i've ever tried a mint julep!)
