Well, we made it back from Biloxi. Had a great time, even though it was a twelve hour trip down there and back. We stopped at a lot of museums and aquariums, saw the ocean, went to the New Orleans Audubon Zoo, visited mom and John. On the way back home we stopped in Mt Ida and dug crystals at Gee & Dee Crystal mine. Found some nice big pieces an the kids came home with their own treasure (even a bunch of Mardi Gras beads as John walks in the parade with a walking club). Can't wait till next year. Now back to reality, school, work, school and more work.
