Jackson, MS

Two weekends ago, Jamie and I loaded up the car and took a 6 hour road trip west down I-20 - all to meet sweet little Caroline Burkhalter! Oh, and to see her parents too. :) I told you some about Caroline, and her mama Kathryn, on my blog here. But I've known mama since we were in the crib together.

We spent a lot of the weekend just hanging out at their adorable home, and enjoying the time to catch up (and watch them work their baby schedule like clock work!). But we also got out a few times to see all that Jackson had to offer. Of course, I was mostly interested in the landmarks from The Help movie. [Sidenote: Kathryn was an extra in the film. A teeny tiny extra part, but fun, nonetheless!]

Here are some photos of our weekend getaway to good ole' Jackson, MS.

our basket of goodies for Caroline...
you just don't show up empty handed :)

lunch excursion to Brent's Diner - where Emma
Stone, aka Skeeter, had a few meals in the movie

absolutely adorable.
Kathryn and Neal live in the Fondren area of Jackson,
and that's where most of the Jackson filming took place.
It's all super cute and old school, and they said it's
always been like that, not just for the movie.

Caroline's first baseball game...
the Mississippi Braves! Who knew?!
(Apparently lots of people other than myself)

Big thanks to Kathryn and Neal for hosting us so well, even with a 2 month old!
