Family Day: A Southern Lunch


We head back to the Amazon soon so that means we've got to spend as much time with family & friends as possible. That called for a family day at a little place called the Pickett House where my Nana works. She had the day off to enjoy a meal with us and celebrate becoming a Great Grandma to not one, but two grand babies coming this fall. :) They serve a southern family style meal complete with fried chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes, mixed greens, dumplings, sweet tea, cornbread & rolls. No southern meal is complete without dessert, so to top it all off we enjoyed a delicious peach cobbler. I don't eat like this often, but I quite enjoyed it! 



The Pickett House Restaurant. 





All they yummy food to be passed around the table.


My momma & daddy. This little restaurant made for some fun photos. :)



My plate of southern deliciousness. My Nana laughed at me for taking pictures of my food. ;)


My beautiful Nana & James. How precious are they? They even sing & play together in a Southern  Gospel band. I wish I would've gotten some of my Nana's music ability, she can rock that standing bass while singing some beautiful harmonies.


That delicious peach cobbler...with a cup of decaf, of course. ;)

Brandon, Brooke, & their little one Bryleigh May still growing in the womb. ;)


While my grandparents play in a band, amongst other things, they also make & sell jellies at the pickett house/heritage village gift shop. 
Y'all, my grandpa, James HAND COLORS every label they put on their jars! I'm truly amazed at his talent & patience to do that. This Blackberry Musician label was my favorite. :) 


My handsome & I.

After our lunch we went to explore the outdoor museum, Heritage Village. 
I took so many pictures, that the Heritage Village deserves a post of its own.
