Mississippi on the Mall

We enjoyed another day of perfect weather at Mississippi on the Mall this year.

Set up started bright and early to transform the Henry Bacon Ballfield into a southern home-away-from-home for nearly 500 Mississippians and their friends.


Mary Ellis and I are pointing to the lovely (not pictured) tent.

Can you see Lincoln behind us?


Fistful of Grits returned for our musical entertainment this year!



Mary Ellis, me, Holly


Mary Ellis and Holly did the flowers again this year.  Each arrangement was beautiful!


me, Alex, Mary Mitchell


The hustle and bustle under the tent is my favorite part.  Fried catfish, hushpuppies and good ol' southern conversation.


As much as I miss home, it's nice to have Mississippi come to DC each summer--even if only for a day.
