Oxford, MS

Our friends came down for a visit a bit ago, so we took a day trip to Oxford, MS. She went to Ole Miss, and since it is only about 45 minutes from here, we all went. Oxford is a beautiful town. Since we got there at lunch, we had to try Abners, their favorite Chicken place.

The girls at Abners parking lot.

Then we spent some time downtown, getting ice cream at a little sweet shop and  checking out Corner Books.

The town is a square around the court house, with lots of great shops and restaurants. There is a children's corner books, which has a play area for the kids.

Of course, after exploring downtown, we had to visit Rowan Oak, William Faulkner's home.

The grounds were absolutely wonderful, cool and shady. The girls ran around outside for a bit, and let the moms explore then inside of the house.

It was a nice day.Oxford is a really cool town, we hope to go back soon to explore more!
