When we found out that we were definitely moving to Birmingham, one of the first things we did was look up what friends we had that were close by! Thanks to being an MK it’s not hard for me to find contacts almost anywhere in the world!
Curt and Deb Barnes were really good friends of mine in PNG, and we discovered that they are only 3 hours away in Mississippi! We were thrilled. It was great to think that we would be able to reconnect with friends that we hadn’t seen for too long. Add to that that they happen to have kids that are the perfect age for our girls to be-friend and we were off to catch up with them!
It was our first interstate adventure, and we managed to get to Jackson on Friday evening just in time for a cup of tea and a chat before bed! What a treat.
Curt and Deb have a fantastic property, with lots of space for the kids to run around, so we spent most of the time sitting around chatting whilst the kids ran around the yard. They also had some new additions to their family in the way of two baby goats. The girls were instantly infatuated!
