This past Thursday, we flew up to Memphis and then drove to Oxford for the weekend to visit the campus of Ole Miss. Connor attended orientation and will be attending this fall (mid August) ... he's a Rebel!
This was my first trip to Oxford (Dan & Connor have been in the past for a football game) and I absolutely love this beautiful, little town .. with fabulous shops and restaurants on The Square.
The campus is so pretty and pristine
Lunch at the City Grocery
Cameron (a friend and Ole Miss student), Connor, DCal and Griff
Connor missed the memo to wear a blue shirt and Griff to wear sun glasses!
The Oxford Courthouse on the Square
Dinner at The Downtown Grill
Cocktails on the balcony of Rooster's Blues House
Dinner at Boure'
Shrimp & Grits for D & C
It was so hot and steamy after an evening rain - foggy lens and bad hair!
We also had lunch at the Ajax Diner (no pictures though - I am lucky to get the ones that I did on this trip with boys who despise me pulling out my camera) ... real southern, comfort food, but I had a grilled chicken salad! ;)
The Grove at Ole Miss
On Saturday, we drove back to Memphis, spent the night at the Peabody Hotel and had dinner at the famous Rendezvous. Dan and Connor have been before and could not wait for those ribs. Griff managed to put down a full slab himself. I had a salad!

Such a fun trip. I can not wait to return to Oxford in August ...
