Trip to Ft. Benning, Georgia and Missouri

We have so much to catch up on, since we were last here. We've decided that we would just put a few things and leave out the rest or we would NEVER get caught up. We were blessed to be able to go to Ft. Benning, Ga. and then on to Missouri in November. To our surprise the beautiful fall colors were still out for our enjoyment. The pix are not in order. This is mom posting and I have no idea how to get them in order!! and also don't pay attention to the date on the pix. It is all WRONG!!

Hope you enjoy
