Summer Vacation

School's out and Memorial Day is over. Wondering what to do for your summer vacation this year? Below are some suggestions - just a few of the places visited by Beck Pennington during her lifetime. We used to joke that Beck's middle name was "Go" because any time a trip was planned, her suitcase was packed and ready to go. Rebecca Davis Pennington was born in Itawamba County in 1916, and she passed along her love of travel to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

What a time she had, and enjoyed every minute of it. I'm just glad I was along on all those trips.Don't forget Disney World, Tucson, Washington D.C., to list a few more.

Looks like Mamaw and her partner are taking a grand leak into the Grand Canyon.
