Southern Mom Loves: Our Trip to Mud Island, Memphis + Snack 'N Share to Win $10,000 from Nabisco!

Our Trip to Mud Island, Memphis + Snack 'N Share to Win $10,000 from Nabisco!

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

This post was sponsored by Nabisco as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

We love taking quick family trips during the summer and just this past weekend we went down to Mud Island. It's not actually an island, but a little peninsula out of downtown Memphis into the Mississippi River. It's a popular venue for concerts and it has a park with a scale model of the Mississippi River that you can walk through all the way to the (scale sized) Gulf of Mexico. We packed lots of water and snacks to share and I'll be sharing those snackalicious pics for a chance to win $10,000 from NABISCO and you can, too!

This trip came about when we were all talking about the places that we loved when we lived in Memphis.

I grew up there and remember going to Mud Island on a school field trip. I thought it was the coolest thing ever to be able to walk through the mini river and jump in the water at the end (there used to be a small water park there.) 

When I found out that my husband, who also grew up there, had never been, it was on.

It's crazy-hot this time of year, so taking bottled water is a requirement. I packed a cooler of water for the drive and we each took a backpack for carrying some around the park.

It's at least a few hours for the park and that's not counting the museum or gift shop so snacks are a must, too. I grabbed some of our fam's favorites while I was at Walmart, including Family Size CHIPS AHOY!, Family Size WHEAT THINS Snacks, & Family Size Swedish Fish to share.

Snacking on our favorites just got us a chance to win big!

We had a fabulous day of walking, splashing, and snacking, and even went down to see the great Mississippi itself. I love that we'll always have these fun summer memories!
