Was it a State Fair?

Last weekend, Claire and I went to New Orleans for the Southeast Louisiana Edition of our was the final stop in our wedding tour.

Claire's mom arranged a great party, including a chocolate fountain, a snowball machine and a cotton candy machine.

It was great seeing all of our NoLa Friends!


During the party, some of the young boys brought out remote controlled helicopters. While nobody was particularly adept at flying them, it was a lot of fun.

When the party started to die down and the RC Helo's disappeared, my brother-in-law Kyle, a friend Nick and I were looking for a toy to play with...we found them. At Wal-Mart.

We bought RC Airplanes.

We flew them in the day.

We flew them in the night.

We flew them up and down.

Flying them was tight!

Wedding Tour 2009 (using Monster truck announcer voice)!! The helicopters look like fun. I may have to get one of those. I always mess around w/ my nephews remote controlled cars that drive up the walls. They're pretty sweet.

I love how you turned into Dr. Seuss there at the end!

I bought my daughter one of those $30 remote controlled dragonflies from The Sharper Image. It did like 10 nose-dives in a row and then ripped in half.

I blame myself for being naive.
