New Orleans

We spent the last week in New Orleans for Maw-Maw's funeral. It was a nice celebration of her life and I was blessed to be there.


We also got to spend some time just hanging out with the family. Quality.

We ate way to much food. Drank way to much friendship juice. Had way to much fun.

It was nice!


Saw my first gator and water moccasin in the wild. We went out on Sarah/Kyle's boat Sunday morning, pretending we knew how to fish.

2 hours later we headed over to grandaddy's for lunch, picked up some oysters/catfish/boudin for dinner and had a big cookout that night. We also slipped in some time for the remote control airplanes we had bought over at Walmart back during our New Orleans Wedding.

Those things are so cool and way worth the $30 we dropped on them!

I love oysters. I'm jealous.

Sounds like you had a good time. Did Maw Maw have one of those old time jazz funeral processions? Those look like a big celebration of the deceased's life.

Friendship juice sounds way too much like...hell I don't know...pervy or something.

My kids love remote control planes and rocket launchers. We once had the cops approach cuz of the noise...but it was worth it!
