Andrea, Steve, Veronika, Ron and I all went to Baton Rouge for the Labor Day Weekend. Saturday we visited downtown Baton Rouge, shopped and ate at that special Italian place, DeAngelo's. Sunday we visited New Orleans. We went to the Children's Museum, Aquarium, and the French Market. The kids really enjoyed the museum and aquarium, actually we adults did too.
We had a short tour of the Katrina damage areas. We didn't even see the worst, it got too late. What we saw were beautiful houses still damaged, boared up, next to houses repaired, blocks after block.
The best part of the trip was spending time with family. Veronika and Alexia had so much fun together. Veronika talked nonstop all weekend, but funny thing, she was so quite all the way home. We had so much fun catching up. Caleb was so much fun to watch. And Austin was his usaul fun self, he even played the saxophone for us.
Thank you Ann and Daniel for hosting us, cooking for us, and showing us such a good time.
As an added bonus, that store in Lake Village was open, so I got to shop some more before going home!!!
