Labor Day 2013

We went to Baton Rouge for Labor Day. The Tripp family joined us. We went to our favorite lunch place Saturday afternoon. D'Angelos! I love their salads. After lunch the guys went to Bass Pro, girls to an antique store. I found another goat!
Sunday, we went to LapPlace LA, to Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. It was the beginning of alligator hunting season, so they had been feeding the alligators to keep them away from the trappers. That in itself was interesting information.
The alligators were not as hungry as usual but we still saw several alligators. I expected more birds for being in a swamp. We saw and egret and a tricolor heron. The raccoons were very cute!

Ron cannot take a picture!

Chad was sick and Stacey had the baby, but we were glad Caleb still was able to come.

The Tripp family! Andrea is looking great!

On the boat ready to see some alligators.
Here he comes. The guide tossed giant marshmallows into the bayou to attract the gators.

They fed them chicken parts.
The egret. I did not get a good photo of the heron.


Not everyone wanted to hold the alligator.
We stopped at Middendorf's after the tour.

Ann's Jambalya, the best meal of the trip.
