First time my son has ever peeled...really. He didn't believe me that the sun in Mexico is stronger.. ...he chose not to use sunscreen because he has never burned before ...and burn he did ...next time he will listen to his mama!!!
We debarked today to very grey skies and rain. We were hoping to walk around downtown NOLA and see some sights but none of us wanted to do it in the rain.
However, I was determined to try my first beignet!!
I got to cap off a wonderful trip by meeting a great blogging friend! Rachel from Musings of a Future Pastor's Wife!!! She directed us (our GPS got us lost, go figure) to Cafe De Monde and met us there for coffee and beignets!
How fun is that?! She brought along her beautiful daughter.....who was a bit shy at first. I think all these boys overwhelmed her! :)
What a perfect ending to our vacation!! ...and the beignets? A.MA.ZING
My son got in the car and said "wow, those bengays were so good" ya, we're from Arkansas! ha!
We left VERY early this morning to drive to New Orleans to catch the ship. We were rewarded with a gorgeous sunrise!!
First thing they make you do on the ship is gather at your muster stations and go over evacuation procedures. We were in the back against the wall and they kept telling every one to take a step back. This elderly lady was practically on top of Jason!! He was a little creeped out! ha!
We had some friends over for dinner tonight. I was having so much fun visiting, that I forgot to take a picture while they were here...we even talked about it!! So here is what was left that wouldn't fit in the dishwasher!
A friend of mine has been asking me how to explain Easter to her 6 year old. So while the youth were at our house tonight, I went out and bought her some resurrection eggs and a few books to help her out!
Jared and I went out looking for sandals for him for vacation. After going to 5 stores, we finally found a pair that will work....sheesh, it's the south...why aren't sandals out yet?!!! It took us so long, we had to drive through Sonic for dinner.
I am a woman in mid-life who loves the Lord and her family!! I am the mom of 3 absolutely amazing kids (23, 21, 19) who make my life happy, crazy, busy.....perfect! I am also a pastor's wife. I try to live each day looking for where God is working so that I can join him there.
I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way!
