This is a continuation of our vacation series :)
After leaving San Antonio, we headed East to visit my dad in Baton Rouge.
Papa Mike planned a special crawfish boil just for our visit!!
Papa Mike is a big goof ball. Poor Ms. Diana :)
Because there was a chance of rain, Dad planned the crawfish boil at his friend, Daryl's house. They had lot's of fun things for the kids to do, including a trampoline!!
The kids really liked playing with the poor little crawfish before they were boiled.
We had three bags…. more than we needed but they were soooo good. Papa Mike sent the extras home with us.
Papa Mike had met Titus when we has in the hospital last November for his heart attack, but this was the first time her really got to hold him and play with him.
Originally Tim wasn't so sure about the Swamp tour, but I had told him how neat it was so he agreed to do it.
It didn't take too long and he realized I was right!!
We saw lots of birds, bugs and over 30 alligators.
Sadly, Audrey ended up getting stung by a red wasp, and since then has had a fear of certain bugs. She handled it pretty well, considering how badly it hurts to get stung.
We saw lots of alligators yawning, and just hanging out in the sun.
We got lots of really cool pictures.
The kids enjoyed it.
Treyton remembers it from the last time we went - he still talks about it and that was back in October 2011.
Treyton was excited to get some spanish moss.
This turtle was pretty cute - "chilaxin" (as Alexa would say), just hanging out kickin' his legs up.
I love the culture of Louisiana, I really do. I wish we were able to visit more, I want my kids to experience it as much as they can.
We are blessed to be able to stay with my dad when we do visit, to keep the expenses down and to be able to spend as much time as we can with him.
It's always hard to leave, but we're so grateful for the time we got to spend with Papa Mike and Ms. Diana.
