Weekend FUN

Another weekend has come and gone. Is it wrong that I am already counting the weeks until summer? The warmer weather has given everyone spring fever! It did turn off a little colder this weekend as the rain interrupted some of our weekend plans.

Saturday morning Jake was supposed to have a soccer game but the rain canceled it and we were able to attend Issac's birthday at the fire station. This was the first birthday party we had been to there and it was very interesting. The kids enjoyed seeing Mr. Chris quickly dress in his fire suit.

Thomas, Landry Grace, and Madison.
The rain canceled our next party as it was scheduled during the Tech baseball game. We headed to Bossier for a date night and GG kept the kids. Sunday morning we went to our old church, Cypress Baptist, for Sunday school and church. We miss our church family and friends there so much! I could go on and on but I'll stop there. We feel God has placed us in Ruston right now but are praying for direction in the future.

We then headed to Shreveport for the Krewe of Highland parade. It was very family friendly and the kids had a lot of fun despite missing their afternoon naps. The weather was a little chilly and next year I'll try not to forget chairs and strollers:(!
Landry Grace was fine once the cotton candy was in her hand. She ate the entire thing.
Jake was playing "Mardi Gras Mambo" on his trumpet.
Waiting on the parade to start.
We had located the parade at this point and they were all smiles.
This particular float was throwing peacock feathers and what Matt thought was a rubber chicken foot. Well, it wasn't rubber....and the foot cut his hand pretty good. Gross!
I think Jake held his hands up the entire parade. Pretty comical.
They loved wearing the beads around their neck for the first 10 minutes. After that, they preferred to have them in the bag.
Sacked O.U.T. on the way home. We even stopped on the way home to have dinner with Aunt Lou and LG was so tired she just slept on 2 chairs that we pushed together. Yeah, she was pretty upset when she finally awoke near Ruston and realized that we'd already gone out to eat. :(
Celebrating with all their loot.
That's all folks!
