Back in Action Again!

I'm back. Finally. My poor blog has been neglected for so long. Now that Oliver is on the go I seem to find less and less time for blogging. I have a lot of fun and wonderful things to catch up. At the end of February (Yes I am that far behind) we took a family trip out to Mississippi. It happened to be the big week before Mardi Grass weekend. Oh boy did we have some fun. We even got to experience a Mardi Grass kids parade and boy was it crazy! They sure do love there parades down there. The boys and uncle Jade had a great time collecting beads. Jade was the master at it. Must be that incredibly charming face of his. We were there for over 5 hrs and we left with hundreds of beads.

Also while there we enjoyed the beach. The boys built sand castles. I'm not sure who had more fun the big boys (Jade, and Justin) or the little boys. Oliver loved the sand. He played in it, crawled in it and even rolled around in it for good measure. By the time we left the little boys had sand EVERYWHERE. Also while in Mississippi we went to Stennis Space Center. I got to go on the job site and see what Justin his dad and Jade have been working on for the last two years. It was pretty awesome to see how big the project really is. We then took the boys through the space museum. It was small but the boys enjoyed it. Also while there we went to a super nice dinner. I even tried, es-cargo, and oysters. Hurray for me. It actually was not near as bad as I was expecting. And of course what would Mississippi be without a little craw fish feast? The d

The day before we left we went into New Orleans and spent the day. We went to Bourbon street, took the kids to the New Orleans zoo, and enjoyed the scenery. I had a great time looking at all the different houses and learning about the different culture. It amazes me how different it is down there. Some of the houses are just beautiful! We enjoyed our time in Mississippi so much. It was great weather, even better company, and an all over fantastic trip! Thanks so much Jade and Meghan for the great time!My boys, especially Karson always asks me when we can go back to Mississippi.
