August 2016

So, remember I said I was gonna post a whole bunch of catch up posts?  Well, I always do what I say - unless I don't, which is not what we're talking about here, right?

So, August was another busy month for us.  Let me go find some photos to share with ya . . . .

Andrew and I did a fantastic hotdog and strawberry puzzle.  It's not easy taking a selfie with a puzzle.

Gracie got some letters to make - kind of a craft/learning thing, but she wanted to do them all fast so it didn't quite work out the way I planned.

But she was really cute holding her A for Alligator.

Brian and I went out to Albasha to celebrate our 20 year anniversary and eat my favorite food in BR.
Schwarma and gyro!!!

And I got a big bouquet of my favorite flowers!!

And then, like the next day, it started to rain and rain and rain, and lots of our city flooded.  Some of our friends were rescued from their homes in the middle of the night by kind hearted citizens called the Cajun Navy.  Lots of people lost everything.  Thankfully, we were safe and dry in our house.

This is a flooded apartment complex just north of our house.

Also during this time the Rio olympics were going strong.  We loved watching the events together and cheering for the USA. The olympic hype carried over into James' room as well.  (aka the green room)  Some of the kids were reenacting olympic events and the wall took damage.

No, it wasn't Usain Bolt who did this to the wall, it was this guy.

Usain Smith

We also celebrated Jon's 11th birthday - Can't find any pictures of him with his cake, but I know they are somewhere.

The kids took selfies with my phone.

A rare and unusual sighting of the girls there.

Alyssa started LSU which meant that we had to drive her to class.

And then we had to pick her up as well.

Brian and I went out again and had dinner in front of a chicken rotisserie.

It was good.

And, finally, James and Faith got together for a photo.

Stay tuned for September.  :)
