Last weekend we went to Baton Rouge to celebrate my mom's birthday (and I am just now getting around to writing about it...boo). We met the Pearce clan and Paw Paw and Grandma Betty for lunch on Saturday afternoon. Then the girls went to see a movie (Julie and Julia, which Ben thouroughly enjoyed in lieu of a nap), and the boys went to Bass Pro. Finally, we had dinner at Champ's and went back to the hotel to sleep. The next morning we met at Coffee Call for breakfast, then off to see Mike the Tiger at LSU. Mike was very tired, and was sleeping in a corner of his habitat. Ben was definitely not impressed - Mike will need to run, jump (maybe a little roar?!), for Ben to take notice. He did, however, really enjoy Mike's big purple ball floating in the water of his cage. Thanks everyone for coming in to celebrate...we had a great time!
