Seth, Ben and I went to Baton Rouge for the Tulane game this weekend...my mom was planning on babysitting Benjamin, but we had a few extra tickets. I objected at first to bringing Ben to the game...it is noisy, crowded, loud, late, cold, etc...but Seth was pretty firm - he wanted Ben to experience Tiger Stadium (and my mom really wanted to go to a game too!). So we bundled up and headed to the stadium. Ben LOVED it! He was clapping, making the "touchdown" with his arms and laughing. Our first big game was a success (and a win!)...Geaux Tigers!
The next day (Sunday) we went hiking in Tunica Hills at Clark Creek with Emily, Jason, the kids, my cousin T-Mark and his friend Jessica. We had two big riding backpacks (for Ben and Virginia) and a Baby Bjorn for Owen, not to mention two regular backpacks for lunch, water, etc...We were prepared for anything! The hike was lovely (if you have not been to Tunica Hills, check it out -- it is a little piece of heaven right outside of Louisiana, in Mississippi), and Virginia and Benjamin loved playing in the waterfalls (there are six on the trial we took).
Finally, I drove to Mandeville to spend a few days with mom and for Benjamin to take his 1 year old pictures (a little early, I know). We met my sister's friend, Sherie, at Fountainview Park for pictures - Ben did great, and I cannot wait to see the results! Here is a sneak peek Sherie sent me today.
