This past weekend was full of activities for me and the family. Some of you may know that I joined the Lake Charles Junior League this past year...and I have been busy keeping up with my Provisional (first) year. Last Saturday was our class project - Day by Day - Autism Awareness, which was held at the mall. We had speakers, different agencies that offered resources, counseling, etc... activities for the kids, samples of foods that were considered "helpful" to kids with GI issues (gluten free, casein free)...and lots of other things. The event was a success - lots of people showed up and I feel (and hope) that we helped people. Last night was out last provisional meeting (hoot, hoot!), and we celebrated with a Mexican themed fiesta. Above is a shot of me and Ashley on the way home from our meeting (in the Bluffs?).
Day by Day - Autism Awareness 2010
We also had our annual family crawfish boil at The Pearce's on Saturday afternoon in Alexandria. All our family was there, and we (and the kids) had tons of fun!!! Benjamin is getting harder and harder to keep up with these days - running, climbing, jumping and getting into pretty much everything. One of his favorite things to do at the party was to rummage through the ice chest, grabbing cokes, waters, ice, etc...

Benjamin was just attacked with silly string by his sweet cousin Virginia (with Uncle Seth's help)

Drinking out if the "sprinkler" and eating a popsicle in T-Mark's kayak (another favorite spot)

After everyone ate and visited, the cousins had our ultimate frisbee event. We have been doing this for years every time we have a family gathering --- and it is all out war!! First to bleed loses, tackles are ok, no one is off limits kinda war...Last year Uncle Mark literally ran into a bird house on a metal pole (bent the sucker to the ground), so the "old" folks had to sit out this year. I have to admit, because of my soccer games this season - I felt ok the next morning:)

Check out those GUNS!! Me, Jenny and Jaime being silly
