Something besides soccer in South Carolina

Our favorite musical was playing in downtown Greenville at their huge arts center.

These falls ran in the middle of the downtown area - Just BEAUTIFUL!

Free performances of Shakespeare plays run at this park next to the falls. I'd love to be in one of these:)

This is the main street that runs through downtown.

US Youth Soccer Regional Finalists!!

We finally have some good soccer photos! Rich got a new camera (We call it his new girlfriend since he's been spending so much time with her- Her name is Nicki) for Father's Day/his Birthday and we took it to South Carolina for the regionals. Hunter's team won for the state of Louisiana, so they went to compete in one of four regional tournaments in the United States. They were really just hoping to win ONE of their games and they beat Oklahoma, tied Florida, and beat South Carolina which put them in first for their bracket. Then they beat South Carolina (wild card) in the Semi Finals and advanced to play North Carolina in the finals. Unfortunately, they lost 2-1, but it was very close. This puts them in the top eight teams in the United States. We really had a great time with all the soccer families and seeing a part of the country we've never been to before. South Carolina is beautiful!! We are proud of Hunter and his committment to his team.

This was the opening ceremonies at the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville. All the teams brought gifts to exchange and the Mardi Gras beads were flying! :)

Emily needs a shower!!

A bridal shower, that is! Emily Broussard is just like part of our family and she is getting married in a couple of weeks so a bunch of her family and friends threw her a shower at our house. Rich bought her the flowers all on his own. I thought that was sweet!

Here's Em with Savannah.

Emily opened a gift from her little sister, Alaina. We had lots of food and fun!

Girl's Camp!

Okay, I know Girl's Camp is supposed to be about the YW, but we have as much or more fun than the girls! This is a picture of the Latrini Sisters. The people may change from year to year, but the Latrini Sisters have been making an appearance at the Baton Rouge Stake Girl's Camp for the last 8 years. We sing about things at camp to popular songs that the young women all know. Believe it or not, the girls LOVE this and we feel like rock stars! We are very serious about it and we choreograph each number and practice for weeks before. This year it was me, Claudia Thomas, Emily Broussard, and Jenny Bates. Rock on sistas!!

Savannah and her friend Sarah were Hannah Montana and Lola Luftnangle in our ward skit. I think Sav looks good with red hair!

We went to a camp called Woodman of the World in Forest Hills, LA and it was much better than the place we went the year before. These are girls in our ward after water games with their bishop.

Here's the whole group in their camp t-shirts (they are awesome!) with the bishop and branch president after a devotional. They brought us yummy watermelon to eat. Camp is always a blast!
