My favorite place on earth . . .

. . . the beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A few days after we had company, Savannah and I took off for Pensacola Beach, Florida to meet Jackie, Clay, my mom, my sister, Jennifer and her husband, Dave, and her daughter, Zia. We had a great time hanging out on the beach, laughing and eating out. It is always sooooo relaxing! That's why it's my favorite place on earth.

Zia- my super cute little niece!

White sand and emerald green water- beautiful-

Sav enjoys shopping for shoes with her Uncle Dave :)

We love our relatives!!

We don't have many visitors here in Louisiana since our relatives mostly live in the Western part of the United States, but my sister-in-law, Jackie and her son, Clay, stopped by on their way to Florida. We got to spend a couple of days with them and made our first stop at one of Lafayette's yummy restaurants, Riverside Inn. We fed the fish in the swampy pond while we waited for a table. If you've never tried a Sweet Potato Beignet, this is the place to have one! Excellent!!

We took a trip out to the ole Tabasco Factory in New Iberia and Sav and cousin Clay are being dramatic.

These next two pictures are at Lake Martin. It was hot and humid, but they had to see some gators while they were here.

Happy Birthday Hunter!!

Gone are the days of the Pirate or sports themed parties! When you're a 17 year old boy, all you want is a giant cookie cake, your best friends from Houston to spend the week staying up 'til 4 AM every night with, and MONEY!! Happy birthday Hunter- we love you!!

Happy 4th!!

This is what we saw above our heads in front of our house for the 4th of July! We had an awesome show (as usual) since you can buy any size and any amount of fireworks here in Lafayette :)

Our friends, The Nelsons, came over with their HUGE amount of stuff to blow up so it was double the fun! Not to mention that our next door neighbors who also fired off their fair share.

This is the demented tradition (for 6 or 7 years running) of Hunter and his friends Mike and Clayton. Every New Year's Eve and 4th of July they blow up baby dolls. I know, it's scary.

They are tying together 24 big ones to blow up all at once. I think there is a video of this somewhere on the internet. Good times.

Bree's visit & Emily's Wedding

This was about as decent of a picture I could get of Emily and her new husband Kevin in front of the Temple. This was in Baton Rouge and Bree came home for it. She only stayed a few days, so we don't have too many pics.

We are at Emily's reception in Lafayette.

Here is "Big Sister" Emily with all her "siblings!" Those are the Nielsen boys with the Stewart gang :)
