A couple weeks ago my little brother came to visit because he had a work conference in New Orleans. This was his first time in Louisiana so we had to show him what we do for fun :)
We wrestle alligators! We actually went on a swamp tour at Lake Martin and our guide caught this alligator that we all got to hold. (Well, maybe I didn't hold it, but I touched it ) It bit some old dude's finger when he tried to hold it.
We eat hot stuff! We went to the Tabasco Factory where Rich and Rendell posed with this hot pepper eating fish statue.
We drive old man creeper cars! Not really- but this is what the rental car place gave Rendell to drive! Savannah said it looked like a creeper car so she sat in the roomy trunk to prove it. We ate some good old Cajun Food and had a great visit. We love to have visitors :)

Since it's just the three of us at home these days, we decided to spend some quality time together on a Halloween project. Rich is really getting into it :)
Sav and I sampled the frosting.
Here's the finished project- good thing it's suppose to be a SCARY house!

So it's been awhile since we've posted anything on the old blog, but not a whole heckuva lot had been going on with the Stewarts. (Actually, Hunter and Bree have been pretty busy, but you'll have to check out Bree's blog to see what they're up to these days) Rich and I recently took a trip to. . . you guessed it. . . New York! One of my favorite places on the planet :) We met my mom and her husband, Wayne - who had never been there before- and crammed all kinds of fun into a long weekend. This picture is the view from our awesome hotel room smack dab inthe middle of Times Square.
We happened to find this restaurant where they filmed Seinfeld and decided we had to eat there. Once inside, we realized they only used the outside for the show. The inside was way smaller and looked nothing like the inside of the restaurant on the show.
Of course, this is my main reason for going to New York City- to see the EXCELLENT theatre!! We went to a show every night we were there, plus a spur of the moment matinee. Besides this show, we saw Mary Poppins, Promises, Promises, and Billy Elliot.
Here we are at the Top of the Rock observation deck. You can see Central Park in the background. This was a really cool view of the whole island. We also made it to the Statue of Liberty and a two day double decker bus tour all over the city. We were able to see quite a bit during our short stay. I'm already wanting to go back :)
