Happy New Year

This past Saturday we went to New Orleans in the morning. We spent time on Magazine Street (which was somewhat depressing because there are so few people down there now) at a few shops and a french bakery and then went over to City Park to let Caroline play at the Storyland Village. Caroline had a great time and Jeff and I enjoyed it too; it is such a joy to watch Caroline play and laugh.

On Sunday we went to the levee in Baton Rouge to let Caroline ride her trike. She has an aversion to pedaling for some reason though and the trike ride quickly turned into Papa carrying the trike and Mama pushing Caroline in the stroller. We also ran down the levee to the batture where there was a huge flock of birds. Caroline was intrigued and we spent some time alternating between just watching them and chasing them around (as you can see from one of pictures below, Jeff had just as much fun as Caroline with the birds).

For New Year's Eve we went to the Northshore and enjoyed a night with friends at Hunter and Jacelyn's and Caroline spent time with a friend of her own and the babysitter at Laura and Seamus' house. On New Year's Day morning we went to Slidell and visited Jeff's parents and then Bobby and Christina. It was good to see everyone and Caroline was seriously worn out after an afternoon of playing with her cousins.

All in all, we are ready to start 2008 on a better note than we left 2007 and pray the same for all of you!
