The kids go back to school on the 8th – woot woot. I mean, I will just cry and cry all day *sniff sniff* (evil laugh inserted here)!!! Anyhoo, my parents are here this last week of vacation. We have been busy doing all kinds of touristy stuff and going out to eat (yay – no cooking for me). Thought I’d give you a little roundup of what’s we’ve been up to.
The Satchmo Festival was fantabulous. Sherm (my dad), was in heaven after listening to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (he was a musician). He said that was one of the best bands he had ever heard (remember – he is selectively deaf & only can’t hear my mother). He couldn’t stop smiling and talking about it all the way home! Walter Payton singing and dancing to “I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate,” was my favorite part!
I got a whole bunch of boxes mailed off overseas to soldiers this week – phew. Let me know if you want to do anything to support the troops – I can help!
El Whoppo was sighted by our boat at the Honey Island Swamp Tour today. My parents and family thoroughly enjoyed it and Charlie out captain/guide was great!
Insta-Gator Ranch was a great take for a rainy afternoon. From 7-79 – everyone enjoyed it!
We’ve also filled our tummies at Crazy Johnnie’s, Times Grill in Slidell and Copeland’s in Metairie. YUM!!!

Make sure you try Drago’s (metairie) if you haven’t already. Also, my parents love to go to The Galley on Old Metairie Rd.
