A Grand Weekend

What a full weekend! Grandbabies and daughters and sons-in-law, brother and sister-in-law, and Laddie. My ears are still ringing a little from all of the chatter.

Saturday morning Mila and I walked, tricycled, and work in the yard. She's a great little helper! Then crawfish and beer in the afternoon with my daughters dominating the conversation...chatter, chatter, chatter. Perfectly beautiful afternoon for sitting outside eating crawfish and drinking beer.

Max is the funniest, fat, little boy; he laughs and watches and always seems happy and content.

Saturday afternoon was ribs and bar-b-qued chicken, beans, corn on the cob. Another relaxing day of perfect weather. Mila planted more caladiums, tricycled, and generally kept herself active. When they all crashed for their afternoon nap, Fee and I sat around and appreciated the fact that the weather had been so cooperative for this visit.

They didn't leave until 6:00. Erin went back to Alexandria for her trial (Eric and the kids joined her there on Friday, and they came here in one car), and Eric and the kids were probably going to stay there before heading back to Baton Rouge this morning. He is on spring break so there was no rush for him to get back to work.

I know it is hard for them that Erin's work with the A.G.'s office requires travel, but she rarely has to go very far. She is only in Alexandria because the local D.A. had to recuse himself.

Laddie has a doctor's appt. this morning, so I've got to go ahead and get dressed, but boy, I'm feeling lazy.


  1. It sounds like a perfect family weekend ... relaxed, easy and happy company, plus you got some help with the spring yard work. Good going!

  2. oh it is snowing here so I do enjoy hearing about outside meals and garden activities! Thought I commented earlier but apparently it didn't go through ...

  3. Jen, I enjoyed reading about your wonderful weekend, but I feel tired now! Ha
    I also have a grandson Max who keeps my heart full of joy. There's NOTHING like grands...they are the loves of my life.
    I'm happy that your weekend was so full of fun, joy, contentment, and everything else.
    Hooray for weekends with the grandchildren :D

  4. Nellie - I especially appreciated the help in the garden. Watching a little one enjoy gardening is so much fun.

    ACey - Oh, more snow! I can barely imagine that now, ACey.

    Conni - Thanks, and I'm still recovering, too. Another Max! Yes, Grands are wonderful.

  5. What??! No pictures!! You know I love to see that little Mila scooting around and being so important!

  6. Debra- :) They are up now!

  7. Sounds wonderful. I'll bet you're tired.


Good to hear from you!
