I am very blessed to have a wonderful family. We are all extremely close, not just my immediate family, but also my cousins, extended aunts, uncles – all of ‘em. We have family reunions and Bunko parties and trips to Natchez to tour old plantation homes and Carter’s shopping trips and weekends in St. Francisville, and the list goes on and on. I love them all dearly. I find great comfort knowing I have their unconditional support and love. I also know that this type of family unit is not typical, and I am truly, truly blessed beyond comprehension to have been born into this family.
To re-connect on a grander scale, we have family reunions on a bi-annual basis. It’s the ultimate blast – a live band, tons of games, Cajun food and lots of fun. If you don’t understand Cajun speak, you’d be completely lost at our family gatherings. If you don’t like jambalaya and Cajun sausage, well, you’re insane. So, as we say down in Louisiana, laissez les bons temps rouler.
Consequently, the location where the reunion was held is the home of my cousin Lil' Bit. She watches Anna every week, so Anna was right at home.
This is Anna’s swing! She ran right to it and forced her daddy to swing her in it for 5 or 6 hours. Uncle Trent got in the action and pushed Anna for a while. Joe welcomed this time to rest. Time to slide! I’m not sure why she wouldn’t put down her sippy cup the entire time. Her bow was ‘specially made by Ro from Bella Mia Bows & Things. I spy baby butt.

It was a wonderful time! I can't wait for our next reunion.
