We took a picture in front of this church...but for some reason I cannot find it on the camera. I guess the guy didn't hold the button long enough...bummer! So, here is the church!
We didn't have time for a riverboat ride...but it sure looks fun.
There is always time to stop in to Margaritaville!
Here is the living room/sitting area...
Here is a view of the kitchen from the dining room...
This is just a picture of Scott on Bourbon Street...did I even need to explain that?
And, here is one of those typical N.O. sites...a funeral procession. I only took pictures because it was a mock procession for those morbid types who wanted to participate in the walk to the cemetary. (If you are one of those people...it's cool...if we had more time we would have done it too!)
And then, Mommy and Daddy got me a little pool for the backyard. This will never make up for the real thing...but it is still pretty darn fun!
Ahhhh! This is the life...such a little princess!
Here are some of the 8th graders...and teachers...cuttin' a rug! I love seeing the boys out there giving it a try!
Here is Scott handing out some awards at the baseball banquet. This was a VERY nice event and the boys had a great time. Not to mention we got to eat some great food!
And, for those of you out there who might have gone to Johnston, Coach Cade is retiring this year. He did amazing things for Johnston in his 25+ years at the school. He raised tons of funds to update the auditorium (now officially called the Charles E. Cade Performing Arts Center) and he was critical in getting Johnston the nicest middle school baseball field in HISD (and I am not just saying this!) For those of you living near Johnston...the reason we still have our old facility is mainly due to the amazing things that this man has done to make our school great just the way it is. So, here is Mr. Cade receiving his Lifetime MVP Award. It is going to be such a sad day tomorrow when we say goodbye!

Gringo got this safety jacket for me...it is very cool...but still a little big. I will have to practice swimming in it.
Until then...my wingies are perfect!
I also learned how to jump off the rocks! I say "unn, doo" (one, two) and put my arms up and jump! Daddy caught me the first few times...but then I just jumped in on my own. I go under and then pop back up laughing!
And...here I am with my Mommy! Happy Mommy's Day!!!
On top of all that, I turned 20 months on Sunday. I am talking more and more and am acting like such a big girl. I still love to eat...but I have slowed down on all of the food, I eat less at each sitting! I love grapes, pineapple, apples, strawberries...ok...I love fruit. I love grilled chicken, eggs and CHEESE! And, much more! I love to sing songs and have conversations. They don't always make sense...but I try. I love to say "Mommy, Mommy" and jump up and down...it is all about the jump! I got my first bloody nose today after a rough spill...which means that I am even more tough than back at 19 months! I sit on the potty and say "peepee...poopoo" but nothing has come out yet. I am trying! Stay tuned...things are getting exciting. Mommy and Daddy only have 12 school days left...look out summer here we come!
Anna and I jumped and jumped...until Dani came...and then I chased the big girls around. I am getting close to catching up...
Hey guys! Check out my pig tail...I actually kept it in!
I love to drive...except I must be used to European rules...
Austin and I did some serious digging.
We walked in and found Katie sitting in her wagon like this the other morning. She is so silly...she will sit there forever!
Here's Katie helping Mommy drink her daily water...too bad she wasted so much on her shirt!
Relaxing at Aunt Sharon and Uncle Gordon's house. Could someone get me a drink?
This is Diva's Derby de Mayo hat...she wore it to a Kentucky Derby/Cinco de Mayo party! Don't I look GOOD?!?!
Have I told you lately that I love the water?
Aunt Sharon's pool is still a little cool...so we had to settle for swimming in the hot tub...works for me!

Mimi sure made me happy swinging me, chasing me and feeding me cake!
Check out the cake!
After cake...it was time to dance! Can you tell that I love to dance?
The big kids did a "performance" which consisted of dancing to Hannah Montana songs. Well...I can dance! So, I thought I would add my boogie to the dancing group!
I guess the night is over...slamming the guitar and crying...Mommy, put down the camera and TAKE ME HOME!
I also loved driving the yellow car...I was so fast! And, I was the only kiddo on the ride, so I got to drive around in circles FOREVER! Just ask my Mommy!
And, I picked the ducks just right and won a stuffed puppy...but I insist to everyone that it is a "kitty cat"!
Yummy frozen lemonade!
