We have returned from our journey south. It was great to see all of Tim's immediate family all at one time, even if it was for a brief time. While our kids have met all of their cousins before, this was the first time they were with all of their cousins on Tim's side all at the same time! They all got along quite well and it was great to catch up a bit.
We then made our way to New Orleans where we were able to spend more time with Tim's sister, brother-in-law and their kids. We had the chance to visit his grandmother again for a while as well. She is simply an amazing woman.
We also had the chance to do some reminiscing in New Orleans which is where we met for the first time, sixteen years ago! The kids do not have the memories associated with the city so they were not quite as impressed but I'm glad they had the chance to see it nonetheless.
Though we spent more time in the car than we did in any one place, it was well worth the trip!
Now we are keeping our eye on Dennis as he steadily approaches the U.S. We have family that will be affected a bit no matter where he actually hits but we're praying that it won't be a direct course for New Orleans or Pensacola. (Of course, I don't wish a hurricane on anyone's front steps)! Maybe this one can spontaneously combust! Y'all had enough of these last year and they're starting a bit earlier this season. Take care!
