Louisiana Trip 08
Kent posted this in the middle of the night yesterday and surprised me with it in the morning. When I saw it, I asked him why he did not post a message with it, and he told me that writing was my area of expertise. So, I am now adding a little note of explanation to this blog for all of you that were questioning it. We actually went on this trip to Louisiana the day before Christmas last year. So many things happened this year, we are making up for lost time. Kent's brother Don lives in Plaquemine, Louisiana which is just across the Mississippi river from Baton Rouge. We had never visited him before so we decided to go with Kent's parents for Holiday break. So we loaded up the mini van and headed cross country. The two week long trip consisted of driving for 6 days, and visiting friends, family and the cool sights the rest of the time. This is actually just a few of the pics; we took over 150 pictures during the trip. These pictures include me and Kent's trip to the french quarter at New Orleans with his Dad (Grandma kept the girls entertained at Don's house), a trip to the wild animal park with the whole family, pics with the cousins (Sydni, Haley, Grant and Gabriel), a visit to a swamp (How often do you get to see a swamp when you live in the middle of the desert?), and we were even able to see some friends of ours Trevor, Whitni, and Aisling Wright who moved there from Utah a couple years ago. We had a ton fun, and if we could afford it, we would pile in the van again for another visit this Christmas.
My husband and I have been married for 10 years. We have two beautiful daughters Aurora,6, and Brianna 3. We recently moved back to my home town of Las Vegas, Nevada. It is strange to be back after being gone for 11 yrs. It is nice being close to my family again, but we do miss Utah.
Kent is a 6 grade life science teacher for O'Callaghan Middle school here in Vegas. He really enjoys teaching the six graders. He is also the assistant coach for the school girl's basketball team, and is busy still going to school for himself. The girls favorite time with their daddy is wrestle time which happens on friday nights. Soon as he gets home for school Bri asks if it is wrestle time yet. They love their Daddy!
A little about me, well, let's see. I enjoy reading, crafts, watching good movies, helping ladies feel good about themselves, and spending time with my family and friends. I am first and foremost a mom and I love being a mom. I love being able to stay at home with my girls. I have just started a new adventure as a preschool teacher which I run out of my house, and has been a lot fun.
This is our fiesty 7 year old, Aurora. She enjoys doing crafts, watching T.V. , and playing with her sister. She is in first grade and attends Bracken Magnet Empowerment school. She loves math and science and we really encourage her in her abilities.
This is our 4 year old Brianna. She loves playing with her big sister, playing with her dolly, and running around outside. She goes to preschool with mommy, and loves to go to the park and library during the day. She is very whimsical, and we often catch her making up her own songs and dancing to them. She loves everybody she meets!
