Guste Island, which is a neighborhood close by. From the road it looks like a regular neighborhood, but just past the apartments and first neighborhood, you are greeted by the SWAMP!
Of course a Louisiana swamp has alligators, but unfortunately we didn't see any. If you want to see one check out http://www.eddzphotojournal.blogspot.com/ look at "Spot the Alligator." We saw plenty of cool trees! This is one that Bethany liked...
We thought it would be fun to live over here by the swamp! :)
Here's B enjoying her first day of summer!
Meanwhile, the kids got home from school just after lunchtime!
Aimee reported that there were only 9 kids in her class!!! She and her friends helped their teacher, Mrs Dronet. They had fun spending their last day together!
Mattie was sad that school was over. She said she was really going to miss her teacher, Mrs Hanagriff!
When Andrew got home, he was ready to leave school behind and didn't give me many details.
Edd came home early and we all headed out to Baton Rouge. It was ward temple night, so Edd dropped Bethany and me off at the temple. Before we arrived at the temple, Edd drove us through the part of town where he and his family used to live!
The youth were doing baptisms for the dead. I was the only Young Women leader there so I helped hand out towels. This was the first time I got to go as a leader! :)
The rest of the gang headed over to Cabela's and had a grand adventure there! When Bethany and I were all done, Edd came and picked us back up. We went to Chick-fil-a for dinner! :) Our drive home took forever!!! We couldn't go on I-12 because it had been shut down for a day due to an accident they were still trying to clean up. So we ended up taking HWY 190, along with a ton of other cars!
We were so glad when we finally got home! It was a LONG but FUN day! :)
WE LOVE SUMMER!!! :)
