Vacation stops...Audubon Zoo


On the last day we decided to go in to New Orleans and go somewhere different, the Audubon Zoo was the perfect stop.  Although with the temperatures of near 100 and humidity, the aquarium probably would have been more comfortable.  It seemed like many of the animals did not mind the weather, except for us!  My favorites were the flamingos and the Kookaburras.  When we walked up to the Kookaburra, I sang the song to my daughter and when I was done they laughed!  I think my daughter was startled by them but I loved it!

Vacation stops continued....


Since we were a part of the heat wave of the south, we took a day and went to Waveland on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.  My daughter was itching to go to a beach.  When we went here about two years ago, there was still little rebuilding from Katrina, it looked like a lot of open space where there use to be back to back cottages, what you would expect to see along a shoreline.  Going back here I was surprised to see it still was the same!  Very little development, only a few big homes right on the water.  No tar balls here to report.

A wonderful cake for a wonderful woman, loved by many!  A birthday celebration was organized and Rita was the Queen of it all, in " Ball Style".  It was great to see everyone all together.

Vacation stops



This year's vacation was to Mississippi for my husband's Grandmother's 90th Birthday party.  We decided to drive there and making a few key stops along the way.  One was to see the Yankee Farm team in Scranton, Pennsylvania for a game.  They happened to be playing right behind our hotel, and got great seats!


My daughter loved it and also walked away with a pop fly ball pitched by Kei Igawa, he was in the NYY, a high priced pitcher who was sent down to the minors.  It was an exciting start to our vacation.
