Taylor Farmer's Market

Recently we have been attending the Taylor Farmers Market in Taylor, Mississippi. We have been going for several weeks now and make it a family outing. It is on Saturday mornings and lasts from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. We wake up very early get packed up and set off for a fun day of selling soap, enjoying local bands and Mr. John Daigle singing and playing the banjo in the morning, and enjoying the bounty that is brought in front of us weekly in the form of baked, preserved, and fresh fruits, vegetables, breads and goodies. Also within walking distance, of the market is a beautiful new neighborhood called Plein Air, and Antique shop, and a great restaurant called Emileigh's that serves a wonderful breakfast and lunch daily. A friend of mine and her children who makes great lemonade, fresh juice, and teas take pictures while we are out there. Here is the link:

First Haircut...Yes, it finally happened!

It is official! Noah has had his first haircut. The beautiful blonde curls are gone. Here is how it happened.

First we put his hair in pony tails so I could save the curls.

It was a bit of a game until we sat him in the chair and things got serious. When the cape came out he got worried.

He calmed down and the pony tails came off and that was enough for him.

After he calmed down again and the clippers came out he thought it was fun to be tickled.

So Here is the new Noah!

Louisiana In July

For the Fourth of July we went to Louisiana to visit Grandparents and other family. While there we went to a few places that we just miss seeing. Eventually I will add more...when they get developed.This first picture is at Cypress Lake in Lafayette, Louisiana on the University of Louisiana, Lafayette Campus. The alligators shown were just a few feet from us at the wall.

These pictures were taken at a park near the University. The turtle on the right was at this park when my sister, brother and I were babies. We try to take pictures there every year. It is fun to go back and see pictures as the kids and the concrete turtle changes over the years.
