Jamie had to have some medical work done last month so she flew me to Louisiana to help her with Kaylee and Blake. Kaylee was so excited, she ran through security before my plane had even landed. A kind TSA agent escorted her back to Jamie, but by then Kaylee was freaked out. So when I fianlly got there, Kaylee was not to sure whether it was okay to approach me. On the way home from the airport in Alexandria, we were delighted to find a Logan's Roadhouse, which Ben and Jamie discovered in Texas. It was the perfect place to stop for lunch, and Kaylee loved being able to open the peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. Look at how cute Blake is with a part in his hair! Kaylee was 4 in October and Blake is 20 months old.
Jamie's friend took her to the hospital early that morning, then later Blake and I took Kaylee to preschool and then we went to Wal-mart. I thought there was team spirit in Texas and in Boise, but they have nothing compared to those LSU and Saints fans in Louisiana. Every store in town had a huge section of LSU and Saints gear. And there were flags, signs and stickers everywhere. The Sunday paper had a four page spread on just the LSU game, and that was the small town Alexandria newspaper. Everyone was so warm and friendly, taking southern hospitality to a new level.
The kids were angels for me, but they were so glad to see their mom later that night. By the end of the week Jamie was feeling better and we did a little shopping and even found a darling new quilt shop in Leesville, the next town over.
