Winter Break Update

Here are a few things I've been up to over break. Whitney and I got digital cameras! Hers is very nice, (see below), mine is ok.

On Colin's Birthday the power went out for a few hours.

I got a jewlery tree (like lauren.)

My drawing table finnaly got some attention.

Some white board fun: Whitney at Track and Field day 1997, and no we did not get a cat for Christmas.

More documentation from my trip to New Orleans, I bought a 10 pack of Polaroids and used them sparingly. Photos include: a haunted mansion I stayed at, a family crab boil, and some textures at a graveyard and hurricane destroyed house.

New Orleans Part One: Swamp Tour

For my first full day in N.O. I went on a swamp tour with some of my family. We drove out to the "west bank", about 20 min. from down town N.O. to Jean Lafitte's Swamp. We stopped on the way for some Po' boys.

The parking lot was quite a scene, cats were roaming all over,

there were plenty of souvenirs, including gator pencils:

The swamp itself was a sight to behold, so different than anything up north.

Here is our tour guide, he said he doesn't live in a shack like Bobby Bouchet from The Waterboy, but his grandparents did.

Since it is winter, the big gators were hibernating, so we only saw baby gators. Spot the gator:

There was a gator on board the boat that we passed around:

I'll have to go back in the spring when the gators are huge and come up to the boat begging for marshmallows.
