We're back...

For those of you that don't know, Aunt Karen and I left early Saturday morning going to see Kelly, Anthony and Nora Claire in South Louisiana. Now you may be asking yourself...didn't those two crazy ladys know that Hurricane Gustav was coming??? YES, we knew, but we also knew that even if it was coming Kelly and Nora Claire didn't need to stay there if it did. Can you imagine having a week old baby with a hurricane coming towards you? Poor Kelly and Anthony had to decide what HAD to go, and what could stay and be replaced if their house did get damaged. So, Aunt Karen and I enjoyed hanging out with Nora Claire while Momma and Daddy decided what was coming to Arkansas and what was staying.

This is Nora Claire ready for her first roadtrip to Arkansas with the crazy
This is what traffic looked like at times on the interstate. We really were lucky in that most of the way home the traffic wasn't bad and was flowing.

So, Kelly and Nora Claire will be staying in Arkansas for a few days to wait out the storm while Anthony stayed behind with Nemo and June (their other babies) at home to make sure the house is okay and that there aren't any looters that get in there to take the things that were left behind. On the good side, I happen to know some pretty happy grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that are happy that Kelly and Nora Claire are here for a visit!

After going down and coming back from Crowly, LA within 24 hours I managed to stay in bed until 9:30 this morning. Boy was that great!

Thanks again for going Blake.
