We had a great visit in Louisiana. Neo and Kam played together almost non-stop. It is fun seeing them grow together. They played with the NERF guns Paw-paw bought quite a bit. They also went and picked a ton of blackberries, ate ice-cream, and went to see Spider-man 3.

One reason for the trip for us was to catch up with Emily since we couldn't be there for her graduation last weekend. We went over to Brent and Em's place on Saturday night and watched the UFC pay-per-view event. They introduced us to the sport, which we thought was pretty exciting. Now we just need to introduce them to Battlestar Galactica :) Thanks guys. We had a great time. We also gave Emily the graduation gift that we made for her. It's a paint brush holder/washer. We saw one like this online, but it was pretty expensive for such a small thing, so we decided to build a similar one. We decided not to use the steel canisters and also to make the cup disposable instead of using a fixed stainless steel cup. The other thing we did was make it non-symmetrical on purpose. So, one swing arm is longer than the other and we used various sized holes in the back. We put about 4 coats of polyurethane on it so it has quite a bit of shine. It also has some rubber feet on the bottom. I am really excited about the end result, and I think Em liked it too. Much of my excitement was because it was kind of my first detail oriented, small wood project.

The other thing we accomplished was collecting lots of old baby stuff that was in Louisiana - things that we had from when Neo was born and also some things that other people are sharing with us. Thanks to everyone who has helped us put all this together. This is going to save us quite a bit of money.

Pictures from our visit, mostly of the boys playing, are here.

Lastly, on this Memorial Day, we would like to thanks all those in our family who have spent time defending our country. Paw-Paw G. gave many years of service in World War II. Paw-paw Bergeron spent time in Korea, and Mr. Travis just recently returned home from Iraq. Thank you guys for your service. We all appreciate it.
