Most people thought I was crazy when I told them what Andy and I had planned for our anniversary, but I could think of no better way to celebrate it. It was the first day of our summer vacation, so we took a little road (with all three kids) to Vacherie, Louisiana. We wanted to show the kids where mommy and daddy got married! I didn't get those canvas-worthy pictures because of all the people, but I got some great ones that capture the memories of our day there. Silas and Meredith really surprised me by how much they actually enjoyed the tour of the house. We had a real "Cajun" tour guide that told the story of the house. When we saw my mom the next day, Meredith said, "Maw Maw, you know that man bought that house for his wife, but she didn't want it. No, she wanted to live in the city in New Orleans!" It was really a great day spent with our kids where we were married exactly 8 years ago that day! Oh, and the necklace Mere is wearing is the one I wore on our wedding day!
