A rainy Independence Day

Here's what's been going on with us.

One of our assistants was nice enough to take the two girls we had left in the home (the others were on home visits) home for the holiday. She took them about 3 pm yesterday and will bring them back later tonight. So, Matt & I have been relaxing and shopping a lot in the past day. Last night we went to explore a new mall, Lakeside. It was a nice mall with a mix of nicer stores (J. Crew, Banana Republic, Coach, etc.) and average stores (Old Navy, American Eagle, Aeropostale). We enjoyed shopping and Matt ended up buying a few things. We also had beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde in the mall. Yum!

We slept in this morning and then headed over to the Friendship House about 11 am. They were supposed to have a cookout, but no one showed up from the community, so we just hung out with everyone. It was fun just hanging out with people and not worrying about our girls. Later on we went to Target (yes, the 2 story one) and Sears. We walked out of Target empty handed (that is a rare occurance), but I got some bermuda shorts and a skirt at Sears.

We came home and took a nap and now we're just being lazy. Actually, we're watching Cops and it's a special on Mardi Gras in New Orleans--they're arresting all these people who are fighting. We have a lot to look forward to! We can't wait for our first Mardi Gras!
