Weekend adventures

Last weekend, Matt & I had the pleasure of going on our church's (Redeemer Presbyterian) marriage retreat. On the way to the retreat, we stopped in Baton Rouge to see some sites. We went to the Louisiana Arts and Science Museum, where the Jim Henson exhibit was there from the Smithsonian! We also walked along the riverfront (yes, the mighty Mississippi). We had a great time in Baton Rouge and a wonderful time at the marriage conference. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment...

The old state capital (looks like a castle)...look how small I am!!

It's Kermit the Frog!

It was the Harley-Davidson weekend in Baton Rouge, so we saw LOTS of Harleys!

This random man was on the riverfront...he had his dog in a cage on top of his bike!

Here I am at the Mighty Mississippi (which really isn't that big of a deal since I live 4 blocks from it).

Classic feet picture (though my feet/ankles are starting to swell!)

The Mississippi River again

There were lots of cows at the place we stayed for our retreat and Matt & I tried to go see them, but they kept running away from us.

Our first time seeing a nutria in the wild (not the zoo)...if you don't know what they are,

These are our friends/neighbors Virginia, Matt & their precious baby Caroline

The entire crew at the marriage retreat

And one final picture of me & the hubby on the dock
