two weeks and 2340 miles

(On the road. Somewhere between BR and Houston)

(Galveston, Texas)

(Hello! from the NASA Space Center in Houston, Texas)

(Boots etc in Gonzales, Louisiana)

(Beignets at Coffee Call in BR)

(State Capital in Jackson, Mississippi)

(Dinner at Huey's in Memphis, Tennessee)


(On the way to Shreveport, Louisiana)

Some photos from our mini road trips, and time in and around BR with Jon's family, who spent two weeks with us recently. It was really great to see them, and
a little more of this big, big country.

We managed to cover quite a few miles in their short visit. We picked them up from the airport in Houston, and spent a couple of nights in Texas (in Humble and strange, kind-of-beach town, Galveston) before heading back to BR for a few days. Over the Easter long weekend, we drove up to Memphis. We spent two nights there, and got to look around Beale St and Downtown, and fit in a visit to Graceland.
On the way back, we stopped in at Little Rock (Arkansas) and spent a night in Shreveport (Louisiana). We spent their last night here in New Orleans, where we
ate ourselves silly – red beans and rice, gumbo, jambalaya and beignets (too many beignets! Maybe... if there is such a thing?!)

It was so nice to have family with us for a little while. While their visit seemed to
go quickly, the time we spent together felt full, with all the things we got see and do. It was lots of fun. Thanks for visiting us, family!
