Vacation Days 3 & 4

We woke up early in our vacation condo on Saturday morning and explored our 2-room condo that would be our home for the next week, and then unpacked.

That morning,  Gregg and I attended a welcome breakfast by the management and the director and regular guests were so informative about what was good to see where, which tours to use for what, and local attractions worth trying out.  When we finished there, we went to a local grocery store, bought supplies for a picnic lunch, and headed to the Fontainebleau State Park on the north shore of Lake Ponchetrain.

We had lunch, enjoying hummus, pita bread, and some fresh fruit.  Then, the boys played in the splash park while Kaylee enjoyed soaking up some sun.

When we got back to our condo, Kaylee and I went to the grocery store and bought supplies for the week.

Sunday morning I cooked breakfast.


After, we found a First Church of God church in the area and attended.  We LOVED that service and enjoyed ourselves so much.  After church, we took a swamp tour in Honey Island Cypress Swamp.  That was fun – the guide called alligators over, pointed out snakes and wildlife, and took us deep into the swamp to a shore where some wild boars greeted us.  It was interesting to see the homes of people to arrive to and from their house via boat.

Sunday evening, we fired up the grill and cooked all of the meat we’d bought for the week (steak, chicken, hamburgers, sausages) so that we didn’t have to worry about sharing the 2 grills with 8 other families all week long.
