Perry and Thomas had a beautiful Saturday morning for a round of golf, while I hung out with Leslie, Mimi, Pop, Emily, & the girls. We didn't even go anywhere all morning, we just played games and talked. That night we had a very decadent meal - Pop cooked his famous ribs, and they were his best batch ever. Mimi boiled a bunch of shrimp to go with it, and we all ate until we were miserable. That night, S&A had a slumber party at Emily's house, so P & I watched the Alabama game with Mimi, Pop, and Thomas and also kept our eye on the storm.
Sunday morning we got up early, even though S&A weren't there to wake us up. But it was very nice to have time for coffee and breakfast without little ones running around! We decided we should head back in the morning because of the Louisiana evacuations. We got on the interstate before 11am, but that was probably a couple of hours too late. The traffic was bumper-to-bumper, with most of the cars from Louisiana. As awful as it was, I really felt sorry for those people evacuating. It took us about 5 hours to get home, which wasn't too bad considering the circumstances.
We enjoyed our day off today. The girls and I met Debbie Debbie at the mall to look for school shoes, this afternoon they had ballet, and tonight we had dinner at a neighbor/friend's house. Tomorrow it's back to our routine.
