We’ve taken our kids and our grandkid to New  Orleans for family outings as long as we’ve had kids and a grandkid.  Last weekend, while the big kids ran the Rock n Roll Marathon in our queen city, Honey and Papa babysat the little one.  From the French Quarter to City Park, from early morning until early afternoon, we cheered the runners and spoiled the granddaughter to the point of weariness.

Of course, weary in those terms really isn’t weary.  It’s what grandparents do as long as God blesses them with health and vitality.

Long live family-filled


Traditions: Beignets and cafe au lait along the race way!

Crescent City memories, and long live grand-parenting!
