Home after a week in the swamps

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

We just pulled in after spending a week at Lake Chicot outside of Ville Platte, LA. My awesome in-laws rented a couple of cabins that shared a dock right on the water.

con: I ate dessert at least twice a day for a week (we were celebrating two birthdays).
pro: I was on my feet fishing, walking, or playing w/ the niece & nephews from 7 am til 10 pm every day. I did not take one nap.

con: I caught only one fish
pro: My niece/nephew caught dozens of fish; my 10-yr-old niece is now a fisherwoman for life

con: I'm covered in mosquito bites
pro: I didn't get sunburned (have no idea how I managed that)

con: I had to listen to my beloved Saints on the radio Thursday night.
pro: They won!

con: We had to board Jolie
pro: Her new groomer is awesome

con: The only people we saw were the park employees.
pro: The only people we saw were the park employees.

We had a great time. DH and I are exhausted!
