Life is INSANE right now people. INSANE. So I’m updating you on my life piece by piece. I have ninety trillion things I want to tell you about – but for now? Some pictures from Thanksgiving 2004.
MrZ and his PRETTY pink suitcase. This is at the train station in Birmingham waiting for our train which was an hour late. Yes, an HOUR late. And just for the record…the Birmingham train station is VERY boring. VERY.
This is the crew on the platform waiting to get on the train. From left to right is BroA (MrZ’s bro), GrandmaH (MrZ’s mom), GrandpaH (MrZ’s dad), and Kay (BroA’s Girlfriend). We’re a bunch of troublemakers – that’s for sure!
BroZ and GrandmaH waiting to order lunch in the dining cart on the train. I was in my seat playing with my laptop because I’m a geek.
GrandpaH and MrZ. I’m in this photo too because MrZ is on the phone with me trying to figure out what to bring me back to eat. I mean – us geeks need to eat too, right?
This is what I look like when I’m so cold I want to cry. And I swear we arent drunk or stoned in this picture. At least I dont think we were…
This is the view from the house we stayed in. This is a lake house that belongs to MrZ’s uncle’s family. They all share it and the six of us stayed there during our trip. That’s Lake Ponchartrain and if you look closely – you can see the New Orleans skyline across the way.
Kay and BroA breaking the wishbone…I love this picture because the smiles are so sincere. After hours of smiling for photographs its hard to catch a natural smile…this one is a great shot.
MrZ working on his 2nd helping of Cajun Fried Turkey. And did I mention we are a FOUR TURKEY family? There were FORTY+ people at our Thanksgiving dinner. And we STILL had leftovers!
As the old saying goes…the road to Hell is paved with delicious desserts. I hovered over this bar for the entire night cramming in more food as even the smallest bit of space cleared in my stomach.
That’s all for now…I’ll post more from our boatride on the Bayou later…
