"KJ" the "girl cousin"
"The Cousins" made it in Sunday night. Miss Priss and Italian Boy drove with me to New Orleans to retrieve them from the airport there and bring them back to Baton Rouge.
Monday, "Miss Priss" and I decided to take cousin "KJ" to our FAVORITE French restaurant here in Baton Rouge...."Le Madelines." We had.....
French Dips with Pesto Pasta salad and our FAV soup..Tomato Basil.
Love that stuff, the Tomato Basil is their trademark soup that they also sell in jars that you can purchase and bring home. Yum!

What do you think of it?
"Miss Priss and KJ"
Miss Priss has always looked HUGE beside her cousin even though she isn't....because KJ is so very tiny.
Tuesday we went back to New Orleans so we could show them the French Quarter and around town a bit.
St. Louis Cathedral, New Orleans
"The Twins..."K and KJ" in New Orleans
"The Three Cousins" in the French Quarter
"KJ in the Jimmy Buffet 'Margaritaville Shop' wearing a Cheeseburger hat.
"K" on the phone with a friend back home in Iowa"
"Miss Priss, Italian Boy, K and KJ"
"Miss Priss and Italian Boy" at the "Cafe Du Monde."
We ordered "Beignets" there.....because you just have to if you go to the French Quarter. It's traditional!
Beignets are "Square French Doughnuts" basically...with tons of powdery sugar goodness sprinkled all over them.
"KJ and her brother K" eating Beignets...messy but GOOOOOOD!
"K, Miss Priss, Italian Boy and KJ" on the Mississippi River Levee in New Orleans.
A couple of "fun facts" really quick.
#1. Miss Priss is 5 months older than "the Cousins".......who are twins...
#2. "KJ" was born first and "K" was born LAST and is the BIGGER of the twins....can you tell??
#3. It was HOT as a BLAST Furnace yesterday in New Orleans and very humid....which we are pretty accustomed to.
However...."the Cousins" were dying. Especially boy cousin......"K" who I chided the entire time for being a "weenie."
#4. We only stayed a bit over 3 hours....because they couldn't take the heat. HA!
#5. Luke hasn't been going with us much because he works all the time...and Caleb is in Florida and will be coming home on Friday so I will have to snap some photos of them with the cousins when I can.Oh well....
"Laissez bon temps roulette" we did "Let the good times Roll"...well....basically in plain terms...."a good time" was still had by all.
Today we are getting "rain bands" from Hurricane Dolly so it is cooling us down a bit along with occasional rain.
More new later.....
And I will post new photos of the kitchen remodel at some point. It's going VERY good. Thankfully!!!!
