National Cheer Competition in NOLA

Last weekend, Alise had a national cheer competition in New Orleans. It was the biggie!!

Wayne and I took off work {Alise was already out of school} and headed south Friday morning.

Or so we thought.

We made it about three miles down the road and all of the service lights began to come on in the truck and it would barely run even though Wayne had the pedal to the floor. we went to the service department where we bought the truck. The long and short of it is, it had to do with the valves, emission, fuel, blah, blah, blah. The cost was $3,000. HOWEVER, it was covered by a "customer service warranty" that the dealership provided and all I could do was thank the good Lord that he was watching over us and that there was such a thing as a "customer service warranty." The dealership shuttled Wayne back home to pick up my car and within an hour and a half later, we were on the road again headed to New Orleans.

We stopped in Natchez and I got to tell Alise all about the antebellum homes. We stopped at the antebellum home of the Rosalie to stretch our legs. Natchez holds a special place in our hearts because that's where Wayne and I went on our honeymoon.

We had lunch in Baton Rouge and shopped at the outlet stores in Gonzales for a few hours. We had dinner at Mike Anderson's and it was SO good! Then we headed on down to New Orleans.

The girls cheered both Saturday and Sunday and won FIRST PLACE nationally!! We were SOO proud of them! If you saw the picture on Facebook, the trophy was five feet tall!!

Proud parents indeed!
