Hackberry, LA.

Hackberry, Louisiana. My home for a week this summer. Here are just a few of my favorite shots that I think give a picture into how our week went.

We met so many precious kids at VBS! This is Olivia, Gunner and Genee. They came by one day on their dirtbikes to show us some tricks. Gunner cracked us up by jumping over a table [not on his dirtbike] and by exclaiming, "I'm not five, I'm six. Kids are five!"

We ran into quite a few rain and thunder storms. We didn't mind though, it cooled us off!

One of the junior high boys we met, Clint, showed pigs in 4H. So he invited us over to meet all of the pigs! They were so cute!

Silly bands are a serious epidemic in Louisiana. And now us Puyallup kids are hooked as well. I'm not sure which kid this is, but it could have been any of them. They all had at least 20 or more! And now so do I!!

This is Gunner again. The VBS theme was western, and he was so cute! We loved him! He dressed up like this every night.

Trips to the south are not complete without Chick. Just sayin'.

Some of the high school boys caught us an alligator! Of course they returned it, but they first taped its mouth and brought it to the church late one night to show us! Gators smell. Bad.

Lastly my favorite picture from the week, Hope and Tyler. They were so sweet. I have abotu a million pictures of each of them posing, but this was the only one that was really close to candid. Hope also was my little photographer. She took my camera and took about a million pictures.


  1. That pig is adorable! Oink.

    That gator is a lot bigger than I thought it was.

    That Gunner kid has like the coolest name on the block. :)

  2. And that was the SMALLEST of all the gators we saw!! Ahh. Scary!
