Every year we have a Cajun Fest here in Iowa called Taste of Louisiana. This is the first year we have gone to it. It was really fun!
Jayden and Mike ate some good ol cajun cookin.. even fried alligator....they told me it tasted like chicken. Rylee was in the kids parade. She looked so cute in her get up she wore. They had carnival rides, bands, food, contests, etc. Mayson took a nice long nap while we were there but it was still a great time!

    Where in Iowa was this celebration. I'm from Iowa also. I like your blog. It reminds me a lot of my own with most of it being taken up my our son.

    Hi There. I have officially started a petition for changing the way a prenatal diagnosis is given to new and expecting parents. If you are interested in this issue, please stop by and sign my petition. We can all change this system and get the Prentally Diagnosed Condition Act Passed, introduced by Senator's Kennedy and Brownback. Thank you.
