Summer 2007

 Waterloo/St. Louis and New Orleans

Includes pictures of: family time, camping, French Quarter, swimming, fishing, Chuck E. Cheese, a parade, etc.

Parade in Waterloo, Illinois; my hometown.

New Orleans: In August, we flew into N.O. from England.  We visited for several weeks with Dave's family.  We stayed very busy: swimming, jet skiing, boating, Dave eating seafood, fishing, finding alligators, French Quarter - market, streetcar, street artists, Cafe Du Monde, St. Louis Cathedral, architecture, the Abita Springs (fountain of youth), Dave's High School football game, and paddle boating.

Waterloo: In August, we visited Waterloo, not knowing that come October, we were going to make it home for 6 months.  We did a lot of family oriented things here: Chuck E. Cheese with cousins, slumber party, dinner out with fam, family visits, parade, Dave and my brother, Rich camping and floating the Jacks Fork River; make over party, etc.  See more Waterloo pictures on the living in Waterloo link.
