Reunion Time

Well Heather and the Babies are in St. Augustine Florida with MaMom visiting Granny and Papa. I will join up with them on Saturday afternoon for the annual Bowe / Wages reunion. Uncle Kyle, Uncle Collin and I will take that long 10 hour drive over there all day saturday. I hope that it is uneventful, since I have had my far share this week. Heather drove the same 10 -12 hours with the babies on wednesday with mamom to help out. Can you imagine 12 hours in a car with 2 two year olds. I made that ride with Heather home last year when the babies were one, and I thought I was going to go crazy. Heather is sure stronger than I will ever be.
So this past weekend we went to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi for a family reunion for my dads side of the family. It was great, and I got to cook a 5 gal pot worth of Jambalaya for everyone. On Sunday I was going to cook 15 lbs of catfish, and burned my hand and foot with hot grease after the first batch came out. I was out of commission, and my dad finished it off for me. Pops is a much better fish fryer than me anyway. The babies loved the beach and all the attention they got form family that has only read about them on this blog for two years. David is fearless when it comes to the water. He runs straight into it and throws himself down and giggles. It is cute for a second, then a wave comes in and smacks him in the face. Don't get me wrong he is still laughing, we are just paraniod with him swallowing too much water. Mary Louise follows suit shortly after since it looks as if david is having fun. They are just to much fun to watch. They are growing so fast know (mentally). They are trying to communicate all the time. Mary Louise is great at putting words together, just hard to unsdestand her. You can ask her to repeat it, and she looks at you so matter of fact and repeats it. Too cute. she even rolls her eyes when you don't understand her.
So my week began with getting burned frying fish, and on tuesday my company truck overheated, water pump went out, and caused a cylinder in the engine to quit working. The mechanic wants $4500 to fix it, and I am waiting on my company to make a decision on what they want to do. This was a loaner truck while the one I ordered in March is waiting to be delivered to Houston. I just hope I can finish out this week without anymore issues, get to florida to see my Beautiful wife, and awesome children, and of course the rest of the family.

Heather will update soon
