Football and First Communion

Football and First Communion....because they go together!  We were in Baton Rouge this past weekend and attended my nephew, Luke's ( who shall be referred to as The Football Master from here on out) , First Communion.  We had a great visit in Baton Rouge.

I always envied couples whose parents lived in separate cities.  Why?  Because when you visit either one you are not torn as to which house you will stay or who you will eat lunch with or who you will eat dinner with or how much time you spend with each.  When we visit BR we are always torn between two families.  We were there this weekend specifically for the First Communion and to see our California family members.  But....this was Mother's Day weekend too!  Needless to say, we did a LOT of visiting!  Not complaining because it was fantastic to see so much family in one weekend but we have got to keep moving if we want to fit it all into one weekend!  Luckily our two sisters are very accommodating and manage to host everyone at their houses to cut down on the traveling.

The First Communion was lovely.  I just loved seeing all the kids in their white clothes all looking so full of anticipation and hope.  We could all learn something from them.  Wouldn't it be perfect if we had that same hope and excitement every time we received Communion?  We should....but speaking for myself here...we don't.  They were the perfect picture....just look for yourselves.
That is Luke/The Football Master in the front with the light blue jacket and white pants on between the two girls.



After the First Communion we all went to The Football Master's house for a crawfish boil!  YUM!  Check out this feast!

I LOVE Louisiana!





They slaved away in the heat to cook that feast!



Meanwhile, The Football Master, showed us his skills.   All he wanted to do was play catch, you know football season is only 3 1/2 months away, gotta practice!  The videos were shot with the camera sideways and since I am not a technical wizard, I can't figure out how to rotate it after downloading it so you will all have to turn your computers sideways to view the video.  Go ahead.... I'll wait.  Turn that computer on it's side..... and witness Luke, The Football Master in action!

The kid has a future as a receiver and his passing isn't too bad either!  Maybe it was all the crawfish and then again maybe it was the First Communion.  Great day!

Hope all the moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day.  We were very lucky to see both of our Mothers on Mother's Day and some other very special mothers in our family.  Have a great week everyone!

He was a magnet for that football. What a passion at such a youthful age. And what a passion at an age that knows passion - crawfish boil! Your picture was PERFECT! Wouldda been perfect sideways like the video, too! Glad you were blessed enough to visit BR on such a special weekend!
