Visitors

Been away the last week as my fabulous little sister and her boyfriend have been visiting.  Great times were had, sadly they had to end today, and my house is a wee bit quiet as I sit here.  Back to the grind, and lists, and sewing.

But first, a glimpse at a couple of our adventures!  It’s always fun to have visitors–it gives you an excuse to play tourist in your own state!

Among the many things we did, our favorites were:

Kliebert’s Turtle and Alligator Farm (“Swamp People” fans may recognize this spot):  http://www.kliebertgatortours.com/Home.html

This tour was AMAZING and so fun!  Great place–and only an hour drive from my house.  Our guide was informative and funny, the tour was fabulous, and we had a blast.  If you find yourself in southern Louisiana, I HIGHLY recommend this tour–for only $12, it was a steal.  Everyone on the tour had a blast–kids and adults alike.

I’ve wanted to hit this place up for years, but never did.  It’s crazy–no, really–it’s CRAZY.  I mean, I love it, but it’s insane.  There’s a little bit of everything here.  I fell madly in love with all the vintage paint by number paintings, but sadly none were for sale.  Trust me–I would have come home with a boat load if they had been.  DEFINITELY worth the $3 to tour.  If you like “Hoarders”, thrift store shopping & folk art, this is THE place.
