Back to the point.. we made a last minute decision to join his parents and brother to go to Louisiana. I was beyond excited because I had never been to the deep south and I had never met any of Cam's extended family. We basically went from the tip-top of the state to the most southern part that you can get to so I got a condensed state tour.
We flew into New Orleans and took a 5 hour drive up to Bossier City, LA which is where Cam's family lives. I loved going to the places that his parents had grown up going to and seeing the city through their eyes.
1. Natchitoches is where Steel Magnolias "Drink ya juice Shelby!"was filmed
2. It was also the original capitol of Louisiana
3. If you look up there^^ at that amazing house, that is where Cam's grandpa was born and the surrounding streets are named after his ancestors.
4. It is the most charming place in the world..
..alright that last one is not an exact fact but I dare say that it was my favorite part of our tour.
Also, if you are ever in Natchitoches and you don't get a meat pie at Lasyone's, you are missing out!
^Louisiana is also home of the Red Neck Rest Area.
See that blue dot in the middle of the Ocean ^^? That's where spent the weekend with Cam's brother's family at their camp house in Grand Isle... which I think I'll save for a louisiana part two so that you don't get pictured out!
until next time...
