A Partial McFs’ Visit and Alcee’s Inside Out Birthday Party

Jenn and Margaret McF arrived in NOLA last Saturday morning for a two-night stay. Margaret had appointments scheduled at Tulane on Monday; she’s applying there for admission next fall. (We won’t talk about how exciting it would be to have her here for four years. Because it would be. Super exciting. But she’s also looking at two other schools, so I’m not getting my hopes up.)

Nola, the boys, and I picked them up at the airport and brought them back to my house. Riley was SO excited to see them; he could barely contain himself. We played here for a little while and then went to get lunch at Parkway. Lizzie, UJ, QP, and James met us there.




The four of us parted ways with the rest of the group after lunch and headed to Storyland for Alcee’s birthday party. Diana did such a great job with the theme of Inside Out, especially considering merchandising for it is surprisingly non-existent. Everything was so cute. Diana’s mom even made Alcee her own Inside Out skirt to wear!




The kids had a great time running around Storyland and riding some of the rides in Carousel Gardens.

Happy happy birthday, Alcee! We’re glad we could be there to celebrate with you.



Once the party was over, we went home to relax for a bit before heading off to our next event. Nola and Nopsi hosted everyone at their house for the LSU game that night. LSU beat Western Kentucky, but the only picture I got all night was of Doug reading to Rory. Cute.


The next morning Kenny made a pannacake breakfast. Jenn and Margaret were thrilled. Everything was so good.


Then we had everyone over to our house for the Saints game. It was a close one, but we beat the Colts in the end. And alas, this is the only picture I have. But it’s a good one.


Sunday night was an expanded version of our normal dinner at Nola and Nopsi’s house. The kids introduced Jenn and Margaret to their weekly dance parties and everyone had a great time.



Jenn took Margaret to her meetings at Tulane on a rain-soaked Monday, and we saw them back at Nola and Nopsi’s that afternoon before they flew home. The Tulane visit went well, so we shall see what happens.


Such a busy, fun-filled weekend. We always love seeing the McFs, even it was only half of them.

Have a wonderful {Halloween} weekend, everyone! The weather here is unfortunately supposed to be pretty nasty tomorrow, but luckily we have the Boo Bash tonight at Riley’s school. Stay safe, y’all!
