Craziest Weekend Ever!

Wow! What a crazy weekend! Last Wed. Richard's grandmother passed away. She was 86 years old and died on her 65th anniversary to Frank, who is 90. They are an amazing couple. They have always been someone that Richard and I look up to a great deal. They played a huge role in Richard's life as he grew up. It was sad to watch her go, but she was suffering, and watching that was much worse. We hope Frank will be able to adjust to her not being here, but I don't even know how you would begin to do that after 65 years together. Her funeral was Friday at 3:00 in Jena, LA (about 2 1/2 hours away). This is important because we also had my cousin's wedding Friday night at 7:30. We have been planning for this wedding for weeks now, and really needed to and wanted to be there. So, we actually changed clothes in the funeral home and left for the wedding. Of course, we couldn't stay as long as we wanted because two of the boys had 8:00 (yes, am) games Sat. This was followed by a 1:00 game, which was followed by a 4:00 crawfish boil to celebrate Richard's dad's birthday (of course, at my house). Sunday, we had the end of a baseball tournament with games at 9:45 and 12:00. By the time we got home, we were exhausted. The picture is of Kai. He's a cajun in training. You'd never guess that he's a transplant from North Dakota!
