Rob’s sister, Shawna, from Nevada was in Baton Rouge recently and since we haven’t seen her in 14 years, we knew we had to go for a visit.
Our new favorite place to stop on the way to Baton Rouge is The Boiling Pot. Drew and I got the Shrimp & Grits. I had Gumbo and Broccoli Cheese rice as my sides. Rob and Alex got the Shrimp Po’Boys.
Anyway, so when we go to Baton Rouge, we usually stay with Rob’s cousin’s house; the Lindsey’s. Their 2nd oldest son, Cameron, is about the same age as Alex so they are pretty much inseparable the whole time. We had the entire Stanford bunch minus Rob’s other sister on that side, who couldn’t make it.
We were there for an extended weekend, but the time flew by because we were having so much fun. Here’s some stuff we did…
Cousins played basketball together
Shawna’s kids had never been to New Orleans so we went for the day and hit all the highlights.
Ate amazing food at 801 Royal. Highly recommend the Seafood Nachos and Debris Fries. Do not recommend the Crawfish Etoufee.
Took a pic of the cousins together in front of the Andrew Jackson statue
Cooked Jambalaya over the open flame; a Stanford tradition.
Drew organized a cousin soccer tournament
Celebrated Randy’s 70th, Shawna’s 48th, and Rob’s 43rd
Did some Stanford family photos of everyone.
We always enjoy our time hanging out with all the Lindseys and Stanfords. I’m so happy that Shawna and her boys got to come.
