The Andouille Festival

All that Pumpkin Patch fun just wasn't enough to fill up our weekend, so on Sunday afternoon we headed out to the annual Andouille Festival here in LaPlace. Those of you who are not fortunate enough to live in St. John the Baptist Parish may not realize that LaPlace is actually the "Andouille Capital of the World." Be impressed.  Here are Stella and Daddy exiting her first carnival ride.  While on this ride, Stella said, "Daddy, we're in this alligator's belly!"
Next it was on to the teacups with Mommy.  Stella told me that this ride was, "just like Disneyworld!"  Jamie said she was sure the festival organizers would be happy to hear that comparison.  It made me think that our little family might be ready for a trip to Florida.  Hint, hint, Daddy...
One of Stella's favorite things to do is "drive," so she was thrilled with this ride...
Halfway through the ride she noticed that her passenger had a steering wheel, too.  I think Stella shot her this look to say, "What do you think you're doing?  You do realize I'm driving this car, don't you?"
Excited about riding the carousel...well, at least one of them was...
Cille loved the Andouille Festival...
She wins the good attitude award for waiting patiently while her sister had fun and not complaining that the only thing she got to ride was her stroller...

Next it was time for a high seas adventure, Viking style...
Daddy made sure there was film footage of Stella's maiden voyage...
Her instructions were to not put her hand in the water...
But the waves just proved irresistable...
Who knew sausage could be so fun?  Thanks, Andouille!  You are our favorite meat to celebrate!
