Our room didn't face the river, but even from way up high on the 29th floor it was easy to spot the arrival of Mimi and Poppy in their big ole yellow banana truck.
They stayed with us and watched Joseph for a day while we were at lectures, and then (*gasp*) they took him to Houma for the night. Yes, for the 1st time in 5 years and 3 months I let Joseph out of my sight for a night. I can finally check that one off the New Year's resolution list. Any apprehension I had was quickly relieved just knowing we'd get to sleep in past sunrise!
