Alright, so I know no-one actually calls it Red Stick, but I needed a title! We decided to head over to Baton Rouge for Easter week-end. I’m so glad our kids are good travelers, because 500 miles in a week-end could be daunting for some families!
We had a great visit with Doug’s grandparents and his brother Scott (along with his adorable family). We ate at the Country Club, went to the Farmer’s Market, the state capitol, and a little restaurant so Doug could satisfy his sausage po’ boy craving! There was also Easter egg dyeing, the hunt and a trip to the pool. I don’t know that we could have fit more into the time we had in Baton Rouge.
We also proved an urban legend along the way. In case you’re wondering, there is no actual mile marker for mile 666 on I-10. There is a marker that is yellow and black, but there are no numbers. I don’t know how many states even have a mile 666, but now you know, the highway department is a little superstitious!
