Day 86 - Again No Video, but There are PHOTOS!

Today was the last day of the Oak Alley Plantation Spring Arts & Crafts show and it did not goes as well as they said it would, but we did make out okay. I have some photos of the faces we did this weekend as promised below!

Now the reason I did not make a video is that I was going to stop by Office Depot and buy a new camcorder that records 1080p HD, but they were already closed and we were starving. I am just too tired to talk into a camera tonight and will surprise you with a great video tomorrow. It is going to consist of the review for the Economy Inn that we are staying at and I wanted it to be better quality than the past videos.

Oh, one other thing and I will be making or mentioning in a video about this, but my friend has entered a contest and she needs you help, please read the following:
