When water rises, it spills into our swamps.
We love it!
Born and raised in Cajun country is a blessing in my eyes.
I know you've seen the "swamp people" shows and laugh, I'm sure.
We are so much more than funny accents and gators.
Our normal backyard turns into a fun oasis minus the snakes.
You can see here in the picture above, our house is built up on a dirt hill.
We lost count how many loads needed to be brought in before the building could begin.
Flooding was a problem in the past but is no longer.
The water comes up just close enough for us to enjoy without fear.
I'm in the orange.
My family was waiting patiently with camera in hand wanting me to flip.
I did not ;)
They are sweet like that LOL.
I can't tell you how peaceful it is to just hop in a boat alone.
The stillness is priceless...
Your kids join you!
Then they get stuck..on purpose.
They make waves and insist you video them.
But then they redeem themselves and cook dinner.
I would not trade a day.
