Happy Anniversary!!!

Today was Sheryl and I's 6 year together and the anniversary of our first date. Since we are here at Barksdale were I spent 6 years, we headed out so I could show her the sights.

My how things have changed after 15 years, the casinos were just going in and Shreveport was just beginning to reap the benefits of them. Now the area has really grown, even on the Bossier city side, we even found the new outdoor shopping area next to the new Bass Pro Shop, it's a great thing that has happened to the area.

After spending the day sight seeing, it was time for our anniversary dinner. Being in Louisiana, we decided on Cajun food and I remember this place "Ralph and Kacoo's" an upscale Cajun restaurant. It is still there so we figured it had to be good to last all these years. Well all I can say is dinner was great!!!

So instead of showing you the food, which pics never do justice, I thought I'd take a different approach and show you just how good the food was, yup cleaned those plates!!! Sheryl had the Shrimp St Charles (Deep fried shrimp stuffed with crab dressing and topped w/hollandise sauce) man it was good. I had the Crawfish Special (fried crawfish and crawfish etouffee over rice). Both dishes were excellent definitely check this place out for great Cajun food!!!

We had a great anniversary here at Barksdale, it was nice to beable to show Sheryl around one of my old haunts. The next couple of day will be more sight seeing and getting ready to head out on Tuesday. We'll have more from Barksdale before we leave, so stay tuned and we'll see you then.
