Steel Magnolias are Nearby

I mentioned that family was visiting, husband's sister and brother-in-law from Topeka, Kansas.

They really seemed to enjoy the food, and the weather, here in Central Louisiana.

The three of them took a trip up the highway to Natchitoches, Louisiana. That's pronounced "NACK-i-tish" - not like it's spelled. (I, alas, couldn't go, I was ever faithful at the day job .... next time, for sure! )

I didn't know that my sister-in-law's favorite movie is "Steel Magnolias" and I also didn't know that it was filmed in Natchitoches. I guess I need to watch it again, to keep an eye out for familiar landscapes.

But she immediately recognized the house from the movie, and the holiday decorations on the riverwalk.

So they had to get some photos of the house and the sign. Mementos of the trip, don't you know.

And they had some good seafood, apparently the oysters were a big hit.

Here's a photo of my hubby and his sister, in Natchitoches, Louisiana. I'm happy they had a chance to visit, and they could experience the people, culture, music and food of our new home.

I think they had a good time, and they're planning another trip down. 
Woo-Hoo! More gumbo, ya-ya ...

I loved Steel Magnolias as well but didn't really know anything about where it was filmed. I need to watch it again as well. It would be hard to not pick up your hubby and his sis as siblings. So nice that your family could come down to visit you in your new home.
