Mowgli Joe has asked me for a while now to make a trip to Baton Rouge, so we drove for what seemed like an eternity to a 10 year old, to the somewhat dull riverside. Mowgli was beside himself with excitement. He got to lay down upon abandoned rail tracks, climb a brick wall see a ship and walk on a bridge over the Mississippi River. It's so fun to watch him enjoy himself so thoroughly. We'll be back just so that he can grin this big on a regular basis.
