They fought so you can shoot lasers

Looking through some activities to do in the U.S. this summer and I found a WW2 Destroyer that has tours. Or, since people don’t think a giant war destroying battle ship is enough for children – there’s laser tag!

I’m pretty sure this is wrong. Or is it just me?

Tiger Truck Stop

I believe I’ve written about the Tiger Truck Stop before.  It’s quite a depressing place located about 2 hours east on I-10 in Louisiana.  My husband and I stopped there over 10 years ago.  Why did we stop?  Well, when you see a sign that says, “Fill up your gas tank next to live tigers”, you tend to check it out.

It was so hot and the tigers were so miserable that we didn’t get our gas there.  I’m not really sure how this place is allowed, except…..  it’s Louisiana.

Anyway, this year when we stopped at the Louisiana Welcome Center, we actually found a brochure about this attraction.  I felt I had to share it here:

Welcome to Louisiana

Stopping at the Lousiana welcome center, we came across this sign.  It’s the first time our kids didn’t want to go swimming.
