Today was my amazing husband's birthday. He is officially well into his thirties. We took a day trip to the Tabasco plant on Avery Island. It was really great! The scenery was beautiful and the plant was pretty cool. It was a perfect day trip, only about 2 hours away, but on the way back traffic on I-10 was at a stand still and we almost never got home. We were one of the few people that thought visiting the plant would be a grand idea, which is funny because this kind of think always happens to us. We have been talking about going for a while and I am so glad we did it. The day was perfect. It is amazing what they can do with Tabasco. They produce about 40,000 bottles of the stuff a day. Each pepper is hand picked, smashed up, and aged for three years before it is actually turned into the sauce. This is also the only place it is made. I totally recommend the tour to anyone that is close by. When we got home we played at the park and ate some Mexican, always a good birthday choice. I was out of candles so we opted for a tea light to put on top of the cupcake. Hey, it worked. Happy Birthday to the best Daddy and husband around!
Welcome! Us and one other car decided to take a tour today. More people eventually arrived.
