What a week it has been for Ali Landry and her two kids – Estela, 5, and Marcelo, 13 months – with husband Alejandro Monteverd. The family has been visiting the model’s folks in her hometown in southern Louisiana also known as Cajun Country.
“I am so enjoying teaching Estela about her Louisiana Heritage and Cajun roots :)” the mom-of-two shared via Instagram on Wednesday (November 14).
The mother-daughter duo also spent some time picking up some sugar cane for the 5-year old to sample.
Taking advantage of the scenery and culture, the former Miss USA didn’t miss a chance to make the trip an educational opportunity for her young son. She taught him all about the Atchafalaya Basin and the toddler seemed to be soaking it all in.
And learning about the south isn’t all the tot has picked up.
“Marcelo has started to walk!!!!!!!! It is so cute! He is so proud of himself!!!!” the 39-year old mama tweeted.
