Meet the Gumbo Gang!

Meet The Gumbo Gang

My favorite things are playing soccer, learning about dinosaurs, and watching Tee Gumbo chase his tail!

Jon Jon

I just love using my imagination to have adventures!
I love when Grandma lets me help cook in the kitchen. When I grow up, I am going to be a ballerina and an Olympic champion.  


I like to wear my costumes and dance every chance I get!
My favorite sounds are jazz music and the laughter of Jon Jon and Evangeline as they play fun games with with Gumbo!

Grandma Praline

I sure do love to cook, dance, and play with the gang!
When I play catch with Jon Jon and Evangeline, I get to run all over the bayou fetching the ball. Then I love to get a bite to eat and take a nice long nap.

Tee Gumbo

I love naps, my bone, and chasing my tail!
