Be sure you go by Laura's blog and check out her posts, too! She has written about everyday of her trip here: meeting my family & friends, trying our foods, visiting plantation homes, visiting New Orleans, and more! I am going to do a few more posts on her trip here, and then go back and tell you about all the other things that happened this year that I have failed to blog about. (This is why getting back to blogging is so hard! I keep playing catch up! But i am determined, so. Don't you worry!)
On the Friday Laura was here, we went to New Orleans. It was a beautiful day! Why did I think New Orleans would be a little less busy on a weekday? I guess I thought all the vacationers went back home after Mardi Gras? I don't know, but I definitely felt like I was on vacation or something! In New Orleans we listened to street performers, ate poboys and beignets, and took A LOT of pictures. I actually brought my own camera that day. We had a great time!
Here are just a few of the gazillion pictures we took.
This is in Jackson Square. I thought they were pretty great!
Here is Laura's post on the street performers. She loved them, one band in particular... be sure to go check it out!
St. Louis Cathedral
Outside of Southern Candymakers where Laura tried pralines for the first time! (And where I
actually tried and liked them for the first time! I would have to agree with their sign!)
Trying on masks in one of the little shops!
Waiting for lunch at NOLA Poboys... so good!
Ready to try some beignets!!
