Recently we loaded up our car and drove to New Orleans with Gammy & Peepaw to visit family there. Our car was packed full. The boys did well in the car and watched lots of movies with their wireless headphones.
This year we stayed on Bourbon Street at the historic Royal Sonesta.
Enjoying some cookies once we made it to New Orleans. The boys got to ride in a taxi with no car seats, which was quite the adventure for them. Then we ate dinner at Drago's and the boys tried charbroiled oysters. Adam really liked them.
Aunt Amy & Uncle Steve flew in to join us late that night. The next morning we went to Cafe DuMonde for breakfast. The boys had been requesting beignets after watching the Princess & the Frog so they were very excited to finally try them.
We got some jester hats in the French Market
Visited St Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square
Playing in a small pumpkin patch
We went to Mr. B's for lunch
Our hotel had some really pretty fountains and arrangements
Adam discovered some fish!
In the afternoon we went to Uncle Lawrence, Aunt Cheryl and Grandma's house to visit.
The boys loved feeding the fish in their pond!
They loved running around in the big yard
They received some awesome new toys!
Aunt Amy & Cousin Lissy get in on the fun
