New Orleans Trip

Like I promised, here are some pictures of our recent trip to New Orleans.  My family is from New Orleans, but I have never taken the Mr. there to see my Southern roots.  We went to all the touristy places for him and ate our way through Bourbon Street.  We took a carriage tour of the French Quarter, visited the St. Louis Cathedral, took a day cruise on a steam boat, went on a swamp tour, and relaxed with family having some much need down time.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Well, back to work for me.  Happy Monday.



  1. Looks like a great trip! I would love to make it there one day. The buildings and homes are just so beautiful!

  2. How FUN!!! It looks like you had the best time! Are those house boats on a swamp -- with gators swimming nearby? I'm glad you all had a good time. You never know what you're going to find in New Orleans. I'll tell you a story about my first visit there sometime. Glad you are back safe and sound.

  3. Ha! That one house had a sign "the white house" cracked me up! I have always wanted to go to New Orleans - in the off season nowhere near Mardi Gras. What a fun time that must have been. Those images are great.
