Nawlins Photo Dump

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Whew! Long week...definitely looking forward to Friday. I guess that's what a long weekend usually does--makes it a little tough to get into the work groove. But here we are, and in honor of our sweet Lily's 16th week of life today, I've put together a little (okay, really big) collection of photos recounting our trip to New Orleans.

What fun! We were only there for a few days (Saturday afternoon through Monday morning), but we managed to cram in window-shopping in the French Quarter, a walking vampire tour, a stop at St. Louis Cemetery #1, a stroll through Jackson Square, and lots (and lots!) of yummy food and drink.

probably the world's strongest bloody mary

on the streetcar. i know it's not nice, but a lady just almost totally wiped out at the front of the car. she didn't though, and everyone here is trying to contain their laughter.

more of the french quarter, including jackson square and st. louis cathedral

we hired a (fantastic) sitter during the evenings so carl & i could enjoy new orleans' nightlife together grown-up style. two of my old college roommates, aubrey and maggie, are from new orleans recommended a slew of places, including the very pretty column hotel and the very dive-y saint bar.

the photo above is of the three-piece band playing at the saint. we listened to them while munching on some free chili dogs.

carl took hudson on several walks at this park, which was just a few minutes away from our hotel.


Thank you for visiting! I love receiving comments and try my very best to respond to each of them.
