New Orleans!

This post is about 2 weeks overdue but the task of picking just a few pictures seemed so daunting. And then I remembered - hey, this is my blog - I can do what I want! So I just picked LOTS of pictures! :) Beware, picture overload!

"It has been said that a Scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen Edinburgh; and I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States until he as seen Mardi-Gras in New Orleans."  -- Mark Twain 1859

ok so we didn't exactly go during Mardi Gras but it was wonderful nonetheless!

My best friend Krystyn lives in New Orleans and since both Tarzan and I had never been we decided to make a quick trip out of it! :) I'm so glad we did, we had a blast!

It was an action packed two days ...

We went to this beautiful park near the Audubon Zoo right on the Mississippi River!

The weather was wonderful and Monkey had a blast -

He played with Mommy & Daddy ...


He played with Krystyn ...  


and he crawled all around eating Grass! :)


Then we stopped at this hole in the wall place for a Snow Ball!

My friends - if you find yourselves in New Orleans, you MUST try a Snow Ball.
It's like a snow cone - but 100 times better!
It's creamy and sweet and oh so yummy!

We took a late night stroll down the infamous Bourbon Street!


Monkey man had a blast "people-watching"!


and so did Tarzan!

That fancy glow-in-the-dark drink he has is a Grenade!
It's one of those "you have to try on Bourbon Street" drinks and it will knock your socks off! :)

The next day we strolled through Jackson Square!


Admired all the talented steet artists
(& avoided the creepy Fortune Tellers!)


and drooled over Hotdog vendors!


New Orleans is seriously so beautiful! :)



Then we stopped by the World Famous Cafe Du Monde


for some of their DELICIOUS Beignets!



Heaven.on.Earth.I.tell.you.

they are worth every bit of the 4000+ calories! :)

Monkey man LOVED all the live jazz music!


We strolled through the French Market!
I just LOVE Farmer's Markets!


had some "dressed Shrimp Po Boys" for Lunch at Johnny's!


and walked, walked & walked some more!
I LOVE all those Balconies & Ferns!


and by the end - Monkey was so exhausted he fell asleep in Tarzan's arms on the walk back to the car!


Thanks Krystyn for showing us such a great time!!!


We can't wait to come visit New Orleans again!!!
