New Orleans...

 My family along with Kellee's family spent some time in New Orleans together. Everything we did revolved around eating. We laughed, sweated, and walked more than I could of imagined prior. It's been over 90 everyday and very humid, but that's not a complaint. 


 Most of the housing in the French Quarter dates from 1790-1890. The colored shutters were my favorite along with the cast iron balcony. 

Happy belated Memorial Day


So neat how Christ reflects on to the cathedral with Bourbon street just one street over. Prior to Katrina there were Oak Trees throughout the courtyard area so the light didn't reflect off.  Although all the trees fell, the statue was unharmed except a couple fingers plucked off.



Could you imagine going to a school that looked like this?
Sacred Heart, all girls catholic prep school


iconic Jackson Square

Crawfish season


This guy's great-grandfather started this candy joint. Ran into him on St. Charles St.


Family favorite...
 Menu matched her necklace and her personality--merry and bright!

My good friend Paul from high school met us for dinner. He is swamped with med school studies. 



The look of New Orleans


 How about those hanging baskets and potted flowers?

   
One night the lobby flowers look like this, and the next night they looked like the other.
