Ready, Set, VACATION! I absolutly LOVE New Orleans. I get lots of junk food! I loved the snowballs from Hansen’s.
The Mississippi River was kind of nasty looking.
I loved wandering around downtown. We took a horse drawn carriage ride around the French Quarter.
We ended our downtown trip with a visit to Cafe’ Du Monde for beignets. Do you think I was willing to try new foods? YUP! I will try anything covered in sugar!
It got on my arm and I couldn’t let it go to waste.
Day two hanging out with Mommy while waiting for the Insectarium to open.
Petting a hissing cockroach.
I liked the underground bug tunnel.
We even got Mommy to eat some BUGS!
I loved the “chocolate Chirp Cookies”. The chocolate covered crickets were great as well.
So proud that we ate the bugs!
They even had a butterfly area. Some of the butterflies were as big as Daddy’s hand!
Next we hit the streetcars. There was a back up so we ended up with a car all to ourselves. We rode all the way down to City Park.
Mommy walked with us to StoryLand while Daddy rode the streetcar back to fetch the car.
It was kind of creepy but we had a fun time.
We hunted down some crawfish for dinner and then hit Cafe Du Monde for desert! YUMMY!
Day three we visited a plantation and went to play in the bayou.
It was raining in the bayou and the alligators were all over the place. They were even on the pathways! It was scary but Mommy held my hand so tight I thought my hand would fall off!
I didn’t want to walk under the umbrella.
Gator over my head int he water. Some of the gators were a good 8-10 feet long!
Back at the KOA campground and having fun in the drizzle on the little playground. The pool was too hot to swim in. We took a quick dip and then a cool shower.
Ready for bed after a long few days… where are we off to next… no one knows!
We got a crack in the windshield as we arrived in New Orleans.
Daddy found this tonight. I think we have a change in plans. We shall see.
