Here are a few of the pictures from our trip to New Orleans.. ok, maybe more than a few - but I am not even done yet! Hopefully will be back in a few days - tonight, I sleep!
P.S. - yes I dress the boys in high visibility orange and red on purpose!
Ppie (Thomas' nickname!) and Abey trying out the bed in the girls room first thing. We got a lovely suite with 2 bedrooms and a pull out sofa in the living room. It was so much room - almost like an apartment!
Resting and reading
Abigail - really resting...
I know this is going to seem a bit backwards but it is just how the pictures loaded and I am not taking the time to change them up tonight. This was the last thing we did in New Orleans but I think it was the highlight. We took a lunch cruise down the Mississippi on the NATCHEZ and everyone had a blast!
and our lunch we really nice - fried fish, red beans and rice, okra - all the trimmings and dessert to boot!
Jay Bird - ignore his face please.. he was having issues this week
Daddy wanted this picture of the ALICE MORAN

The boys really liked this chair

Feeding the sting rays
Card liked this because we happened to be reading a book about a Navy Submarine and they suited up in these kind of suits to dive...
Waiting on the ferry
At the Insectaraium
watching the cooking show.
the thing that really grossed me out about this was that the guy looked so much like the guy from the movie "Fly" - I kept having flashbacks - uck!
Card was first in line to try out some bugs!
Jack after a nice big bite of BUG
They all loved the crickets and came back for seconds
Bug parts allowed in your food!

These were so pretty - I took way to many pictures to even post but here are a few
