Fun in NOLA



My sister and her husband came over for a quick visit this weekend. The weather was GORGEOUS so we went into NOLA to walk around and just hang out.
We had plans to go to the WWII museum but never made it there.

We got lucky and ran into a wedding party as they danced down the street on their way to the reception....


While waiting for lunch at the Gumbo Shop, we walked through bubbles someone had blowing from a machine on their balcony.


While in Jax Square, I did my January toy drop....a toadstool pencil topper. Click on the link of you want the pattern.





We saw all the 'metal men' that were out. There was one other guy but he wasn't ready for a photo and it was getting late so we moved on.


We ate beignets with hot cocoa at Cafe Du Monde (don't we ALWAYS?)


someone got messy!


Before leaving, we stopped and listened to Tanya and Dorise.....oh my gosh, these girls are talented!


They had their CDs for sale so I bought one.....now I wish I'd bought all four! My camera's batteries died as I was trying to zoom in to take this photo...oh well.

It was getting really cold so we went out to eat and then went on home.
It was such a great day....I was sad to see it end.

Definitely looks like a great day. My kids love gumbo! But I don't make it anymore since I don't eat meat. Your toadstool toppers are so cute. Have a great week. Tammy
