New Orleans

3 years ago, in June of 2005, Aaron and I went to New Orleans. We rode with our friends Martin and Kelly. Kelly's family lives there and they were having a wedding shower for them. Aaron had free hotel nights, so we went. It was the first time since having kids that we went somewhere longer than 1 day. We drove all night and spent all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday before coming home Monday.

Let me tell you, that city was Amazing! It was so full of history and sights and oh, the food. It was so Yummy. That was 2 months before hurricane Katrina. I am so glad that we went before that happened. We walked in the French Quarter, rode the trolley, went to the cemetery, took a tour of the bayou, sat at Gatemouth Brown's table in the House of Blues restaurant. Years from now, when it is rebuilt, I would love to go back with my family. There is so much to see and do and taste.

I am praying that Gustav is not as bad as they are predicting. The people there really need a brake.
