We loved the French Quarter! We also loved Audubon Park, the Garden District, making new friends at church, seeing the Mississippi (and learning more about its importance), trying gumbo and jambalaya, driving down Magazine Street. And, I finally learned the difference between a Cajun and a Creole! (hint: the definition of a creole is not definitive...) I would love to go back to New Orleans.

|The kids napped in the car and we enjoyed some sweet sunshine and green grass at Audubon Park.
|A little alone time with hot cocoa and postcard writing one morning...bliss.
|There's a claw in my gumbo!
|Cooling off in Jackson Square.
|He fell asleep like this during quiet time...poor tired boy!
