New Orleans

This slide show is from our fateful trip to New Orleans in July. It was one week before I was supposed to leave for Africa and I still had not recieved my passport.(that I had applied for in March!) So we loaded up and drove to our "Nearest State Department" to get one that day. I had never been to N.O. and have been told you either love it or hate it. Well I loved it. Of course I didn't love all of it. But its such a different enviroment. The kids really liked it to. It was a super quick trip...we were only gone for 24 hours total. But seeing how that was the first time we have been away together as a family in3 years, we loved all 24 hours! Even the part when our Air C0ndition broke in the van in July in the deep south, and the part when we finally get to our hotel all hot and sweaty from no air in the car, to our air not working in our room. But other than that...we loved it. And if you've never tried Beignets...come on over, I bought a box of the mix and I'll whip some up for you!

Hey!! How did I not know you had a blog? This is so great!! Yay
Those pictures are so great. I had no idea your kids had dark hair. Has it been that long? Well, I am so glad to see you on here.

Yes, I dye their hair. Just kidding! Lana still has some blond, but they both darkened up. I guess this is why we have blogs, to catch up on things such as hair color!

Missy, the house next door to me is for rent!!!

If you lived near me, I would bring the coffee, and you could make the goodies!

The Swiss Cake Roll desert was a hit!

Neat blog!!!!!!!!! You've found your element!
