Remember when we went to New Orleans a few weeks ago? Well we made it back already! With our friends visiting, we decided to go to French Quarter fest and eat delicious food. NOLA was a great place to do so! The fest was packed, the music was entertaining, there was tons of food to sample, and of course I loved the people watching.
The boys got an order of krispy kreme bread pudding and fell in love. It was very good (B loved it because it did not have raisins... there was no room for raisins with all the doughnutty goodness... it was actually his first time trying bread pudding). We also went into St. Louis Cathedral, saw some beautiful buildings, and lots of cute puppies! How cute are the dogs with the sunnies?
I happened to stumble upon The Quarter Stitch. What a beautiful store! I could have bought all the yarn in the store. I have stopped knitting since the move because it is too hot to wear any of my creations so I could not rationalize buying any new yarn... I still have a huge stock of yarn I moved with me!
Finally, for dinner we stopped at Gordon Biersch at Harrah's Casino for dinner. The outdoor patio has TVs for the boys to watch hockey and ample opportunity for me to take photos of myself and my surroundings (minus the creeper I had to crop out of multiple photos). I had an amazing blue cheese wedge salad... a little stinky cheese goes a long way with this girl!
I know I said this last time... but NOLA is such a fun city to visit, especially since we are only an hour away! We will be back for more adventures.
