We have been to NOLA together before, but this time we planned a few different activities to try something new. We visited with family on Friday afternoon and then headed over to New Orleans, where there was a mix up with our hotel room. Due to an overbooking issue, we were gifted with a significant upgrade (I told A is was karma ;), clearly a sign about the weekend we would have. Here are some of our snapshots and memories from the last four days!
|Happy to be celebrating Memorial Day weekend with my military man :)|
|Starting our Haunted History Tour. You can tell one of us was more excited than the other...|
|Can I live in an apartment like this??|
|Oldest consecutive bar in the United States - serving since 1772. |
Apparently it has some ghosts too.
|And we found one!!! Just kidding #lovethisphotobomb|
The next morning, we walked down to Cafe Du Monde for the classic beignet and cafe au lait, which we enjoyed in Jackson Square.
After some shopping and walking, we met up with a friend for brunch at Stanley's, right in Jackson Square. I had scrambled eggs, wheat toast, and Cajun potatoes. A. had poached eggs with fried soft shell crab and oysters - only in Louisiana!
|What a view!|
On top of all the walking, we ran 10 miles on Saturday morning and did a major gym session this morning. I had to balance all that southern food! We continued to enjoy the city and I was sad to come back home this evening... what a perfect weekend!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to everyone who serves, we are so blessed.
