New Orleans Recap

Well my blog friends, I have to tell you: thank you so much for the blog comments of ideas on what to do and where to go for our trip for New Orleans. I didn't even buy a guide book as planned! Seriously! I received so many comments with helpful hints, suggestions, and recommendations, we were thrilled to just go off of friendly advice - and we ended up with a fun-filled, action packed trip.

Of course New Orleans is all about the food, and I tried to sample as much "N'Awlins" flavors as possible; po boys, gumbo, jambalaya, red beans and rice, king cake, praline candy, beignets...the list goes on. Needless to say we were stuffed all weekend!

Here's a photo recap of our adventure in New Orleans.
