This was our latest trip just before Maddyson started school. We went to New Orleans and it was quite interesting. I can't say I loved it but it was a new experience I will not forget. We went down the famous Bourbon street and it was worse then the Vegas strip. The rest of down town had some really cool architecture and tons of history so that made up for the trash other places.
As you can tell everyone else loved it too!! The kids were a little hot at this point and they were ready to go back to the hotel and swim. Don't visit in the Summer unless you love humidity and lots of heat. They were happy in the shade!!
This is the mighty Mississippi behind us and while we were there they had a bit of an oil spill so it was kind of a busy river.
The Balloon clown was fun and the kids balloons lasted about a day of course. It was a better record then some of the other children around us so at least we got them that long
The beads were sold just about everywhere you went. They had a ton of different sizes and styles. Did we buy some for our kids??? NO. We know what happens once we get home and once we got to the hotel they didn't even remember they had asked for one. Kids are great!!
