My first trip to New Orleans was last year, Spring Break, with my sister-in-law, Aubrey. Ever since then, I've wanted to go back, and to show Casey this amazing city. My wonderful mom-in-law, Cindy and her fantastic friend, Brenda, took care of our kiddos while Casey and I got some awesome quality time together. And ate our way through the city. It was a great little vacation.
We flew Spirit, something Casey wanted to try after listening to a Planet Money podcast about it. It was cheap and easy.
Initially, Casey was a little underwhelmed about NOLA, but he was excited about the 5th Circuit Court. Unfortunately, it wasn't in session...but just seeing it got three "Wow!"s from Casey which was really funny. #lawnerd
It was a little warm, but I loved the architecture and atmosphere, and of course, the history. Few places I've visited seem to have so many stories to tell.
After the tour, we walked down Magazine street and had some very fresh fried oyster and shrimp po-boys. Yum.
But, my favorite meal of the trip was dinner was at Luke's.
By then, we were ready to come home to our cuties.
