The Big Easy

Laissez les bons temps rouler. Or as the Cajuns say,"Let the good times roll." :) We'll be talking about yesterday and today. So yesterday we got an early start for a LONG day walking around New Orleans. The first thing we did was catch a trolley. We went through a gorgeous neighborhood. And guess what? We saw the lds church! It was a billion times less scary than say...Bourbon street. So we rode back to where we started, then we went to the Riverwalk where we caught another trolley to Jackson Square. Our next stop was Cafe Du Monde to have the world famous beignets!!! They were SOOOOOOOOOOOO good.=D There were lots of performers,(or as I call them-poorformers)because they come up to you and start juggling, then you pretty much have to pay them. So dad counseled us not to make eye contact. :o After we had our beignets, we went across the street to get Popsicles for me and Logan. The vendor warned us to wait a few minutes to eat them because they were SUPER cold. Well, apparently I didn't wait long enough, because I started to eat it...and I got stuck until it melted! We took a ride in a horse and buggy! That was really fun. Then we walked to the French Market. You could pretty much find everything there. Jewelery, Mardi Gras beads, sunglasses, and even phone chargers. After spending a long time there, we finally ate at Margaritaville. Then we walked,and walked...and walked through the French Quarter on our way back to the hotel. Our feet were aching! We left at 9 this morning for San Antonio. That's an 8 hour ride. We would've gotten there, but dad was really tired of driving as you can imagine. So now we're in a tiny little town--Sealy, Texas.
