New Orleans

Kevin had the opportunity to go to a convention in New Orleans at the end of October. I joined him mid-week without the kids. We had a wonderful time together. It was a really relaxing, laid-back vacation. I loved having my husband all to myself.
In front of St. Louis Cathedral

Couldn't resist getting a picture of the gorgeous exposed organ pipes
Waiting outside Preservation Hall

Enjoying a Sazerac in the Sazerac Bar (New Orleans's signature cocktail)
Garden District streetcar ride

We are foodies. We love really great food. This was one of our courses at Le Foret - also known as the best scallop either one of us has ever eaten. It was served on a pumpkin puree with a pecan apple chutney. I'm so sad it's gone. Amazing.

More eating - beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde

One more date night together before heading home

The girls loved their special New Orleans souvenirs!
