We just took a whirlwind trip to South Louisiana. 800+ miles in 2 days is a lot of ground for a little girl like you to cover. You were so good! I am so proud of the little girl you have become.
Aunt Sara made the trip with us. Riley, you think Aunt Sara is the best thing since suckers. You love her!
Our first stop was Prejean’s in Lafayette, Louisiana. My favorite thing about Prejean’s was the Crawfish Enchiladas.
We arrived in New Orleans around 10 pm Friday night. You went crazy when you saw your cousin Braxton.
The next morning we were out and about discovering New Orleans.
New Orleans is a beautiful city, rich with history.
Souvenir shopping was our favorite. There were so many little shops to peruse.
It’s almost Mardi Gras, so there were tons of beads for sale. You had to have this “Nemo” necklace as soon as you laid eyes on it.
Is it me or do I look like my Mom here?
Recently, your Daddy taught you to talk like a robot. It’s really cute. So, this guy was an eye catcher for you and Braxton: he had painted himself silver and had some little mouth device that he could blow in and sound like a robot. He was a huge hit!
Aunt Ma never takes a bad picture.
To Sara – Doesn’t this face sum up our inside joke? Hope you know what I’m talking about!
I guess you know by now we didn’t go to New Orleans just because. We went because Aunt Ma got married!
It was a sweet ceremony for an even sweeter couple.
I can’t wait to go back to New Orleans and really explore the city! Thanks for being such a sweet baby. I was the proudest Mama in NOLA!
