It's been so crazy around here; I need another vacation. But that's just not gonna happen, so I'm taking a FAKE-cation by examining some pics I took on our July trip.
Let's visit N'awlins... okay - so I'm a Texan and the honest-to-God truth is that even in my head I emphasize the "New" in New Orleans.
Here we go...
|We entered the city - following a taxi - he knew where he was going. We just had to keep our eyes peeled for the long line of residents at the Crown Astoria Hotel, our home for the night.|
|Yeah, dude knew where he was going.|
|Even the street lights have personality all their own.|
|Just looking out of the hotel window was a sight.|
|Even the sides of buildings were obvious rental space for ads.|
|Kitschy little front door.|
|Anything that says "French Market" is cool.|
|French Quarter water view.|
|Not Disney - anyone know the what the scoop is on this building?|
|Let's just be honest... this is pretty much the reason we stopped here in the first place, right?|
|Early morning grump... bring on the beignets and HURRY!|
|Some of us are just more patient than others.|
|I can't say I know what this expression is. It seems to be a phase. I think I'll call it 'Hunter's Opinion Face.' He seems to wear it when he's got an opinion.|
|See, child? They DO bring food. You just gotta be nice and wait a whole ten seconds for it.|
|Can I just say - we're talking MASSIVE amounts of powdered sugar. MASSIVE. And they dropped their fried dough to dip fingertips in the white stuff.|
|Seriously. I kid you not!|

These are just a few of the pics we took in New Orleans this summer. I don't wanna be the neighbor that invites you over for dinner and fails to mention the slide show they're gonna slam you with.
Slide show over.
