We had a wonderful mid-week vacation trip to New Orleans to visit with friends, do some sightseeing, then stops at the zoo, aquarium and insectarium.
I hadn't been back to the zoo and aquarium since pre-Katrina, so fast forward 10 years and 2 more kids (wow how time flies!).
Really glad we arrived late in the evening, the sight of the city at night from the bridge was absolutely breathtaking.
Fenix the penguin was a hoot to watch at the aquarium!
And it would be NOLA without the clang, clang of the trolley cars and the smell of beignets.
Next stop the hand-dipped candy apple shop! Then DC and NYC for another quick adventure before turning 40... and tons of photos to go through!
