New Orleans Here We Come!

Ted and I were blessed to be able to get away for our Anniversary this year, without kids . . . YEA! (A huge thanks to the Matheny's for graciously watching our children. We love you all!!)
We decided to go to New Orleans. Ted has been there several times and fell in "love" with the great food and the ambiance of the French Quarter. He really wanted to share it all with me, so off we went. We left the cold weather of Paducah behind and arrived there to beautiful weather. We ate and ate and ate! We walked and walked and walked! The best part of our vacation was the frequent trips to Cafe DuMonde for Cafe Au Lait, hot Beignets, and people watching. We walked the entire French Quarter and took in all the tourist sites. We ate appetizers at one restaurant, the main meal at another, and dessert at yet another. We listened to great street performers, got a glimpse of Chef Paul Prudhomme, strolled through the French Market, and occasionally got a glimpse of some interesting people. One such person was a man that had hot neon pink hair, beard, and eyebrows. I didn't take a picture of him so I'll let your imaginations take care of that!
Overall we had a great time and would love to go back again...for the beignet's and coffee of course! Well, also for the time alone and the romance... ;)
