Vacation…Part One

A little over a week ago, Ryan and I took a vacation to New Orleans with some family to celebrate my cousin's wedding! We flew out on Friday, the 22nd and stayed there until Wednesday, the 27th! I'm going to give you the recap in a few posts!

Part One: Getting There, Bourbon Street, and the French Quarter

1. Leavin' on a jet plane…our bright and early flight to New Orleans.
2. Once we got there and got checked into the hotel, we spent some time playing a few games with our cousins at my aunt's house. My aunt lives in Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans.
3. Friday night, the rest of my extended family had arrived and we all had a big family dinner with some card games too!
4. Later Friday night, it was time to go out on the town to Bourbon Street!! We hit up a few bars, did some dancing, had some drinkss, and had a great time!
5. Here I am with my cousin's fiancé, can't wait for her to be an official part of the family!!
6. Saturday, we spent the day doing touristy stuff downtown. Here is a picture of the cathedral.
7. Walking down the Riverwalk.
8. Jackson Square in the French Quarter.
9. And you can't go to New Orleans without having a delicious beignet!

Have any of you been to New Orleans? What was your favorite part?


  1. I have yet to go to New Orleans but hubby has now 2 times and brought home a box for me to make those beignets...and I still haven't. It says it makes like 100 of them so I was waiting for something big but I may just have to now!

  2. Ooh you are making me crave beignets from Cafe DuMonde!
