Trip to the South

We took an epic trip to New Orleans and Pensacola last November.  Ken was not overly impressed by the French quarter.  It was certainly unique.  I’m not sure that I ever need to go back there (the French quarter or New Orleans), but I’m glad we went.

Mom and Dad and Lauren and Justin came too.  We ate SO much good food.  That was definitely the highlight.

The Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola was incredible.  SO many cool planes.  We also got to see the Blue Angels practice, which was awesome.

Anna was a big fan of the gulf.  She wasn’t a big fan of the sand, which she fell down in several times and got a face full.  Ooops.

Our whole party except me and Anna chartered a fishing boat and got to spend a day fishing.  I think they had a good time, although they were disappointed they didn’t get to take any fish home.  We made up for it by buying lots of fresh seafood and devouring it.

Daddy had fun in the gulf too!

Not pictured: touring a battleship, walking around beautiful parks and neighborhoods in New Orleans, going to a fort, fishing off of a pier, seeing how huge the Mississippi is, having a childhood friend captain us on a pontoon boat for several hours, an art fair, playing games, watching my brother-in-law graduate from his Air Force training, and many, many amazing meals.  It was a great trip!
