Here's another highlight from our time in the States: the five days we spent in New Orleans with Nana and Brooke. We did all of the kid friendly tourist things in New Orleans. All of the things I kept meaning to do with my kids on previous trips but just never quite got around to doing: The Aquarium, The Zoo (with that fabulous new water space), The Insectarium, Camelia Grill, Beignets at Cafe DuMonde, plus lots of giggling, and catching up. It really was a great trip and if you haven't taken your kids to New Orleans recently, you should. You really should.
