Holy crap, it’s been far too long! I can’t believe I’ve gone so long without blogging, considering I always have so much going on and even more to say! This past weekend was a great one. My family and I went on a mini-vacation in New Orleans. We got a great deal on a hotel downtown and let the kids swim. We figured we could do this often during the summer since we got rid of the pool and felt bad about it. Friday night we walked to an outdoor restaurant on the river called The Crazy Lobster. There was a nice breeze since we were on the river, a great view, and a live band playing good music (I couldn’t resist supporting a local band and I purchased their cd). After dinner we strolled around the river and walked back to the hotel. We were really tired, except the kids, of course, weren’t so tired. I tried to stay up with Carter as long as I could, but eventually I forced him to go to sleep. It took a while and I was getting a bit annoyed. When he finally fell asleep I was relieved, but my sleep was often interrupted by his movement and the odd feeling of sharing my sleeping space with him.
The next morning we woke up early to room service. It was amazing and we were in heaven! The food was delicious (especially the waffles and fresh fruit). We went swimming again for a while, then off to the children’s museum for more fun. We acted like tourists in our own city and it was a blast! I can’t wait to do it again. Great food, great times, great atmosphere, great company. What more can I ask for?
