Doug had to do some work at one of the properties in New Orleans so we drove down there for President's weekend. We survived the 5 hours in the car but I can tell that the 18-21 hour trip to AZ is not going to be very fun! We stayed in one of the apartments at the property and the kids loved having a playground. Doug had tons of business meetings while were out there and he preached at a church on Sunday. The kids did really well considering they had to sit still and be quiet for most of it. We did squeeze in a few hours of fun and went to the French Quarter. We ate some beignets (I have no idea how it is spelt but it is pronounced ben-yay and tastes just like a zeppoli), rode the trolley back and forth, played at a local park, and then rode the ferry.
We stopped at a mall on the way there to eat lunch and let the kid ride the carousel. I don't know why but Logan always picks the bench:
