But you'll see how we fill our time.
Without further adieu (a do?) remind me to figure out the proper way to type that - too enthralled in updating the blog to start now.
Ahem - One year ago - New Orleans
Last year, my Aunt Becky turned 60, and her daughter Melissa did a wonderful job of planning a fantastic adventure with Becky's sisters and their daughters/ daughter-in-laws, whoever could make it. It was Becky, Melissa, My mom, Moi, Aunt Susie and Betty. The hotel was beautiful, the food was incredible, and just having some really REAL family/ women time was great. I'll post a few of my favorite photos and let Betty tell you about the adventures.

To read up from my cousin Betty's blog (she does a wonderful job keeping up to date and capturing beautiful photos and stories - check out her take http://busybees5.blogspot.com/2014/12/travelogue-nola.html)
and the day came. bobby's aunt and cousin invited us along for her bucket list/birthday trip to the big easy. with the kids settled in at school and my less hectic days, how could i say no? and believe me i tried.
we landed, took the shuttle and met the other ladies at the french market inn.
that night we took a city tour that took us to see architecture and listen to the history of the city. it was the perfect way to get acquainted with this place and learn about all of the cultures that make up new orleans.
so hey, welcome to new orleans.
comme ci, comme ca.
