Randomness and lots of pictures.

We had a holiday weekend...
Sunday night we decided (very short notice)
to invite Konnie and Isaac over for dinner.
I took lots of pics of the babies playing together.

Here are just a few:
Hammin it up!
Lovin the ball popper!!

Waitin to get into the kitchen-'Hey, we're hungry too!!'

The boys playing.

Isn't this typical?? He's trying to get a kiss and
she just wants to talk on the phone!
I actually did get a pic of them giving each other a kiss,
but it was too blurry :(

But, I mean, really, do you think she'll be able to resist this face?!?
Monday, Memorial Day, we all (Konnie and her fam too)
drove over to New Orleans to go to the aquarium.
We saw lots of these:

Emmie was not so enthused about being in her stroller, can you tell?

The boys.
Then we went to the Riverwalk Mall
and stopped here-Cafe Du Monde-for world famous coffee and beignets
(pronounced ben-yays)
Since we had just had a snack and all, we decided to stop here-
The Fudgery
-and buy a ridiculous amount of Fudge.
And the show is almost as good as the fudge!
They sing(loudly) getting the crowd to participate
while they are working the fudge.
At the end of the show are free samples!
This was our first trip to NO since Katrina.
It was depressing to see how bad things still are.
Just like here, there are so many things that are
still not repaired or replaced.
We had a really good time, though.
I can't wait to go back and do all the things we
didn't have time to do...
the zoo, the French Market, Jackson Square,
and ride the trolley down
St. Charles and see all the beautiful homes!
Can you tell I used to LOVE New Orleans?
Anyway, on the way home we stopped
and ate together at TGIFriday's in Gulfport.
Our waiter was a complete ditz!!
It was really funny.
And then we said our goodbyes and headed home.
What a great couple of days.

How fun spending time with family and friends. That is so neat that you are IRL friends with blogging friends too. Cute pictures.

Great pictures!! I sounds like y'all had a SUPER busy weekend! I want to take the boys to NO but I don't really want to do the zoo or aquarium again...I was thinking we would try the children's museum but I haven't heard much about it.
