I have been putting a trip off to New Orleans for a few months. I have been there once before and it didn’t leave a great impression on me. So we had a week with the older kids off to Trek and we had no excuses left. We dropped out little guy off with family in Utah Sunday, celebrated Father’s Day with Keith’s parents and left early Monday for the Big Easy. We arrived early afternoon and checked in to a great little hotel in the French Quarter called the Hotel Provincial. Oh and by the way building 5 is haunted.
Day one we had dinner at The Hard Rock Cafe in New Orleans. Salad, burger and fries plus Virgin Margaritas! Got some tees and did a Ghost Tour at 8 pm. The guide was great, we learned some history and even got a little scared. There are some places in the French Quarter that are a little creepy.
Tuesday we had business most of the day. Our agent and his wife took us to dinner at Morton’s Steak House. I had the Filet, Keith had Prime Rib. What you must know is that their Legendary Sundae is absolutely amazing. I did share but I got more than Keith did.
Wednesday we completed our business and was introduced to someone that may help us on a few projects. She was awesome and sure understands what we were after. Excited to work with her. We got to see a really cool property on Royal Street. Half a block away from Bourbon Street. So basically the heart of the French Quarter. It was built in 1853 and has been with the same family for six generations. Beautiful 12 foot ceilings, a private courtyard, private parking, a balcony room and balcony overlooking Royal Street. It was pretty awesome.
We flew home Thursday. Keith’s dad had our son and one of the cousins. He drove us back to Park City. Retrieved our cars and headed home. Got caught in ugly traffic so was later than expected back in Idaho Falls. Stopped at Wendy’s in Brigham City for dinner.
Friday night was Cinema Night. The boys had friends over to watch Cars on the Lawn and our daughter had friends to watch Ghostbusters in the Theater. Keith grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. Chips, soda and homemade ice cream to round it out. Lit the Barn in green last night for last call.
Today I slept in. Honestly was crazy tired. Got up at 8 and went for a run. Went to Smiths for groceries and then had a dōTERRA class on google hangouts. Pretty good sized group I was excited. Took a nap and now I want to go out and eat. I’m hungry lol. It was a good week!
Regarding New Orleans. I enjoyed it more this time. Maybe it was because I got to experience different things and see some pretty cool places. It was busy but not as hectic. It is a place you can see some bad things but there is a cool side as well. I may go back someday.
