Life Lately and New Orleans

I don’t know about you guys, but 2018 is zooming by. So much has happened / is happening, I hardly know where to start.

This year I’ll turn 40, and I guess that means its time for a little maintenance. I’ve had two minor surgeries in as many months, but I am now on the road to recovery. To help out, my Dad came to spend the month of March with us. While he’s no Mrs. Doubtfire {or Grammy for that matter}, he’s done a great job taking care of us and even busting through the honey-do-list. More on that later.

His first week here, we spent a few days in New Orleans. In all the years we’ve visited New Orleans, see {here} and {here}, this was the first time we drove over the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridge. Until 2011, it was the longest bridge over water. How cool is that?!?

We marvelled at the architecture in the Garden District; lunched in the French Market; took a ferry to Algiers Point, the cutest little suberb with darling homes, quaint restaurants, and neighborhood playgrounds; did a little shopping at the Riverwalk; and explored the French Quarter.

On our last day, we planned to visit the Jean Lafitte National Park to get the kids’ national park passports stamped. However, a severe thunderstorm derailed our plans. The weather was so bad and predicted to last so long that we decided to pack up and headed home. Womp! Womp!

In other news, both Stinky and Blinky maintained all As for the third quarter at school! Stinky even got a decent behavior report from his teacher. {Prayer hands!!!} In any event, I’m looking forward to the end of the school year. I’m sure Stinky and his teacher are too. Sigh!

I am loving the warmer days. Can’t wait to be released from doctor’s orders and get cracking in my garden again. Just three more days.

I think that covers it. Hope you guys have a great week!
