Welcome back!!! I bet your kitties missed you!
Thanks Pam! We had some AWEFUL weather on the way back- it porured down rain the entire time and people were driving crazy!
He kept counting all of the cars he wanted to write tickets to if they came into Bartlett (where he's a cop)
) Fosters enjoyed the car ride though! He was so sweet the whole time! I swear that dog lives to go on road trips
/ We went to the French Quarters - We spent a while just going up and down it...we ate lunch at one of the resturants there that serves Po Boys..(i don't remember the name, but i think i took a picture! I will have to see!) and then we had bengeits (sp?) and cafe o lai's (sp?) at Cafe du Monde- it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good!!
And rediculiously crazy there!!! Haha....it was packed and there were pigeons and powdered sugar everywhere
We also hit the market place and a ton of other sites. I didn't really buy much- but i did snap a few pictures. Unfortunately they're all on my camera phone- everyone forgot their cameras- so i'm afraid the quality won't be super. I'll download and share them if they turn out good
/ I'm glad your friends resturant didn't get hit. It looks like it was really just scattered out- some parts got hit (and pretty much destroyed) and some didn't get more than a shingle or two off of them). The area by the superdome and also going into the city looked aweful- i cried when i saw it. I don't even wanna know what the 9th ward looks like- we didn't even see that part- i can only imagine. I definitely applaud the people who were brave enough to go back and try to keep their city going- they're strong
. / The kitties were definitely excited to see us
My mom babysat them for us and spoiled them rotten
