This past weekend Phillip and I had a get away to New Orleans. His parents came to our house and watched Lu. It has been a long time since we have had a vacation together. We didn't really know what to do with ourselves. We did a lot of walking and saw a lot of craziness. What else do you expect in New Orleans. We went to one of the oldest jazz bars on Friday night. Not only was the jazz bar old, but so were the people in it. We were the youngest by about 20 years. Phillip loves a "good experience." Saturday we walked, took a carriage ride, and walked some more. My senior prom date and his wife took us to a great restaurant called Mat and Naddies. It is amazing! The new "Real World" is filming there also, so they drove us by the house. Also, amazing! When we got home there was a shooting outside of our little B & B. No one was injured, but at least 7 shots were fired. The people got away. The scary part was that we were walking home right when it happened. I am so glad we didn't leave any earlier. We had a great time, bullets and all!
The Queen Anne hotel-- scene of the crime. Our room was on the top right.

Listening to jazz at the Palm Court

Jackson Square

I won $11 and cashed out! We used our winnings to take a cab instead of the slow street car.

The Real World House...horrible picture. We had to take it fast because security was sitting right there. Crime Scene in front of our hotel. You can see the white markers on the ground marking the shell casings.

Looks like tons of fun! That's great that you guys got to do that together. I can't believe that about the shooting. How SCARY! I'm glad you were ok though.
