Just a Hop, Skip, and a Jump

My parents came this weekend to help us get settled a little more. They are NOT a hop, skip, and a jump away. They are now a plane trip away. I can't really think about it. While they were here we did a lot around the house and took a little excursion to New Orleans for breakfast. My parents have never been, so we wanted them to experience a little bit of NOLA. So, since it is just a hop, skip, and a jump, we went to New Orleans. We had some beignets at Cafe Du Mond and walked around Jackson Square. We aren't sure if Lucy like the beignets more or the powdered sugar. We got to experience a little of the night life thanks to the guy sitting behind us at Cafe Du Mond who had obviously been up all night and was still three sheets to the wind. He eventually fell asleep at the table and knocked over his coffee on Phillip. I just knew it was throw up. Thank goodness I was wrong. The coffee woke him up because he said he thought some one had thrown up. My bet would have been on you buddy. It was a great time though! With Mimi and Pops.

Loving the beignets!
This was just too easy... as we were crossing Bourbon Street Lucy passed out. We thought that it was very appropriate. This better be the only time that it happens.

Pictures of the house to come...
In the mean time, I made Lu a sand box and she loves it. I wasn't sure how she would react to the sand, but she didn't mind it as long as it wasn't in her shoes and we would wipe it off of her hands. We are really enjoying having an outdoor area.

The best thing is that it has a lid and and wheels. We close it up when we're done and no mess. Fabulous!

1. I can't believe your parents have never been to NOLA!

2. Love the beignet pics and can't believe the drunk guy. And that's too cute about Lucy not passing out on Bourbon Street ever again!

3. Love the sandbox idea. I need to try that!!

I hope you are enjoying Baton Rouge and getting settled. It can't be too bad living that close to NOLA :).

And I am sooo copying the sandbox idea. Brilliant.

We miss y'all, but hope to come up there soon!

Give Lu a hug from Ollie-
