When I found out that my long-time friend, Kathy, would be in NOLA taking care of her granddaughter, we scheduled a Saturday morning outing. I took care of her oldest daughter one summer, and visited her sister Ann and family in Austria during the summer of 1980. Now her girls are all grown up and mothers themselves, and Kathy and I are grandmas. Time marches on.
We went to a park, so that Annie Lou could play while we visited, and there was a festival going on, with lots of things to do and see.
Annie Lou did try out the bubbles.
Parades are common in the French Quarter, and we saw several while we were there.
Courtney and I went out to do a little shopping, and ran into these two parrots near Jackson Square.
We also saw these cute fleur de lis dresses.
Back at the hotel, another second line wedding parade was passing by.
We found ourselves back at the Blacksmith Shop for a hurricane, and Courtney took this photo of me just after I sent the daily Bible verse to the kids. She thought that was funny.
Sunday morning, I worshipped online with Pastor Dave at St. Luke's United Methodist Church. It's always good to start your day with prayer. Especially game day. :)
