The kids had never been to Louisiana, so after Tom was done with his business trip, we headed to New Orleans.
|Jackson Square, New Orleans|
Our plan was to go to Storyland before checking into our hotel, but we arrived late and it was already closed. We ended up getting a little energy out at the nearby playground at New Orleans City Park.
The next morning, it was time to see what New Orleans was all about.
We walked to the French Quarter, which we figured would be more kid-friendly at 8 am than at night!

They also sold Cafe Du Monde paper hats for 15 cents – souvenir bargain! Luke was quite happy.
After breakfast, we walked around the French Quarter, which was pretty family friendly in the morning. We found a toy store, The Little Toy Shop, where Scarlett got a pretty mask for $5.
We also saw a horse and carriage, a street car, and a banana tree! – how fun is that?
We headed back to our hotel to check out and then go to Storyland when it was actually open.
My Storyland recap is coming in the next post!
