We landed in New Orleans just before noon. Once we were checked into our hotel we met up with my sister-in-law Kelli and headed out to walk around in downtown New Orleans.
All this time I always thought that the World Trade Center was in New York? Hmmm…
Here is a picture that JP snapped of me right before I fell in the fountain.
Ok ,I was totally kidding on that last picture… I didn’t fall in. But I did pose with a lobster!
Kelli and I say CHEESE!
This is the view from room 4804 in the Sheraton. A perfect view from 48 floors up of the Mississippi River Delta!
My costume plan for JP fell through because it didn’t fit right but I still went out as a Vampire.
Here is Kelli, my brother Alex and me. I teased Alex that he was dressed as JP and JP was dressed as Alex.
I think I have mentioned before that I played on a softball team sponsored by Pat O’Brian’s here in San Antonio so it was exciting to go to the original Pat O’s in New Orleans.
Me and Kelli on one of the balconys above Burbon Street.
I am sure everyone has heard of Burbon Street. They close off this road to cars every night so that the people who are out partying are safe. This is what the baracades at the end of each block look like.
I took this picture for Angela because she hates it when I have a shark in hand. These shark bite drinks were delicious though.
This is one of my favorite pictures of JP. If you know him you know he loves his cigars.
All of the pictures I posted above are from my cell phone. I am very sad to report that the camera from our trip was lost… as well has the hundreds of pictures on its memory card. I won’t mention who lost it but if it makes anyone feel better it wasn’t me.
