Day 84 - Thursday, March 25

We debarked today to very grey skies and rain. We were hoping to walk around downtown NOLA and see some sights but none of us wanted to do it in the rain.

However, I was determined to try my first beignet!!

I got to cap off a wonderful trip by meeting a great blogging friend!
Rachel from Musings of a Future Pastor's Wife!!!
She directed us (our GPS got us lost, go figure) to Cafe De Monde and met us there for coffee and beignets!

How fun is that?!
She brought along her beautiful daughter.....who was a bit shy at first.
I think all these boys overwhelmed her! :)

What a perfect ending to our vacation!!
...and the beignets?

My son got in the car and said "wow, those bengays were so good"
ya, we're from Arkansas! ha!

This was so fun! I'm so glad I got to meet you! You're even sweeter in person than on your blog, which seems impossible. :) And your boys are hilarious!

I enjoyed looking at the pictures of your trip. It looks like so much fun! The beignets is a great way to end!

Cafe de Monde, I am jealous. Beignets there are soooooo good. My mouth is watering just from the picture. As for the rain, it rained most of the time I was there a few years ago too.
