New Orleans

 We spent 3 days in New Orleans for the wedding of my best friend Allison.  It was A LOT of fun!  These pics are a bit out of order, but you get the idea.

 This is the sign for the "Faulkner House" It is the building that William Faulkner wrote his first novel.  It was located right around the corner from our hotel.
 Jackson Square.
Rory after a LONG car ride.
 We were trying to convince her to throw her penny in the fountain...she was not so sure it was a good idea.  She did finally do it...just took a few minutes to convince her.
 The statue of Andrew Jackson in Jackson Square.
 One of the many courtyards.  There were SO many that were beautiful. 




 Rory at the rehearsal dinner.  I didn't get a lot of her that night because it was SO crowded. 
 Since I was in the wedding, I didn't get any pics of the ceremony.  It was lovely though.  After the ceremony, everyone did a 2nd line through the French Quarter (8 blocks down, 8 blocks back) while the space was flipped to the reception.  It was a wonderful time.  Allison looked beautiful.  Rory slept through the ceremony and a part of the reception.

 Someone was a bit nosy.
 "Huh??"
 Mr. and Mrs. Hampton




 Rory and Aunt Allison.

 One of Emeril's restaurants.



 Brad and Angelin@'s house.  Our carriage driver said that he sees Brad occasionally, but he hasn't ever run into her.



 The 2nd night that we were there, we got to stay in the owner's suite.  It had a corner wrap around balcony that overlooked Bourbon Street.  It was AWESOME!
 Behind the Church on Jackson Square, looking at Pirate Alley.
 More Jackson Square and the Church.

 Rory and Daddy, getting ready to leave to come home.
I might have to do another N.O. post, but I am pretty wiped out.  It was a lot of fun, we enjoyed getting away for the weekend and Rory was so good.
