On vacation in January 2004, we flew into New Orleans and spent a couple of days there. We stayed within a few blocks of the convention center where CNN is reporting a convoy of supplies has just arrived. While there, we spent two evenings walking Bourbon Street with our two young children. Our 2 year old dubbed it "The Party."
From New Orleans, we spent 3 days driving across the Gulf coast, stopping in Gulfport and Biloxi on our way to Disney World. Except for the too frequent bickering in the backseat, it was a delightful trip.
Obviously, I'm glad we took that trip when we did. Biloxi and Gulfport have been effectively wiped off the map, and New Orleans will never be the same.
Today, I decided to go through the pictures from that trip and to share a couple of my favorites here.
Here are the kids at "The Party."
And here is one of the things that Daddy loved about "The Party."
