Our Cajun Christmas Getaway

We decided to spend Blair's first week off from school on a Cajun Christmas Road Trip to Baton Rouge and New Orleans. 

 We stayed at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capital Center, one of my FAVORITE hotels.  We went sightseeing around downtown and then ate the best meal of our lives at Texas de Brazil....YUM!!
The Big Easy

Saint Louis Cathedral

Pat O'Brien's and their World Famous Hurricanes
 Beignets at Cafe Du Monde
Around the French Quarter

Mardi Gras World

We took a tour at Mardi Gras World, the company that makes all of the floats for the nearly 40 Mardi Gras parades that take place in New Orleans.  It was AWESOME!  The floats will all the flowers on them are for the parade that is put on by Harry Connick Jr.



Merry Christmas!

Hopefully you found our blog because you got our Christmas card!!  I haven't been the best at getting them out over the past few years.  Last year I even pathetically ordered them and never got them addressed and sent. :)  From our family to yours, we truly hope that you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS full of good company, good food and good laughs....that's what ours are always made of!
