Trip to New Orleans

So at the beginning of the summer I got a special treat-- I got to go to New Orleans with nothing to do but explore the city with my camera for a few days! The kids stayed at home with grandma and I tagged along with my husband on a business trip and had a blast. I had never been to the South and even though everyone informs me that New Orleans is not the South, it was so much fun to check out a place that is so different from home. Thanks to Jim Keating who grew up there, I had some idea of what I should explore and had an awesome time. Here are some photos from my trip!
