Unfortunately, I don’t have much to share with you today. After a lot of spirited discussion, Jasmine and I decided to drive the 690 miles all the way to Orlando from New Orleans. This was also our first four state day as we started in Louisiana and drove through Mississippi and Alabama on our way to Florida.
When we decided to go to New Orleans, I put a couple of must do things on the itinerary. The first was to go to the French Quarter, the second to eat at Mother’s and the third to have coffee and beignets (French doughnuts topped with powdered sugar) at Café du Monde.
I have always wanted to go to New Orleans, so when I awoke this morning, I did it with a little excitement, knowing that in a few hours I would be in the Big Easy. The only place we wanted to visit in Houston was the children’s museum. Unfortunately for us, the only day it isn’t open is Monday and guess what…… yes, that’s right it is Monday. With that unfortunate news, we decided to head straight to New Orleans after eating a bit of lunch in Houston. To be honest we just didn’t love the feel of Houston.
