This last week was our spring break and we had the BEST week. We realized this might be the last spring break we have all the kids together, so I did a priceline bid on a hotel in New Orleans, got an amazing deal and off we went for a few days. We really had a fantastic time. It is truly a gift to have a family that loves being together and enjoys each other so much!
Only TWO more weeks and I get to visit y'all!!!! This has been very challenging but has definitely drawn me closer to God and allowed me more time to spend with Him. But more about that later...
Here's my week:
I couldn't pick just one picture today.
We had Minute to Win It in Sunday School today...it was SO FUN!!!
The kids were awesome and loved all the games!
We have decided to pile in the car tomorrow and head to New Orleans for a few days. I am not happy about the weather forecast while we are there. :(
We drove 7+ hours today and are thrilled with our hotel....I bid on priceline for it and got a 4 star hotel for about 30% of the original price!!!! Jason's and my first time to eat crawfish...LOVED them!
There are still remnants in the trees from Mardi Gras in most places!!
We took advantage of the lack of rain this morning and did a self guided walking tour of the Garden District. Such beautiful homes and I loved the trees!!!
We ended the day enjoying some jazz at Preservation Hall.
Of course we had to try Aunt Sally's pralines and got to see them making them!!
A dreary, rainy day is the perfect time to stop by Cafe Du Monde for a cafe au lait and some beignets!!
On the way out of town we made one last stop for some beignets before heading home!! You definitely don't want to breathe IN while eating one!! If you look carefully you can see the powdered sugar flying off as Jason breathed OUT when he took a bite!!
These two ladies help me develop the curriculum for our children's program at church. The elders gifted us at Christmas with gift cards to a spa. We finally found a date when we could all three go together. Can I just say the pedicure felt A.MA.ZING on these tired feet of mine that walked all over New Orleans!!!
That's it for my week. I really had a hard time picking out the pictures...there was so much more we did on our vacation. How was your week?
