Lucky Number 13

After the July 4th weekend festivities wrapped up Husband #1 and I jumped in the truck, left the kids behind and raced toward New Orleans before anyone caught on. Actually, it was pre-arranged but still fun! Monday July 5th was our 13th anniversary so we spent two nights in New Orleans being tourists. We ate all the seafood we could while it is still available non-oiled. We bought ourselves some art as our anniversary present.

We saw this street performer and at first glance he really looked like a construction worker until you noticed his ladder wasn't leaning on anything!
Where St. Louis meets Bourbon Street...literally and figuratively!!

Breakfast at Cafe du Monde!! Yummy beignets :)
Now we are home for almost two weeks without any children! I will drive down next week and pick them up and bring back my niece with us for a week long visit. We have various parties planned for this weekend and then I plan to strip the kitchen wallpaper next week. We have gone on trips without the kids but we have never spent time at home without them here. Well, there was a short period while we were packing to move here but that doesn't count since that whole two month period has been blocked out due to trauma :)
