NoLa Family Weekend

>> Tuesday, May 14, 2013

About two months ago probably closer to three, we took the kids to New Orleans for the weekend.  Mr.'s firm hosted their annual family night at the Race tracks and we decided to make a little getaway out of it.  The timing couldn't have been better, or worse.  I had just gone back to work full-time and both the Mr. and I were getting sick.  A rainy weekend in the city, with no house cleaning or laundry was pretty amazing.  A whole afternoon may have even been spent cuddling in our bed watching it rain.

We had a good trip over to New Orleans with average traffic, but the kids remained pretty happy.  Once we got checked into the hotel, we did a quick wardrobe change and headed to the races.  Jackson absolutely loved seeing the horses and had large time "betting" with his daddy.  Mattie slept most of the evening in her car seat, allowing us to socialize a bit with Mr.'s co-workers.

Come Saturday morning I pretty much felt like death.  Mr. headed to the drug store and picked up plenty of Kleenex and found some sinus medicine I could take while nursing.  We tried to make the best of the rainy day.  We strolled through the city and grabbed some lunch and then headed to the Aquarium.  Again, Jackson loved seeing the animals and cruised through each exihbit!

Our original plan was to take the family out for a nice dinner on Saturday night...but after long afternoon naps we opted for a quick bite to eat and FroYo instead.  We all slept great that night, minus the coughing and sniffles.

We packed up Sunday morning, did a little shopping, grabbed lunch and headed home to the urgent care for meds to kick our sinus infections.  The best part of the entire weekend is that we managed to keep our little's healthy and sinus infection free:)
