The boys and I joined Mark in New Orleans on Sunday night. We left our home and our sweet Nala in Alaska and spent almost 24 hours on airplanes and in airports. The boys did great, spending a good part of their time practicing their yo-yo skills. We took a detour on our Portland layover and took the light rail for some famous Voodoo Doughnuts.

When we arrived in NOLA, Mark had our RV all stocked up and ready for us.We slept very well, then got up the next morning to go exploring. We walked miles and miles around the French Quarter, saw the Mississippi River, tasted beignets, redbeans and rice, and blackened red fish. Our second day in New Orleans, we went to the Audubon Zoo and saw many animals the boys had never seen before.
