New Orleans, Louisiana!!!

Hi everybody, I’m sorry that I’ve been away for a few days, but I’ve been really busy. It’s finally here – family vacation and dancing at Disney World!! I spent all day Friday and Saturday packing and getting ready. We woke up at 4:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, loaded the car and were on the road by 5:30 a.m. driving to Disney. We drove a total of 13 ½ hours. We stopped for breakfast and for lunch, and we stopped twice to get gas. We drove through Dallas, TX and into Shreveport, LA and then to New Orleans. Man, Louisiana sure does have a lot of swamps!! We drove over several really big bridges and crossed the Mississippi River. When we got to New Orleans, we checked into our hotel and walked around in the French Quarter. We ate crawfish and crab cakes and boudin balls, which are made with sausage and rice. They are like meatballs. We ended the night by going to the world famous Café Du Monde and eating beignets. They are a lot like doughnuts and they were awesome, hot and covered in powdered sugar! Man, that place was crowded! There were people everywhere. Take a look at my vacation pictures so far.
