Anniversary Trip to NOLA

Wade spent a few days with Aunt Kim while we took about 48 hours to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We hadn't even boarded the plane yet when I realized Wase wasn't going to miss us much at all!
Neither of us had spent time in New Orleans and there was a ton to experience. We spent the first afternoon doing a lot of exploring....having po boys for lunch and ending up hearing Jazz at Preservation Hall then The Spotted Cat on Frenchman street. We made it back to the hotel for a late night PB&J and milk (one of the traditions at Le Pavillion)
The next day we started off with coffee and beignets at Cafe Du Monde... fuel us up for a three hour bike tour of the French Quarter and Garden Districts. Yes we were the only two in the group that chose to wear helmets in the heat and humidity. 
From the bike tour , straight to the Natchez paddle boat for a ride on the Mississippi
A quick shower the dinner at Commander's Palace
It's been an amazing ride this first five years but I can't think of anybody else that would be better to have along this journey than Mike!  Thankfully, he signed up for another five.

Big Boy Bed

Where has my toddler gone?  Wade Michael is now my big boy as he likes to remind me.  He will hardly nap on the weekends anymore (even though he takes an hour and a half nap at school), will eat almost any food he sees us enjoying, and loves to pretend he is a superhero.  We still don't have the potty training thing down but he did poop and pee pee for his teacher at school this week so I think we are close to turning a corner. 

To top it off, the toddler bed is out in the barn and the second twin bed from my grandparents house is set up with the matching Peanuts sheets and quilt. 

Sweet dreams big boy!
