Kathryn's New Orleans Birthday Trip

Enjoying a beer on Bourbon St.

Last week Kathryn turned 30! To celebrate this milestone, we spent three nights in New Olreans. Take a look...

Muffeletta at Central Grocery. Huge fans!

We went to Cafe Du Monde for beignets and coffee (three times in three days).

I held my promise to Kathryn by not blowing the powdered sugar all over her face while she posed for this picture.

Pat O'Brien's for hurricanes.

After a hurricane and a drink called the hand grenade Kathryn was ready to join the zydeco band.

Finished our first night at Preservation Hall. The band played two of my favorites, "The St. Louis Blues" and "St. James Infirmary."

An air boat tour swamp tour - Kathryn's reason to visit New Orleans.


The air boat driver (captain?) would feed the alligators marshmallows to get them up to the boat.

Kathryn and one of the alligators.

Boilering up in the swamp.

We tried to eat all of the mandatory New Orleans foods. Here we are enjoying some etoufee and a crawfish po boy.

The only time it rained during our trip was when we were on a carriage ride through the French Quarter.

We spent one night going from bar to bar on Bourbon St checking out all the crazies from the balconies.

Our celebration dinner was at K-Paul's. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

One of the best dinners of my life.

Our good friend Chris suggested we check out The Spotted Cat on Frenchman St. It was the most fun we had all weekend.

We went for a run around the Garden District. Here I am in front of the Belfort, home of the Real World New Orleans (season 9).

And here I am at the home of the Real World Back to New Orleans (season 24).
