new orleans trip

we took the girls down to new orleans for our very first family vacation. we had a great time.

leigh discovered that she really liked to pull sara beth's hair and that every time she did she got her hand spanked. it was a constant battle...finally sb just walked!

their favorite things about new orleans no particular order...

1. sofa bed
2. taxi cabs
3. pigeons
if we had gone for these three things only they would have been happy, but we did a lot more...

daddy had a work dinner on thursday night at acme's. it was delicious. the girls were so good so it made it fun for all!
the next morning we went to cafe du monde...and their responses were...

we don't know where our kiddos get their taste buds--i mean, who doesn't like beignets

our next stop was the insectarium. this place was so much fun.

sara beth wasn't sure sure about touching this giant beetle...but she did.
they loved playing in the "love bug"
the butterfly room was so beautiful. if you look closely you can see several butterflies on the plants. they were flying all around the room.
after a delicious lunch at gordon biersch and a short nap, we were off to the aquarium.
they played on the slide for a long time

they both really enjoyed looking at the fish. my pictures are absolutely terrible because i couldn't get them to focus on the camera.
then we were off to an imax movie--sara beth's first movie in a theatre
saturday we went to the zoo. here sara beth is posing with the gator.
i love this picture. leigh was very enthusiastic when telling zeb and sister about the snake.
of course we rode the carousel

and finally proof that i actually went along on the trip!

such fun...looks like a great family trip! one problem-the girls look like they are growing up. leigh looks too old in some of the pics. it's just not right.
