Spring Break 2011

Since this is David's first year of public school - this is also our first official spring break.

Our week started by spending a few days in Mobile.

While in Mobile we visited Gulf Shores, Dauphin Island, took the ferry, played in the Gulf of Mexico, toured the U.S.S. Alabama and a submarine, ate ate Felix's Fish Camp (amazing).

Then we went to New Orleans for a few days.

While there we went to the Audubon Zoo, the IMAX theatre, the Aquarium, the Insectarium (stupid)....which are all part of the Audubon Institutes. We also went to an NBA game (New Orleans Hornets vs. Denver Nuggets), walked Bourbon Street during the day, tried to avoid it during the night, went to Bourbon House (amazing upscale seafood restaurant and had some of their amazing Frozen Bourbon Milk Punch - sounds gross, I know, but it's delicious), rode the trolly, rode a city bus with millions of school children that just got out of school and swam on the top of a building.

It was a great start to our week.

I had to go to work Thursday and Friday, while David and Brad hung out together....then Friday night we ended up coming to Logan's Landing RV Park for the weekend to round out spring break. I love this's really nice. Unfortunately the pool isn't open yet and Logan Martin lake is still to cold for swimming. We've gone on several walks and took a 2 hour nap today (HEAVEN!).

It's back to reality Monday. But I'm sooo thankful for this special first spring break with my little family.
