Little E in the Big Easy

Posted on October 29, 2011. Filed under: E, travel |

Recently we headed down to New Orleans and O’s family from California met us there for a city exploring adventure.  He was a trooper through it all, he road in a street car, napped in his stroller, in arms, and while being carried in the Ergo. 

Street car ride to the Garden District.

E napping, since he was so comfortably napping we walked all the way back to the French Quarter….”just a couple more blocks”…..all of our legs were killing us by the end of this little “stroll”.


After that walk, we definitely earned the Beignets that we ate at Cafe Du Monde.  We ate them without an ounce of guilt.  I love the powdered sugar we each wore wear as a badge of honor after we were done.  




Pinky out.

Stay tuned for pictures from Day Two and more details on our trip.

E goes to Bean Town

Posted on October 28, 2011. Filed under: E, travel |

Back at the end of September E and I went our first adventure without Daddy.  We flew all the way to Boston to visit a good friend of mine from high school, her husband, and two sweat girls.  My only goal for the weekend was go hang-out and catch-up.  It is a good thing that those were my only goals because E game down with a high fever on Saturday afternoon and was feeling puny for the rest of the trip so we were pretty much home bound for most of the weekend. 

Here are a couple pictures from the two small adventures we took over the weekend.  The first is of Ethan while we were at the Fall Festival at their local church.  E really enjoyed the air jump.    IMG_3218

A trip to Jordan’s, which is a furniture shop that has an Imax Theater, water light show, Fudrucker’s and a Trapeze among other entertaining items.  The little ones love riding in the Taxi stroller.

E watching the “big girls” make birthday cards for their mom.  I love watching E act like a big kid.  He watched them so intently.IMG_3224

Proof that we visited.

IMG_3225 E going crazy in the airport.  I guess the medicine finally kicked in and he was feeling a little better before we got on the plane back to Atlanta.  This was a later flight so PJ’s were appropriate for a 16 month old, but if you look carefully you will see he is wearing the same outfit for all but one picture.  That is because I left him in his jammies for the entire day of Sunday.  After being up with him all night, I didn’t feeling like changing his clothes.
