Wer'e Back!

We made it back safely from our vacation in New Orleans. We had a good time, but I can say that a cruise like the one we had last year can not be outdone. Unfortunately funds were not there for a "fancy" vacation this year.....but anytime spent together will do.

We left on Sunday and checked into the hotel around 4:00. I booked the hotel in advance and was really pleased with the rate....but after arriving there I can see why it was "affordable". Don't get me wrong, it was clean and the staff was friendly but....let's just say, thank goodness were not used to a high standard of living! We didn't have any real plans other than just to be somewhere out of Mobile and to visit the Aquarium, so after we checked in, Toby and I lounged around the pool and relaxed while Summer swam a little while.

Since the Aquariam is closed on Mondays we decided to take a trip to City Park and visit the Story Land Amusement Park there. I didn't remember that Storyland is only open on Sat. and Sun. so we just let Summer play in the park and do some park sightseeing.

After we left the park we let Summer take a look at Lake Ponchatrain.

We went back to the hotel and Toby and Summer took a dip in the pool. Later on we took a walk downtown and found Toby a celebration drink for his Birthday....he is 33 years old today. Happy Birthday Toby! We walked and walked and before you know it it was getting dark. Summer was really enjoying the walk and taking in all the sights but mine and Toby's feet were about to kill us, so at her resistence we headed back to the hotel for the night.

On Tuesday we visited the Aquariam and I have to say this was my favorite part of the whole trip. The Aquarium was great. Summer got to pet and feed a nurse shark and some sting rays. We also got to watch them feed the animals through the glass tunnel. We made the Aquariam a whole day thing so when we got back to the hotel we hung around there for the rest of the night. Toby and Summer took an evening dip in the pool and it was cold. It had lightly rained all day so the air and water were pretty cool.
