New Orleans & Slim Goodies
Here are some pictures of my day with Rachelle and my nephews! We started our day off at Slim Goodies- a great little local eatery that serves breakfast all day long (you gots to love that)! Ron met us for breakfast and then we didn't seem him again until later that night since he had to get a bunch of stuff taken care of at his house. After we ate, we went down to the Aquarium only to find that it was closed! I couldn't believe it- pre-Katrina, it ONLY closed one day a year- Mardi Gras. Other than that-- it was open every single day! I ran into James, who works at the Aquarium, and he told me that due to being short staffed, not only do they close on Monday but they close at 5p during the summer instead of the usual 7p. So instead we walked along the river as much as we could until we couldn't take it anymore and had to go back to Canal Place where we had air conditioning! It was a fun day and it was great to hang out with my nephews one more time before I head back to Cali!
