Vacation: Day 7, part 2
Yes! We finally get to meet Chris! He wrote a very sweet post that pretty much talked about all the awesomely cool stuff we did, so I won't repeat any of that. But what he didn't tell you is what a truly special, truly incredible, truly sweet-to-the-very-core-of-his-being person he really is!!!!
By the time it was getting close to Chris's expected arrival at our hotel room, I was just beside myself. I was nervous, yes. But way, way, way more excited. I paced around that room and probably drove everyone crazy. ;) And the second I opened the door, well, it was like I'd known him all my life! Honestly, I really have no words to describe how much I loved spending time with this sweetheart of a human being!!!! The only down side? Well, I have missed him every single minute since we left. :(
And just so you know I'm not biased, my entire family fell in love with Chris, too!!! And I think you'll be able to see that in all these photos. :D Seriously, Chris is so fun, and he made every one of us feel welcome! Not to mention that he is a primo tour guide!!! Wow...what a way to experience the city. Seriously.
Chris, I love you! Hope you enjoy the pics! (I will of course be sending you that disc.)
Chris helping Max test the spooky tale about the slaves' quarters.
Oh okay, I know I already posted this photo, but I love it so much I had to stick it in here, too. :D
Walking in the French Quarter.
In Jackson Square.
What a lucky woman I was to get to see New Orleans with these two fellas!!!!
I hate, hate, hate seeing myself in pictures, but you know what...I'm gonna treasure this one.
Not sure if you can tell, but Maxidoodle loved his alligator sausage.
This picture just doesn't begin to do this Borders justice. It is absolutely gorgeous, housed in an old mansion.
Vacation: Day 8
New Orleans has the coolest graveyards!
Partners in crime. ; )
Love this guy!
Sorry Rich, but that face is so goofy that I just couldn't NOT post this. ; )
Did I mention that we had fun? :D :D :D :D :D :D
