Home from Vacation

We originally had planned to go to the Gulf Shores area for vacation, but had to change our plans about 6 weeks ago, due to the oil spill. We decided to go on a cruise to someplace with a beach. We cruised out of New Orleans to Progreso, Yucatan and Cozumel. It was fun, but a little harder with a toddler and all the "stuff" a toddler requires. But we made great family memories! Here are some pictures ...


ON OUR WAY! NEW ORLEANS, HERE WE COME JUST 6 HOURS TO GO!



D, THE FIRST TIME SHE FIGURED OUT JACOB'S LADDER!





FATHER'S DAY DINNER AT LANDRY'S SEAFOOD IN THE FRENCH QUARTER. I guess the pink hue is from all the neon lights.
