Week 17: Mini Reunion in New Orleans

This week we got the chance to travel again, first to Jay’s grandmother’s house in Prescott, then to Jay’s parents in Phoenix, and finally to New Orleans.  The occasion was my high school friend Andy’s wedding.  We were pleasantly surprised to find that many other friends had made the trip (we are spread out all over the country), creating a mini 10 year high school reunion.  Only this reunion had the best food, a fun location, and a fabulous wedding!  Congratulations Andy and Margaret, we are so happy for you!

Yes, those are flamingos behind us in the picture.  Andy and Margaret’s reception was at the Audubon Tea Room at the zoo!

Volunteering:  Sharon continued promotion of the 20th Annual Made in the Shade Beer Festival.

Beer of the Week: Well, the beer we drank the most of was the Abita Amber, but we preferred the Abita Turbo Dog.  Actually, the best beer we tried in New Orleans was the Crescent City Brew House’s Black Forest.  Thanks Kate for the recommendation!

Something New:  Neither of us had ever been to New Orleans before.  We really enjoyed our trip and hope to go back when we can explore the surrounding area as well.

Highlight of Being in One Place:  This week we spent very little time at home, but having a home to return to is probably one of the best things about being in one place.
