NOLA - Friday

I decided to break up our New Orleans trip into 3 parts to cover all the details (and because I took WAY too many photos!)

We headed out for New Orleans on Thursday afternoon and spent the night in Grenada, MS.  Sorry - no pictures from that portion of the trip.  We crashed at the Holiday Inn and hit up a local sports bar to watch the Blues hockey game.  

On Friday, we got on the road fairly early to finish our trip to the South.  

Patrick was a very good driver...

And I was an EXCELLENT passenger...

And I had a little fun playing with my camera...

When we arrived in New Orleans, we picked up Patrick's Uncle Tommy and headed to the French Quarter to meet up with his Aunt Faye and a couple other relatives - Pippy & Ann from California.

The French Quarter was full of character.  I loved all the balconies and greenery and everywhere you turned there were Saints & LSU flags.

Since we were celebrating Patrick's sister Jessie's 21st birthday, we went to Pat O'Briens piano bar.  The place was packed and we had a great time singing along.  The decor was very cool with beer steins hanging from the ceilings.

The birthday girl and her sister Liz both had Pat O'Briens famous Hurricanes.

And I tried some of Patrick's - it sure was STRONG!

Friday night we stayed at Patrick's cousin Brandy's house.  Unfortunately, my camera didn't make many evening appearances.  More to follow in Part 2...
