Officially a Cajun!

Not only does Logan have Cajun blood running through him, but he now has officially been initiated into the Cajun world.  We had a wonderful trip with Mimi and Pop over Spring Break to the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans.
We all had a blast and got to spend time with a fun group of family friends.  We spent most of our time outside enjoying the beautiful weather, listening to great music and eating delicious food.  We were busy the entire time trying to squeeze into as much fun as we could.  I'll tell our story with pictures. 

Logan got to go on his very first plane ride, and I must admit I was a little nervous about it.  I filled his little back pack with all sorts of toys and goodies to keep his busy, but....I never even as much as unzipped the bag.   My little prince slept from the moment we sat down on the plane to the very moment people were getting off the plane in N.O.   He is such a perfect angel! 

Staying busy at the Atlanta airport.  Taking everything out of the bags.

Logan was ready to go with beads in hand!

Our first meal was at Daddy's FAVORITE restaurant...Acme Oyster House in the French Quarter!  Chris couldn't wait to bring Logan here, and I'm sure it will be a stop each trip!  This little man got a few bites of some new things while we were gone, including shrimp, fish, crab, crawfish bread, and although I think it's yucky, I guess he got his Daddy's taste buds!
The next day we headed to Cafe' Du Monde for yummy beignets before being our exciting day!
The whole gang!

Little boy in a BIG city!
We went on a street car ride, and once again, just like the plane, he feel right asleep.  I guess it must be something about the loud noises that just lulls him to sleep. 

He was WIDE awake on the way home and had fun looking outside with the windows down.
Then, it was back to the streets for more partying!
We had to make a stop at the "to go" daiquiri bar!
Logan loved all the fountains around the city and really wanted to jump in.

Next, it was time for a real second line parade on Bourbon Street.  I guess Logan was anticipating the excitement, because he knew he need a quick cat nap before it started.

3 Sevins getting ready to watch Logan's first parade on Bourbon Street!

He woke up just in time for the parade, but he wasn't quite sure what was going on.
Still not sure why all of these crazy people are dancing and throwing things at us.

We spent a little more time in the hotel than on previous trips (before we had the bundle!), so we had lots of fun while we were there.
Logan decided to skip his little Winnie the Pooh toothbrush and liked Daddy's much better!
Have you ever walked out of the bathroom and had a piece of toilet paper stuck to your foot? :)
I'm pretty sure to say Logan was starving this day, would be quite an understatement!
There was an amazing indoor heated pool, that felt like a bathtub.  Logan was quite the little fish!  I can't wait to get him back into the pool next month!

We spent a lot of our time, outside in the beautiful weather listening to a variety of bands play.  Despite the very loud music, Logan still managed to squeeze in his two hour naps!
Getting in his daily "Pops Time"
Running around Jackson Square
We decided to have beignets on our last day and Logan loved them again!

We had such a great time and we're really sad to leave, especially because that meant it was back to work the next day.  Logan was a dream on the plane ride home again.  He feel asleep during take off and slept the entire way home, literally all the way home when Granddaddy picked us up.
I took this on the way to the airport.  Do you think he was trying to tell me something? :)
