Houston Trip - New Orleans and the Gulf Coast

Day 2 - New Orleans and the Gulf Coast - January 13, 2017

We started the day by hitting the French Quarter.

First stop was at the Cafe Du Monde for some beignets.

With lots of powdered sugar.

Next, we just strolled through the French Quarter.

We ate lunch at Cafe Carmo and the highlight were the pão de queijo (Brazilian cheese bread).  I've had these at Rodizio or other places and they've always been ok, but they were amazing.  I'm craving them just thinking about it.

It wouldn't be a true adventure if we didn't take a long drive just to check a few more states off the list for these girls.  We stopped at the beach in Biloxi, Mississippi on our way to Alabama.

Lyla didn't want to be in any pictures, so of course it was my personal challenge to catch her in a photo or two.

Caught her.

Crack kills.

Ada and Isaac.

We continued on our journey, but because it was going to be late before we would get to our dinner destination in Mobile, Alabama we stopped at The Shed for some BBQ snacks.  This was the type of legitimate southern BBQ place that you should probably avoid if you don't want to get sick.

We ate dinner at Zea Rotisserie and Grill.  It was good.

Poor Lyla, our picky eater.  She couldn't find anything that she would eat, and was having a bit of a freakout so she had to go in parking lot timeout.  This girl won't eat chicken nuggets, hamburgers, french fries, mac & cheese (unless it's cancerous Kraft), hot dogs (until tonight 7/24), corn dogs, etc.  She's a tough one sometimes.

Tomorrow: More New Orleans!
