New Orleans

Mardi Gras World | New Orleans | Louisiana

Since we hadn't been to New Orleans since we were little kids, Haley and I decided to head to one of the most touristy places in the city: Mardi Gras World. Normally I avoid places that involve organized tours but in this particular instance, it was really interesting to not only see the giant, colorful floats but also get a behind-the-scenes look at the artists at work!

After viewing the prop masters at work, we headed off to the warehouse to view some of the previous years' props and floats. Haley had a talent for mimicking the poses of some of our favorites!

Shortly after returning from our Californian adventure, Haley and I took off for a week to a place we hadn't visited since our childhood: New Orleans. The architecture. The music. The food. Oh my goodness, the food. We had a fabulous time exploring the Big Easy!
