We decided to call it an "early" day and headed back home to pack, eat dinner together and visit a little more before everyone had to leave the next morning.
The next day, Mimi and Papa were gone before we even got up; they had a 6 a.m. flight. We all loaded up and took Caitlin, Kevin and Holli to the airport for a little later flight and then the rest of us got on the road to head all the way back to New Orleans in ONE DAY! Yea, you might think that would be bad but it really wasn't and Beckett and Parker Ann were both real troopers! We listened to the LSU game on the radio, made quite a few feeding, diaper and potty breaks and I alternated between reading and knitting.
Once in New Orleans, Robby and I stayed with Ryan and Allison. We had to stay through Monday because we were scheduled to pick up our lighting for that backyard renovation project of ours (Remember that?!). I also decided that I wanted to go down to Magazine Street to look for a bathroom vanity and mirror for the pool house as well. We went down to Nadeau, where I DID find what I was looking for...
The night before we left, Robby and I took Ryan and Allison and David and Codi out for dinner at a great little sushi restaurant...also on Magazine Street. OK, we LOVE Magazine Street!
After picking up our light fixtures the next morning, we made the trek back home. It was fun to get away with the family, but once again I must say, Dorothy was right..."There's no place like home!"
