New Orleans

Stroll along the mighty Mississippi

Lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe
Aquarium of the Americas

Petting the baby shark
On Wednesday Normand and I had to go to New Orleans to get passports for our trip to the Bahamas. (7 days to departure) So we took the three little kid with us for a day of fun. After our appointment at the Passport office we took a short walk on the moonwalk to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. Aimee and Joanna had delicious mac and cheese, Jake had a cheeseburger and fries and Normand and I had absolutely scrumptious veggie burgers topped with grilled squash and cheese. Deliteful.

After lunch we walked back to the IMAX theatre to see the 3D film Wild Ocean about the sealife off the Wild Coast of South Africa. I must admit that I was tired and dozed a couple of times during the movie. Next we went next door to the Aquarium. The kids had never been. Aimee Jake and Jo had a great time. They got to pet stingrays and a baby shark.

On the way home we stopped at Cabelas in Baton Rouge and checked it out. All in all a fun and tiring day.
