The Big Easy with Izzy

Izzy and I went along on Ryan's work trip to New Orleans. We took Charlie to Seattle when he was close to the same age. It is an easy travel age with minimal gear requirements and they can sleep about anywhere and anytime.


Izzy liked our bed better than the hotel crib.








We found several good places to eat including Lola's where the specialty was paella. Yum.


Getting artistic with the sangria.


The waitresses at Lola's wanted to take Izzy home. But we didn't let them.




Of course we had to have oysters in the French Quarter. We only let Izzy have a few.




Ryan's first beignet!


The powdered sugar gets everywhere...


Izzy and I hung out along the Riverwalk one afternoon while Ryan was at his conference. The weather was beautiful the whole weekend. The river was really high.


Two ladies in the park...


Izzy really got into the spirit of the Big Easy.


Dining alfresco. Izzy usually fell asleep in her car seat while we ate. Such a good baby!


We ate at the popular Butcher and Izzy wanted to see what all the fuss was about. A gorgeous night to sit outside.

A sign hanging next to Butcher advertising all the New Orleans essentials.


The place was called Butcher so we had to have the choucouterie plate.


Saturday night we dined at a tapas place over in the Garden District.


We had a great trip and it was relaxing and fun to hang out with baby Izzy. She proved to be a good traveler which is good because in the next month she will head to Omaha, Denver and D.C. She will be a seasoned traveler for sure.
