For dinner we went to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. We had a few drinks and the food was great. We all had seafood. Our server was a little weird. She kept asking my dad if he would adopt her. Not sure what was going on there.
I couldn't leave town without having a Hurricane!
On the walk over toCafe du Monde, there was a mini parade going through Jackson Park. We followed it until it stopped, only to find out that it was a fake Mardis Gras parade for some picture that was being filmed. There was a sign that said it was "tentatively entitled Mardis Gras" and by standing in that street we were agreeing to be extras in the film. Ha! Keep your eye out for the film. No idea how big it is, or even who the actors might be, but you might see my family and I in the background! There was this creepy Joker guy that was following the people who were watching the parade. He even flicked my dad off with his giant gloved hands when he took a picture.
We took a couple minutes to grab beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde. Delicious sugary, doughy goodness. My dad thought it would be a good idea to blow the powdered sugar across the table. We were all already covered in it.
After dessert we started the trip back to Texas. We had a great time in just a few short hours. Thankfully, Ariel drove home, so I was able to nap for a little while. We stopped to drop off Ariel, which is why it took us longer than expected to get back to my house. I didn't lay down for my "pre-work nap" until 4 in the morning! It's going to take me a few days to recover from that. But hooray for family!
