#721 New Orleans with the Napiers.

Jesse’s basketball team played an exhibition game at the Hornets arena today and we made a little daytrip of it along with Jim. We started with lunch at Parkway Bakery & Tavern that’s becoming increasingly famous for their amazing po’ boys. They ain’t kidding.

Then we were on to the arena to meet up with Ben’s family:

He made 2 free throws after a foul and scored several other points:

But sadly, they lost in a nailbiter. We’ll get em next year! Jared was just psyched to see the Benz emblem on the Superdome.

Then we headed to the French Quarter for beignets at Cafe Du Monde!

 

What a nice baby doll in the street! Ha… we had to force Jared to pretend to pick it up for this.

Then we got in free to the Hornets’ pre-season game at 7:00. At halftime, we left early for the long drive home.

Definitely one of my best New Orleans experiences. There was no rain or grossness!
