During Memaw and Popaw’s visit in April, we made our first trip to the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans!
Afton was really into flamingoes (“‘mingoes”) at the time, so it was pretty neat that we saw those right away!
But I think the giraffes turned out to be her favorite.
I was partial to the acrobatics of this little monkey.
But of course, there was SO MUCH to see!
This place is huge! We definitely have to go back to really take it all in.
After the zoo, we followed a local’s recommendation to Imperial Woodpecker Sno-balls for a little treat. We had to wait a pretty long time for our sno-balls, but they were definitely tasty!
We thought we weren’t going to be hungry enough for dinner before leaving town, but we waited so long for our sno-balls that we got hungry for some real food. (Which was really ideal since leaving New Orleans without eating a restaurant meal would really be a crying shame, am I right?!) I was excited to check out a seafood place we hadn’t been before, and I was definitely not disappointed by Seaworthy.
The food was delicious, and it was so peaceful outside in the courtyard. We had a great time at dinner! And the sno-balls didn’t stop us from ordering dessert. ;)
Afton’s favorite thing (still) about New Orleans is seeing the “trolleys” like the one Daniel Tiger rides in his neighborhood. Such a perfect way to say “Goodbye, NOLA!”
It wasn’t long before our next visit, though… stay tuned! :)
