During Rachel's visit, one of her friends, Araña, also flew in to Louisiana to visit and tour Louisiana for the first time. While they were both here, I felt like it was my duty to give him the full Louisiana experience. We started his visit off my picking him up from the airport in New Orleans. That day we parked in the Garden District at a friend's house and took the street car down Saint Charles and into the French Quarter. While walking the French Quarter we stumbled upon a small gallery with art work from Dr. Suess. We also caught all of our very first New Orleans parade, Muses, and I even caught a shoe! We made one more New Orleans trip the next week to drop Araña off at the airport. On our second visit, we visited more galleries on Royal Street, caught some amusing sights on Bourbon Street, stumbled upon a firework show, and saw a shooting star on the ride home.
During the rest of their stay in Lafayette, we went to Vermillionville, ate crawfish, a lot of king cake (we made sure Arana got the baby), and poyboys, cooked gumbo, visited the Horse Farm during the Farmer's Market, danced for beads at parades, and generally had a fun time with friends making the most of Lafayette, Louisiana.
