When I was in New Orleans, I had some time to hang out with Claire's family...more specifically, I got to spend a lot of time with Claire's Pam and their mom. We had such a great time! I love hanging out with her family and the time I spent with them on this trip was no different.
We started with a great day going downtown. We ate lunch at Mother's (it was good, but WAY overpriced!)
We toured around the city, tried a pineapple mojito (really good) and then went to the Insectarium. Now, I am not a fan of bugs. Really don't like them much. Spiders in particular are, well, difficult for me. But I pushed through, learning all about the creepy crawly things that populate the world.
To add a topper to this afternoon, we had the opportunity to enact a little revenge on the insects. It was time to eat them.
The Insectarium provided a place for us to taste a number of different kinds and flavors. We actually enjoyed it and I even bought some bugs to take home for Claire to sample.
