Instead, they made plans to go late Tuesday when I got out of meetings. Well, the problem with being a teacher during the summer is that I tend to read "fluff" stuff only.

That would translate into I didn't read the information giving the times at which the summit ended. Let's just say no one went to the Insectarium.
We have now returned from our trip, and let me tell you, the kids and grownups both are exhausted. We walked from the hotel to Bourbon Street so the kids could get a look around the city, ate dinner at Hard Rock Cafe (their favorite) and enjoyed ice cream on the stroll back.
Yesterday I went off to the conference while Rich and the kids went to Cafe du Monde for breakfast, took a streetcar ride to the zoo and enjoyed petting a roach while there. Then back downtown for the Aquarium where they petted a stingray and a baby shark. We always appreciate it when the kids can get their hands dirty.
See you tomorrow for the announcement and a surprise!
