The Sun Also Rises....

.....in New Orleans, as it does in every city we visit.  And lucky for us we were staying at a hotel with a great view so we could appreciate it when Joseph predictably woke us up at the crack of dawn every day.  The Westin at Canal Place is situated right on the Mississippi River.  Their rooftop pool deck was the place to be to see a pretty amazing sunset and sunrise.




Our room didn't face the river, but even from way up high on the 29th floor it was easy to spot the arrival of Mimi and Poppy in their big ole yellow banana truck.


They stayed with us and watched Joseph for a day while we were at lectures, and then (*gasp*) they took him to Houma for the night.  Yes, for the 1st time in 5 years and 3 months I let Joseph out of my sight for a night.  I can finally check that one off the New Year's resolution list.  Any apprehension I had was quickly relieved just knowing we'd get to sleep in past sunrise!
