I think they had a great time. They left on Sunday morning (quite “stuffed” and “overserved”) with a greater appreciation of our city that we love.

Our visit with Indianans, y’all!


  1. Oh-It looks like they had a ball. Now-what day did you say I was supposed to come for MY tour?;>)

  2. Sounds lovely Ron! I still have not visited New Orleans yet but it is on my list. Hope you are enjoying your summer!

  3. Gosh, what a treat for J's family!!!! I've never been to New Orleans but if I ever go, I'm hooking up with y'all. Y'all know how to do it up right! You guys are lucky to live in such a fun city.

  4. Looks like you and J rolled out the red carpet for his mom and sister! Of course, I wouldn't expect anything different from you two! :)

  5. Hi Ron, My best friend and I went to the Commander's Palace last year when we were in New Orleans and loved it! Thanks for your sweet blog!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
