Baton Rouge Visit (2016)
After our Texas visits and driving from Huntsville, TX to Baton Rouge, LA, we enjoyed spending time with Rob’s family (his cousin and her husband and their 8 kids).

We all piled around the table for a New Years Day meal at one of our favorite cajun restaurants, Chimes! That always makes the folks that don’t get cajun food that often very, very happy.

And of course before heading home we got all the 2nd cousins together for a group pic.

We had never been inside the St. Louis Cathedral before and it’s just as beautiful.

We asked where to get po-boys for less than an arm and leg and we ended up at Court Tavern Po-Boys

After that we walked around some more and wanted to cleanse our palette with some beignets.

We ended up getting beignets at Cafe Beignet. Cafe Dumonde had a mile long line that we weren’t going to stand in, so we found this place and it probably turned out better because they have live jazz!
