So we said we were just going on an adventure. It's funny, we got lots of surprises on our adventure, namely a major car repair! We never made it to Mississippi either since we needed to go home via Lake Charles to pick up the car.
We first changed up our trip by going to Louisiana via Houston. We went to MD Anderson hospital to see some friends of ours who were there with their daughter who was having cancer surgery. We were glad we took that detour! On the way we noticed our gas gauge was not working. So we just figured we would make sure we filled up every 200 miles.
Then the next day in Lake Charles, LA, our car started acting up and thankfully, we had just passed a Chevrolet dealership. We limped in and handed it over to them, and they drove us to the car rental place. We wanted to use our points for a free car rental, but they wouldn't let us do that unless we gave a 24 hour notice. So my quick thinking husband told them we would pay for one day, then also made a reservation for 24 hours later for a free rental for the rest of the week.
Have you ever had a fried avocado stuffed with seafood? It was the best!!!
We also spent a day in New Orleans - it was my first time ever. We walked around, ate some good cajun food, and rode a streetcar just to view the southern homes and live oak trees. Finally we stopped at the art museum and walked through their sculpture garden.

Love the Live Oak trees down south!
