We did go through Houston which was big and shiny.
We stayed in New Orleans. Note, if you're driving across the country with pets and want to stay in a semi cheap hotel that doesn't have crazy pet deposits/rules, La Quinta Inns are the bessssst! The one in New Orleans was reasonable, super nice and kind of posh. Like my mom would stay there it's so dang clean and modern.
We stayed near the French Quarter where we hung out the night we got in. It was alright, I'm not huge on crowds of drunk people though so we kind of called it an early night. It was nice being able to carry cups of booze around in the streets though!
The trip is almost over I swear. From TN we went to visit Andrew's sister in Lexington, Kentucky. I love Kentucky and have spent a lot of time in Louisville but never Lexington. We had a good couple of days off from driving, hiking with his nephew and taking pictures of things like this MANOWAR street sign!! They're one of my favorite bands so that sign made me pretty happy.
Thanks for reading and thanks to Beca for letting me share so many photos! If you want to see more, you can view the whole set on my Flickr ... Beca, I hope you, Doug and the doggies have a safe and fun trip!! Can't wait to be on the same coast as y'all.
