After another trip to get a good breakfast from the Embassy breakfast bar, we decided we have to do just one more thing before we left New Orleans. We thought it would give the Insectarium a try. Bugs may make me shiver, but they are right up the boys alley.
I am going to tell you that the museum wasn't so bad. Once I made it past this...
Little Guy was stoked when he saw this sign that said "cooking show". He didn't even care that they were cooking with bugs. He wanted to get there early and was the first person to volunteer to try all the foods they had out.
If I lived in New Orleans and had a pass to all the museums, I think that I would go to the Insectarium on a regular basis for their butterfly garden. I could have sat in there with a book for hours. It was so relaxing. Although I must admit that part of me wanted to open all the windows and let those butterflies go up into the sky the way they were intended.
Once we were through enjoying the Insectarium, we had just one more stop to make. We had promised the boys a stop at Cafe Du Monde before we left New Orleans and we were going to make sure that we kept that promise.
Perhaps eating these delicious, powdered sugary beignets in the car weren't the best idea. But we all enjoyed them so much it was worth the clean up!
