We just returned from a road trip from Phoenix to Atlanta and boy was that a lot of driving! We are currently looking for a place to settle down for a bit and so set out on a little stateside exploration. In Texas the girls did a little cotton pickin'.
I just think back to the days of hand picking cotton and think that huge piles of cotton like this would not have been left behind.
We stopped into New Orleans for some yummy beignets for breakfast. This is my youngests newest word and fixation. She's decided that her next birthday cake will be a tower of beignets and cotton candy. This I'm sure is a rebellion against my idea of a healthy birthday cake. It was raining and temps near freezing- brrr. We did not do any strolling through the streets but rather ran in and out for breakfast. The week before the temps were in the 70's- darn.
Right now things are looking like we may be trying out the south for a bit. I have never lived in the south and it is its whole own culture with lots to explore. So what are your thoughts? Any southerners out there that have any input?
