On my last Friday off, we were all set to go to the sculpture garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art. When we arrived at City Park (where the museum is located), we were met by a police officer and told we couldn’t enter. It was Voodoo Fest and the park was jammed with festival-goers. Rather than try to park on the street and fight the crowds, we decided to just bag it and go to another park. Amanda had heard of one near the lake, so we thought we’d give it a try. The weather has gotten a little chilly here of late and it was even colder and windier at the lakefront, but we managed to get in a few hours of play time with the kids.
