Friday, Jon had to go into work and so David, Madeline and I had a lazy morning at Jon's house. At lunch time we met Jon downtown. Madeline loves to visit her papa at work and so she thought it was pretty darn cool to visit Uncle Jon at his work. The ladies in Jon's office had followed our adoption story while we were in Russia and they were thrilled to finally meet Madeline. Madeline was spoiled with candies from their candy jars and so she was in her glory. We went to lunch at Dickie Brennan's Palace Cafe, which is located just around the corner from Jon's office. I tried turtle soup and it was delicious! The remainder of Friday was low-key. I cooked up a home-cooked breaded pork chop meal for the guys and we enjoyed hanging out and visiting.

Our time here in New Orleans is winding down. It is sad because we are really enjoying ourselves. David heads home tomorrow evening and Madeline and I come home on Tuesday. We will try to fit in as much fun as we can while we are still here and I will certainly keep you posted.
