Like I said last week about our trip to New Orleans, it’s a fun family tradition. My parents have been coming here every year for over 30 years with their best friends. Every time they do the same thing: eat and antique shop. They stay at different hotels, and their restaurants vary but one thing remains: Friday lunch at Galotoires. It’s quite the experience if you haven’t been. There’s only one seating time: 11:30 and you have to get a “line sitter” to stand in line for you starting at 7:30 am. Everyone comes in their southern best, and it gets rowdy in there! It was fun during “happy birthday” for the entire restaurant to erupt in song. I love celebrating my dad. I love being with my family. I love being a part of their tradition, and I hope that me and Stephen have traditions like this one that last over 3 decades. There’s so much to be said about having friendships that last, and friendships that include travel and fun adventures! I was proud to be a part of my dads big 6oth!!
