Along the way, they see the sites, hear the sounds and enjoy all the great things The Big Easy has to offer. Most importantly, they spend quality time TOGETHER!

“I enjoyed reading your book because I could read most of it by myself! It inspired me to have a day without a cell phone with my Dad. I just love your book. And the pictures are cool, too!”
