HAPPY 16TH ANNIVERSARY: JANUARY 7, 2016

It has been at least 8 years since Jake and I went on a vacation that was just us two. It will be our 16th anniversary this January 7, so our families watched our kiddos during Christmas break while we had an early anniversary celebration.

Audubon Park is adjacent to the zoo. It had been raining for 2 days almost non-stop. The walk through the park, the vegetation was lush and green.

A little sandwich café near Audubon Park. This was the best pea soup I've ever had. The sandwich had the perfect mixture: soft French bread, condiments and meat. The bean salad to the right was also delicious. Tartine also had reasonable priced menu items.

Jake had his first Gumbo here and it was delicious. The bake potato was surprisingly spicy and needed plenty of sour cream.
