Return to Photoville in Brooklyn.
We returned home yesterday after our visit to New Orleans. It was a fun trip and especially nice for Henry to meet family members he hadn’t yet and to spend time with everyone in his ancestral home. Thanks to all who hosted and helped us celebrate. Here are more photos:

Jacqui’s first Saints game is a nail-biting 23-17 victory over Atlanta.

P.S. Uncle Mickey taught Henry a few chords:
Henry’s feeling much better and has made a full recovery from his illness earlier in the week. Yesterday he even attended his swimming class. Yesterday was also our third wedding anniversary (first one as parents, of course), so we treated ourselves to a rare night out and splurged on dinner. Our friend, Mimi filled in on short notice as a sitter for Henry and she later reported that he was pretty well behaved. Thanks again, Mimi.
