After an entire night on the bus... we stopped at 7 in the morning to get a McDonalds breakfast. :) Then it was on the road until about 10:00 am. At about 10:30 am we finally reached New Orleans!!!!!
They were pretty excited, we were finally there! :)
River Walk - A very popular place, we went there about 3 or 4 times on the trip.
After we got all of our luggage to the hotel safely, we did some site-seeing at River Walk and also had lunch there. We couldn't get into our hotel rooms until about 1:30 pm. As soon as everyone met together after lunch, we made our way to the convention center to register for the week.
Once we registered, we all walked back to the hotel. Some of our friends got their hotel rooms at about 2:00. Unfortunately there were many of us waiting for 4 or 5 hours for our hotel room. It was not good! We've been on a bus for 26 hours, we haven't showered since we left, and we're exhausted and tired - Please just get us a room!!
We were so tired of waiting, and really needed to get a room. :(
So finally at about 4:30 we got our room, and made our way to the 14th floor! It was such a great room and it had a balcony too!
A drawer in the hotel that was full of our snacks! :) We brought a lot.
We all showered, got ready, and then walked around the hotel a bit. At about 6:00 we all met in the lobby to leave for the first conference that night!
Lots of people (including us) making their way to the convention center!
Everything is NEW! :)
The conference started out amazing, and we couldn't wait for this trip to really begin!
