Back from New Orleans

Leah and I at the Krewe du Vieux Mardi Gras parade on Feb 19th.

We made it back from our trip to New Orleans. Not a bad trip but not as enjoyable as previous outings where we've mixed business with getting away from it all.  I'll post a few pictures and perhaps even a few thoughts on the crap-hole that is New Orleans if I ever manage to shake this sinus infection thing I have going on.

The UGM Cam is now offline

The Sheraton New Orleans Grand Couteau room is no longer the UGM Computer room and thus the UGM Webcam is now offline. 
Time to go watch a parade.

Having lunch with the boy. Like a boss.

My wife is, like almost every woman you ever talk to, watching what she eats.  Our meals are delicious but healthy.  That's fine most of the time however I can't deal with it every day.  Sometimes you just have to eat like a red blooded, sports-loving American male.  Chicken wings.  And lots of them.  Pizza.  And lots of it.

Anyway, I'm spending the day at home with Holden today instead of going to work.  We decided to bypass the steamed broccoli and chicken breasts that have taken over the house in favor of this giant bag of deliciousness.

The Daddy/Holden lunch for today: Cheeseburger on a grilled glazed donut.
Prep.  Busted out the Food Network table top grill for the occasion since the wind chill outside is currently -16 degrees which doesn't lend itself to firing up the grill on the deck.
The final product.  I'm a little pissed that I forgot to make bacon to put on it and didn't want to take the time to cook bacon once everything else was ready and I finally realized that everything is better with bacon.  Mental note for next time has been made.

Snowy Wrigley Field

Pitchers and catchers report in less than two weeks but this is what Wrigley Field currently looks like. Wow.
