We got to sleep in a little bit in the morning, but then we hit the ground running. Rarely are we able to work on Sundays because everyone we are working for is taking the day off so it was a fun day for us.
We started our day with worship at FBC New Orleans. When you visit a church and think, “If I lived here this is definitely where I would go,” I think it means they are doing something right. We heard a great sermon out of James 4 by their pastor David Crosby (who is the dad of one of our Camp Collide co-directors Josh Crosby!)
The girls had command of the Battle of the Sexes and they chose to play the Urban Spoon game for lunch so after church we drove out to Slidell, Louisiana and ate lunch at Ky’s Bicycle Shop. Ky’s is a diner-type restaurant that has bikes hanging from the ceiling. The setting was kind of cool. After lunch we went on the Swamp Tour down the Pearl River. We saw a lot of smaller alligators (8 were around our boat at one time) and a lot of beautiful scenery.
After dinner we drove back to the French Quarter and had dinner at Cafe Maspero. Steve and Carol Hickerson were on vacation in New Orleans so they met us and bought dinner for the entire team! After dinner we shopped in the French Quarter and had dessert at Cafe Du Monde. We finished our day with a share time and then went to bed.
