The Wimberleys' Magnets

New Orleans

On one of our trips to see family near New Orleans, we took our nephews to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. Their gift shop had thousands of items, but only a small handful of magnet designs that actually indicated where we were. Katie liked this one the best.

As we were making our way home, Katie went to the bathroom in the New Orleans Airport and returned with the other magnet. It reminded her of Café du Monde. I personally think the beignets depicted on the magnet look more like Shredded Wheat biscuits, but I guess they did what they could to make them look like fried balls of dough dusted with powdered sugar. And how am I supposed to hold that giant cup of coffee with that tiny handle?
