No we didn’t.
Well, you have to save something for your next trip to the gulf coast! New Orleans used to be a fun place to go and they had some cool kids attractions like the haunted New Orleans tour but it isn't somewhere I would go these days unless I enjoyed being a target :(

It is a lot of fun although fall is a better time for being out on the open gulf for the day if you can make the time schedule fit.

I miss February in Mississippi because it is the dreariest month in IL and I miss fresh seafood all year around. There was a cool little bar at the commercial harbor where you could sit and watch the big ships come in to the cargo docks and the smaller commercial fishing ships pulling into their protected harbor. It was a great place to relax when you had the time.

I bet that your son would enjoy Honey Island swamp tours which is just across the Pearl River on the Louisiana side before you get to Slidell. My daughter and my nephew Blake had a great time there and you don't have to go anywhere near the city if you don't want to. Plenty of wildlife including alligators and tour is via a relaxing boat ride!

The volunteer fire department held a water competition as part of the village corn festival and following that event they held a separate competition for the kids. The cool mist from the overspray felt great on a very hot and humid afternoon. Shot with Canon 1DX III and EF 70-200 f2.8 glass.

This guy was guarding the humming bird feeder and not letting any others get any food. Fun to watch them fight each other

Wow! Haven't seen that for years. Here's a shot I took of our local fire department doing the same thing away back in 1974...check out the vehicles in the background!

Very cool vintage photo!

I hope the barrel never fell on anyone. During the event last Sunday, the target broke loose from the line but fortunately didn't hit any of the participants.
