The poor man's Bar Trip

So after I finished the bar exam in July, I wanted to go on a Bar Trip. Most of my friends went to fancy places like Europe, Australia, or on a cruise. Since I have no job, I couldn't afford a fancy trip so my mom and I took a 3 day trip to Baton Rouge, LA. The first night we had a free hotel room at one of the casinos and the other 2 nights, we stayed at the Springhill Suites. We definitely travel in style :)

We toured the new Capitol building and the old Capitol building. We also went to several of the Plantation homes in the area. I love the homes and the history. We also ate lots of yummy cajun food. I think this might be my second favorite type of food with mexican being the first.

 We also drove through LSU. I would have 
loved to go to this college.

A little family time on a boat...

My brother's birthday is at the end of July so after I took the bar exam, we got to celebrate. He wanted to go see the Titanic exhibit at the Museum of Natural Science. It was a really nice exhibit with lots of things from the sunken ship. We decided to get a family picture taken on the steps of the dining room to the Titanic. My parents and brother paid for a picture. I used my iPhone to take a picture of the picture because I'm cheap. We finished off the afternoon with some yummy Mexican food. I love mexican food.
