Mardi Gras

Wow! We had a great time at our first Mardi Gras in New Orleans! We went to 2 parades - Endymion & Bacchus. They were fabulous! And I even finally understood why we had to have a ladder and that as crazy as it sounds - it's actually pretty cool to put your kids up in a box on top of a ladder along the sidewalk! The kids, while yawning - kept saying - "Get me something cool Mommy!" And "Throw me somethin' Mista!" I'm actually looking forward to next year!

Here are just a few of the fun things that we got to see:

JP with just a little bit of his loot!

Jordan & JP reaching for beads!

A really fun tree @ Bacchus!

Getting ready for the parade... see all the ladders?

Parade is over - on the way home. Thankful for the wheels!
