First Mardi Gras Parade of the Year

Saturday, February 11, 2012

What fun we had!

It was Angie, Leandro & Alesandra's first Mardi Gras. It is SO fun to see their faces light up and how excited they are when they catch beads, frisbees, stuffed animals, and all the other goodies thrown at parades.

Our dear friends, Randie & Vernon

Michelle & her grandson, Randen

Alesandra caught a purple, green and gold (Mardi Gras colors) boa!

PepperLeah's catch of the night... HUGE beads!

Melanie, Diamon & Sondra enjoying the ride home

Sondra wore herself slap out

    I have seen some of the parades on TV = the closest I have gotten to the Mardi Gras. It looks like fun. Pepperleah looks like she is having a lot of fun. Her prize the huge beads = paid off in waiting for them. Oh yeah y'all had fun. [I had forgotten the y'all].

    Wore the kids out. When my older sister was alive and living in Baton Rouge, she and her husband went to Mardi Gras regularly and loved it every time. i knew from hearing them describe it that I would, too, but haven't had the chance yet. maybe if I win the lottery. Thanks for the pictures. -- Lou
