Happy Mardi Gras!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!  Happy Mardi Gras Day!

We took a little road trip and decided to take in a small town Mardi Gras parade.  That's just our speed now that we have little ones!  

The parade kicked off with bagpipers playing "When the Saints go Marching In."  Saints fever was definitely in the air!

Of course, there was Mardi Gras royalty

And, Big Daddy gave Sister the best seat in the house :)

Sister and Bitty Baby have very different personalities.  Sister is all about a party.  Bitty Baby ... well, let's just say a picture's worth a thousand words :)

The theme this year was "Romantic Legends"  So we saw Aladdin

And, Romeo and Juliet

And Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - who threw apples, of course :)

And then the themes kind of went to the wayside ... like the giant chicken powered by a go cart motor.  Only at Mardi Gras!


The chicken's name was really cute with the reference to Mamou

About half way through the parade ... the theme definitely went to the wayside and it became about one thing ...



This was Big Daddy's favorite ... he loved the sign

Sister caught some major loot at the parade.  In fact, she had on so many beads, that a newspaper photographer took her photo ... so we'll see if she made the paper tomorrow!

What a great Mardi Gras Day!
