This past weekend we had lots of fun celebrating Mardi Gras.  There were parades here all weekend, but we only managed to get to the one on Sunday.  I’ve been fighting a cold, so we decided to skip the one on Saturday since the weather wasn’t that great, and the Friday night one is too late for Little Miss.

But Sunday we were ready to roll!

Little Miss and her Daddy got in the spirit of things early.  We headed out to the beach to enjoy breakfast with friends.

Mardi Gras is great because everyone is in a wonderful mood and ready to have fun.  Little Miss was so ready for the parade to start! 


After lunch, we headed to the parade.  Little Miss actually ended up choosing a place near a grassy area where a lot of other children were running around.  She watched the parade a little, but mostly she had fun playing!  We collected a bunch of beads, a few moon pies, and overall had a great time! 

Today I’m recovering from my cold that came back with full force after spending the day in the wind and the cold.  I’m hoping to be able to share a great Mardi Gras recipe with you tonight or tomorrow though!

  1. Happy Mardi GRAS!!!!!!!

    We have been pondering Lent in our family, and what we will be giving up for the next 40 days. The children have chosen sugar. I have a few more hours to decide. Last year I gave up alcohol, damn near killed me, but I certainly became closer to God. This year I am considering going a little easier on myself…..

  2. Happy Mardi Gras. It’s great to see that you people had loads of fun together. The pictures are telling how much fun you had.
