We attended our first Mardi Gras parade of the season this past weekend. The girls had a blast. This was Jules’ first Mardi Gras parade ever! Last year the weather was yucky, so we all stayed inside.
We picked up some fast supper, then headed to meet our friends on the parade route.
When the parade finally came, it was getting dark outside. For some reason my camera would not take a clear picture. I think it was because of all the movement, lights, etc. There were cop lights, strobe lights, spotlights, and my poor camera just wouldn’t focus.
Anyways, Seth held Kennedy for every float, and Mommy held Jules for every float. I think I need a back replacement after that night – Sista is heavy!
This parade was not nearly as big as the New Orleans parades; however, it is the perfect size for families with young kids. It was good clean fun, and the kids were able to experience the local Mardi Gras tradition. I would say they were successful :)
