Throw Me Something Mister!

About 20 years ago or so, Mardi Gras finally made it up to North Louisiana. And in the years that have passed since then, it has grown larger and more elaborate. Today is "Fat Tuesday", but the parades and festivities have been going on for a few weeks now. On Saturday evening, with cousins in town, my girls and their husbands decided to experience the madness one more time. Here they are as they arrived at the parade route (which by the way, completely encloses my neighborhood making it impossible to get in or out for hours). And once, they arrived, they found themselves right next to one of our very favorite families, the Parkers! Their children and grandchildren were in town for Norm's birthday, so they all had a great time catching beads and playing together. Here's a photo of my "krewe" after collecting the goodies.
