Have you ever seen such a beautiful Queen?
Yep, that’s right, Mardi Gras is already in full swing here in Cajun Country and my living room is littered with the cheap, colorful beads and other
crap “throws” to prove it. When we move from here someday, parades will NEVER be the same for my kids. EVER.
Last Saturday the festivities began with the Krewe de Chiens parade. For those of you who do not know Cajun French, that means the dog parade. I didn’t want to miss this one because the kids love it but I only took the boys since it was right in the middle of K’s nap and a bit chilly, even for us.
It was a lot of fun and it’s always so cute to see the dogs all decked out and riding in style.
Here’s a few more snaps to prove were were there…
We also went to the Krewe of Carnivale en Rio parade that evening in 40 degree temps (with a wind chill in the 30′s) which is cold for us Southerners. We watched a movie in the van for a bit, waiting for the floats to show up and I only took a couple of pics with my phone. It was cold and late and K was shivering by the end of it all but we still had fun. Awww, the Mardi Gras memories…
