Mardi Gras!

Mardi Gras is coming and I am so excited! This is going to be the first one ever and we're taking the boys to as many daytime parades as possible. We're going to avoid anything after dark because it just gets too "adult" for our taste. How fun will this be!!! I'm telling you, this city knows how to party! People actually decorate their houses here for Mardi Gras just like everyone else does for Christmas.
