Let the good times roll!
Mardi Gras fell right in the middle of Valentine's this year. It is early which means a colder Mardi Gras and parade time.
We celebrated here in Raleigh with our own little RaleighRex Parade! Yes, we did.
So many New Orleans memories - mainly, the ones with my beautiful family and good food. Not so much the crazy side of Carnival. So we introduced the boys to or Carolina Carnival "Books not Booze." ;). That's the way we roll.
The Tigers were thrilled. They caught my precious Mother's genes and Boulder Mountain Man's - they loved the books and thought think Mardi Gras itself is weird! Thank heavens. They did oblige me and enjoy or festivities. ;)
All the best to you. Onward to Easter. Well, we have some very exciting Birthdays after Valentine's and then St. Patrick's Day, them Easter. Love this time of year.
