happy sunday ya'll!!! we are in the thick of more fun!!!! if ya'll don't know about mardi gras,,,,well lets put it this way,,,there's no event in the world which brings such a diverse group of people together,,,mardi gras brings the old, the young, the rich the poor,, all religions, races, republican, democrat or other,,,,,all these people get together on the streets and party as one big happy family...its a family event,, ya get to dress in costume....the parades throw you more stuff then you can carry!,,,,,,,so come on down,,we got a ticket 4 you!
This is the first time I've heard Mardi Gras descibed as a family event. I still haven't done it, but the reputation among outsiders is that it's more about beads and boobies than a family oriented event. I consider myself educated!
we make it a point to invite friends that have young kids each and every year to come and stay with us, so that they can experience it,,,,
i can only imagine what it would be like for a kid who's still at the age of believing in santa to see a mardi gras parade....
i know this,,,after a family was here a few years ago,,,a family that has done alot of cool/great things like jc/bc,,,thanks us for the greatest week of there life,,,,guessing seeing the joy of the little one,,shouing "HAPPY MARDI GRAS" sealed the deal,,,,,,still after hearing many great sounds in my life,,,,those words shouted by that special kid warm my heart just thinking about it!
