Mardi Gras 2013

Apparently kindergarteners who live in the state of Louisiana make mini Mardi Gras floats this time of  year... 
Well, Charlie and I certainly had fun with a hot glue gun [and several blister burns later].
Here's his finished product! 

I also had a 'first' this Mardi Gras season..
I got to ride in my first Mardi Gras parade!
My cousin, Stephanie and I climbed on board our float and loaded all of our "throws"...
Now all I needed was my "costume and mask".... 
ohhh what a fun night that turned out to be!
I would LOVE to do this again! 
My man, Charlie, also got to ride in a Mardi Gras parade of his own.
His Kindergarten does one every year in our little town and the streets shut down and people gather on the roadside while the 6 year olds pummel beads and such at innocent bystanders.
I walked alongside to make sure no one fell off the trailer..

And the Gilmores are off to Destin for Mardi Gras break!
Happy Mardi Gras ya'll!
