Happy Mardi Gras 2013!

Not many pictures because we were having so much fun watching the boys seriously enjoy them some Mardi Gras this year. Justin was dancing with the bands and yelling at the floats if they weren't throwing beads fast enough- HILARIOUS!

We've already said we better experience Mardi Gras New Orleans-style with them this next year, they'll really go nuts! I remember as a kid, we'd go visit and stay with our family and have THE best time at all of the parades and now that our family there all has children, we can carry on the tradition!

So it was yucky weather here in Galveston- no rain just muggy and windy on the water but still a fun, memorable time :-) we usually make a day of it on the first weekend but we had too many things going on last weekend to make it work. So we made up for it this past weekend since there's never been a year we've missed the good times entirely!!!


It's a little scary knowing some crazy things happened in both Galveston and NOLA this year but we make sure we're extra safe and stay away from the areas where the partying is a little too hard and wild and that goes for the Strand in Tx and French Quarter in LA. Not a place for kids or paranoid people like myself that think anywhere there are crowds, a riot is not far away...I know, I know-I watch WAY too much 20/20 and Dateline!
