Mardi Gras!

Ever since we left New Orleans, we have always planned on going back to visit during Mardi Gras. But with Maisy being so little, we felt 8 hours in the car might be too long. So instead, we took a 3 hour road trip to Shreveport.

 Jeff's manager graciously opened his home to the Dallas district team members for a crawfish boil.
Check out Maisy and Afton's faces- they were so scared of the crawfish in Jeff's hand.

If you ask Afton, one of the best parts of the trip was the hammock. Ha! Both girls loved being rocked.


After we ate lunch and polished off a king cake, we headed down to the parade route. We situated ourselves near the end of the route and played until it reached us. There were 7 kiddos in our group, so lots of action!

 Afton is a huge fan of Mardi Gras. What girl wouldn't like to go to a parade where they throw out free jewelry?!

Maisy had a lot of fun too. She watched all the commotion, ate crackers and danced.

Both girls were happy the entire night. They left with a ton of loot. So Afton took beads to school for all her teachers and classmates. Of course the rest she is keeping for dress-up :)

Let the good times roll!
