Mardi Gras 2010 - Part 3

After waiting for the incredible snow that passed through Georgia earlier in the week to melt a bit, Papa-T, Nana, Liam and Pete finally made it to NOLA late Saturday night, just in time for my favorite day of parades, Thoth Sunday. Luz was so excited to have her cousins in town for Mardi Gras and couldn't wait to show them the ropes. I think the whole experience was a little overwhelming for the boys. It is hard to imagine Bacchus night through the eyes of a 4 year old and 2.5 year old who have no real understanding of what MG is all about. Needless to say, they were total troopers and, with a little big of conditioning from Luz and Uncle Chris, I think they will be ready for some more parading in the next few years.

More than anything though, I think it was great that the cousins had the opportunity to play together. They appreciated that time more than any parades.

The boys are still talking about Mardi Gras. They had a super time.Liam brought king cake and beads to school and it was shared by both classes. The other class did a Thank you card with all the handprints of the class and thanking him for sharing MG 2010 with them and thinking of them. It was so cute. Yesterday Papa T & I went to Sues for Papa's haircut adn then we went for dinner. Liam and Pete wanted to ride in our car and they kept asking if we were going to Uncle Chris's for MG? We said no it was too long of a ride today and MG is over for this year. It was too cute. LOL
Nana--miss you all
