Mardi Gras Mambo...down in New Orleans.

The timing could not be more perfect...Mimi bought a condo!  That's New Orleans, right on St. Charles Avenue.  Which meant we spent Mardi Gras in style this year.  The kids loved it.   Lucky for them all the Saturday parades were rained out, so they rolled Sunday with all the others, which meant a day of nothing but parades for the kiddos.  And that day couldn't have been better.

The tikes loved the new condo and loved having a big sleepover.

On her balcony with her amazing view.  As you can tell, we paraded on the Neutral Ground side.

A fund day with friends.

Taking a brake between parades.

And Margot is a mardi gras pro!

She sat in her ladder with her arms in the air and screamed, "HEY!"

The clouds rolled our mid-morning and turned into a gorgeous day!

Meredith was amazed by all things Mardi Gras, especially the marching bands.  She had been before, but she didn't remember any of it.

After spending Mardi Gras at Mimi's condo, it will be hard to ever spend it any other way.  Thank goodness we are family and she can't get rid of us.  

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
