E and her friend Beau, enjoying the view from their ladder before the parades start.
I love me some Mardi Gras. We did every parade this weekend, with the exception of Endymion. I'm so glad that Endymion has gone back to its Mid-City route--gives me a night to recuperate before Bacchus Sunday, and it's really nice no longer having to to fight huge crowds camped out for Endymion while trying to watch Iris and Tucks.
E had a ball. This is her third Mardi Gras, but it's the first time I think she really got it. Other than a few mishaps with flying beads making contact with her face, she loved every minute of it.
