Video Thursday: Mardi Gras

Riley-bean attended his first official Mardi Gras parade last weekend. Kenny and I took him to the family-friendly Caesar parade in the ‘burbs on Saturday night, and we met up with a handful of our friends and their kids.


We hadn’t had a cold spell in such a long time but of course the night we all decide to stand outside waving our hands in the air for beads and trinkets was absolutely freezing! We just bundled up as best we could and hoped the kids wouldn’t mind (which they didn’t).


Riley was kept up way past his bedtime but I think he really enjoyed the parade. There was so much for him to look at, between the lights on the floats and the police cars and the tractors and the different things flying through the air. This was pretty much how his face looked throughout the duration of the parade:


My beautiful wide-eyed, blue-eyed boy.

Here’s a short video from our fun night out on the parade route…..enjoy!

Happy Thursday!

A continous expression of "AWE". Glad to know my grandson is getting some good New Orleans culture.
