Mardi Gras just passed and boy did we have fun! We went to TONS of parades. I LOVE Mardi Gras in Lafayette. Crazy enough I am really starting to love it out here. The culture, the festivities, the people (although I dont know hardly anyone) and by far the houses. I guess just mainly because you can get so much more house and land out here. But I am still hoping to move back closer to friends and family. We will see.
Back to Mardi Gras. We started off the season with two small parades here in Lafayette on Valentines day. It was lots of fun. And so great to see so many families there. No craziness where we were :) Then we went down to New Orleans for our anual parade with Colin's moms good friend from college. It was a blast as usual. Then we went to a parade in Youngsville! Its a small town probably about the size of Prairieville or Walker! Colins parents and sister came to our house for it. I dont think ANY of us were expectiing it to be as big as it was. WOW! I didnt think that it would ever end. We got sooo much stuff. And the girls REALLY enjoyed themselves.
Here is some pictures of the girls at the parades :)
This is Rylee at the parade we went to in Terrytown. She got a sword and was BEYOND happy! And her and her Uncle Bubba got into lots of sword fights! It was pretty funny!
