Even though Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) is not until next Tuesday, the parades and celebrations started a couple of weeks ago. We went to a more family oriented parade in downtown Baton Rouge and had a blast. Erik was especially excited about the marching bands, floats and goodies thrown to the crowd.
The float riders try to get the stuffed animals and toys to the kids they see in the crowd and Erik came away with far more than just beads.
Laney's attention could not be drawn to the camera with the prade rolling by right next to her.

A few weeks ago the kids and I went to the zoo with some friends. We had so much fun seeing the animals and riding the train. It was really cold outside but we had a really good time anyway.
This fountain was a big hit even though the water was freezing cool
This is the first time I have ever seen a Giraffe sit
Erik loved this red wagon as soon as he saw it he got right in
Erik and his friend Reece
I think this goat wanted to eat Erik. He was really aggresive. It was a little scary.
Erik loved the Train. He didn't want to get off
