Mardi Gras!!!

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.

The kids loved the bright colors and flashing lights on the floats.

Here, Spencer makes an all-star grab of some beads from a passing float.

Even Laney got into the spirit of Mardi Gras!

This was a fun way to experience Mardi Gras as a family. And to think, the parades go for four more days!

Flower Girl

Erik's New Thing

So Erik loves to take everything out of the diaper bag and get in it to play. I think it is pretty funny. I am forever entertained by him. He cracks me up.

Best Buddies

Erik and Laney are best friends. They love to play together.

I am forever entertained by them.

Rice Cereal!!!

Laney LOVES her rice cereal. This was her first try at it.

Zoo Day!!

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

This was the view on the train ride. I loved it. I wasn't expecting the swamp. It was cool.
