I have been working in Baton Rogue this week and this past Saturday night we took the opportunity to go to a Mardi Gras Parade in the downtown area. We found a parking place right across the street from the First Baptist Church so that made me feel safe – hehe. It surprised me that is was a very family friendly parade and was so much fun. The floats were TALL and had scary masked men on them but they sure threw me beads! I guess they could spot a tourist from a far –hehe. You had to be a good catch or they hurt you , especially if they hit you!
I was pretty proud of the beads I got –
Hey friends- do you have any ideas what to do with them? And now I got to figure out how the heck to get them home.
Saw a Mardi Gras Parade – check
Ate Gumbo – check

Ok, I guess I can say I experienced Louisiana.Can’t wait to get back home to my Texas!
