Granny and G.G. taking it easy in the back of Papa K's truck. Papa K came to reserve this spot on Sunday. It was perfect! Check out the food spread on the table to the right. This family knows how to do Mardi Gras!
Laurel dancing in the street to the music from one of the floats. She wore the beads for a few minutes, but then decided she'd rather just catch them and put them in the bag.
Brad and Brant enjoying Papa K's ladder chair. Papa K built this just for the kids, allowing them to see over the crowds. This is very common at the parades. Some people even had their ladders decorated! Notice that Brad is holding a moon pie in his hand. For our non-southern readers, this is a gram cracker marshmallow sandwich covered in chocolate.
The kids playing in the back of Papa K's truck. G.G. had even set up the port-a-crib in there. The kids took turns climbing in and out of it. Brant was in his diaper because he was a little overheated. Once out of the truck, though, his pants were put back on!
Just before leaving, Daddy and Brant danced one last time to the music of the floats.
