METAIRIE HOSTS MARDI GRAS MADNESS
This may have been the last year for this particular spot on the parade route. Brad's cousin and her family will be moving into a new house soon and it's not close to the parade. It was nice while it lasted.
It's been some time since Mardi Gras, but Maren still remembers that Brant was sick the weekend prior to the parade and then relapsed afterward. He was a good sport during the event and spent most of the time sleeping in Papa K's truck. Laurel had a great time, but it wasn't until later in the afternoon that her worst sunburn to date evidenced itself. She definitely inherited her mom's fair skin.
The family took home plenty of loot and Brad ate his fill of Popeye's fried chicken.
Laurel also enjoyed a parade at her school. The kindergartners supplied the floats and everyone else got to be the crowd. Laurel and Brant had a great time. They even had a great band to lead off the parade.
