We had a terrific time this weekend with Kat, Aaron, Steph, and Brad from Dallas, and friends from New Orleans as well! Friday night we watched two parades on St. Charles Ave. after eating tasty fajitas at Superior Grill! Krewe D'Etat is my favorite parade. It's a hilarious satire on local and national politics, and of course, celebrities when it's just too easy. One of my favorite floats was Sarah Palin as "My Fair Lady". Love her! I also loved their interpretation of New Orleans' mayor, Ray Nagan as "The Phantom". He's been MIA a lot this year, so it's so fitting. I love Mardi Gras, but I can't help thinking "What in the world?" about some of the traditions (and no, I'm not referring to what you might be thinking...get your mind out of the gutter.) I don't want our New Orleans friends to get offended, so ask Brad about it... Ha! Poor guy was scared. We enjoyed beignets in the French Quarter on Saturday and a strole down the 'ol Bourbon Street. We even got to throw beads off a balcony! Carnival season is so much fun...especially getting a week off school. YEA!!!! I hope you enjoyed the pictures!
