the kids and I went to my parents for the weekend and went to the Mardi Gras parade in their area. The two older kids had gone the weekend prior and RACKED up on the goods. I think this was Jace's first year for the parades...I don't remember if we took him last year. The kids had a great time. They really got into the parade, they enjoyed catching the goods and dancing. Jace kept wanting to throw the beads back-he is really into throwing stuff these days!!
