Mom got this Miller hat-some guy placed it on her head. It is so funny because my mom has NEVER drank a day in her life, mix the hat with all the beads that she got and you get quite the party animal.
Dad, mom, and Megan really got into the spirit at the parade. I kind of hung back trying to keep dry because it was raining (a cold rain) and I had on a tshirt. I tried to keep mom dry since she was sitting ankle deep in a puddle, but once the rain stopped it was back to bead collecting. Crazy they are!
I had to put this picture of mom and Megan in, becuase with the amount of beads they have it looks like they were quite the part animals.
Okay, my dad had a little too much fun, and not one drop of alcohol. It proves you don't have to drink to have fun. I tried to convince him that this was a family event and flashing wasn't around, but I guess he just got caught up in the moment...
So after the rain, I was kind of not into Mardi Gras as much since I got soaked, but when we got home, my dad convinced me to lighten up a bit and get in one last "flash"...It's scary, i know.
Well Mardi Gras was quite the experience. It was fun, but the best part was having my folks down...did I mention they've been down here three times since Christmas? I think they are just trying to escape the cold up north.
Thanks guys for coming to see us! We miss you lots!
