Mardi Gras {Shreveport, LA} 2012

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

This past weekend WildHair Buddy and I loaded up our older kids and headed to her parents home in Louisiana to celebrate Mardi Gras.  A self-professed Yankee – I have to admit, I’ve never really “gotten” Mardi Gras – when I was younger we didn’t really celebrate it up north.   While I do recall watching the craziness down in NOLA on the news – it seemed so far away it was almost exotic.

WildHair Boy and I had such a great time.  I think the highpoint for him may have been the Beignet’s (which WildHair Buddy assured us she would make us again soon).  The kids danced, listened to music, caught beads, explored the woods where we stayed – we even managed to keep computer time down to a minimum.  Surely our experience was tame and family friendly – but fun and memorable all the same.
