Mardi Gras 2012 - Part 2

What a difference a year makes! This is our family last year during Mardi Gras....yikes (my purple hair is really scary)!
Here are some pics from this Sunday's uptown parades.

Benjamin, Owen and Virginia in the ladder
Mommy and Mary Elizabeth having a snuggle in between parades
Seth and ME
Owen giving Ben a big hug...these two play really well together now. And if you ask O who his best friend is, he says, "Ben!"
Emily and Virginia...Virginia was a serious parade go'er today - she literally sat in that ladder for hours...no breaks.

Family pic after all the parades...both kids were excellent! Mary Elizabeth LOVES the bands...the louder, the better! She fell asleep again during the parade and slept for 2 hours in her stroller while parades were floating by! This is a big deal, cause she refuses to nap in her bed (in the peace and quiet)...maybe we should get a band CD and play it while she naps. Seriously.

videoThis is a video of the 610 Stompers...they are always the highlight of each parade for me (they are in multiple parades uptown). Check them out - www.610stompers.com
They actually got to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade this past year. I love the shorts...I love the socks...I love the mustaches...I love it all!

  1. OOOH, i saw video of the 610 stompers in the Macy's Parade - lucky of you to see them in person! Looks like so much fun! Benjamin looks practically grown in the baseball cap!
