Mardi Gras 2012

 Mardi Gras this year was so special.

We loaded the family up and took off to Mamou and Eunice, where Mardi Gras originated.  

Mamou is a teeny tiny town about an hour and a half from us.  There is so much culture and tradition there.
It is known as "The Cajun Music Capital in the World."  

My husband's family is from here and he is very proud of his heritage.  I love how he has shared that with our family.

This little guy was particularly excited about the parade and all the festivities.

Jamie's Uncle Joey was there.  He is very special to us.

This makes me smile.

Even baby girl got her share of beads.  

This is what Sloaney's feet looked like after her first Mardi Gras experience. 

Good food, good music.  What a fun day.

I'm pretty sure Grayson will remember this day for the rest of his life.

I can't wait to do it again next year.

Did you celebrate Fat Tuesday?
