There's no place like Houma
The reason I haven't blogged in a week is that we were out of town again. It would have been easier to have just clicked our heels 3 times and been back in Louisiana, but the flight really wasn't that bad. We went to celebrate our 1st Mardi Gras! We knew better that to stay in New Orleans with a toddler, and Houma has great festivities on a more manageable scale. There was a parade the 1st night we got there, which goes right in front of Gran's house. Joseph got a few Christmas presents people had waiting for his arrival!
Waiting for some action with Mimi and Poppy:
Then the floats come by. One of Joseph's new words is "truck." Heard it about a million times, as every single truck, float, car, van, and bus went by.
And they throw stuff at you! Mostly beads, but also balls, stuffed animals, frisbees, and all kinds of other stuff.
There's so much more to post. We took about 250 pictures and videos. I won't make you see them all, but there's some great stuff to share. Keep checking back!
