Mardi Gras in Mobile
We were able to travel to Mobile a couple of weekends back and take the kids to the Saturday parades. They had so much fun ! It was so neat to share this with them, part of Mobile culture... I grew up doing every year !
"Arriving" in true Mardi Gras spirit. Jackson wasn't interested in donning the mask I picked up for him ! Grant wore his for a short time. Maddy had hers on most of the day and the ink from it transferred to her face and she was pink for the next few days!
I love catching the beads and cups at Mardi Gras , my kids however love the fact that stuffed animals are a popular item to be caught... now, we have just moved and keep in mind, I have already made at least 4 trips to Goodwill dropping off donations. I really don't need 20 more stuffed animals coming home with me ! It is my opinion that these revelers retrieve these stuffed animals from their kids in donations boxes perhaps the mom has sorted them into.. and this saves them money on buying their throws ! THANKS mister... thanks a lot !
No matter .. . I will always love Mobile Mardi Gras !
And my kids will too !
