Oh Cindy Sweetie...
What fun. I caught my beads. I gottem, sure did. I loved seeing the band and what fun with all the floats. Have they ever said how long it takes for these people to create these floats? I mean some are so detailed. Love the bright colors.

Thank you for letting me tag along to Mardi Gras this morning. A beautiful escape sweet friend.

Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

We love Mardi Gras, and used to go every year when we were members of a krewe. We may show up in New Orleans for Jazz Fest this year--another great part of New Orleans.

Judie said...

Cindy, our daughter, who is visiting us right now, lives in New Orleans, and that is how we became involved with a krewe.

I always seem to miss Jazz Fest, but am determined to go this year. I will let you know exactly what our plans are!!
