Fat Tuesday

We’ve been partying all week in New Orleans. It started with the Saints Victory Parade last Tuesday, followed by a whole slew of parades on Friday. We took the weekend off and then attended more parades last night and this morning. I just love Mardi Gras, but I have to admit that I wasn’t quite as enthusiastic this year. It probably had something to do with the cold weather. Parades aren’t half so fun when you’re fingers, toes and ears are freezing. But we braved the weather and have a huge bag of beads to add to the ones in my closet.

Here are a few of the sights from this year’s Mardi Gras:
