Mardi Gras was alot of fun. This was the first year that Tory did not ride in the Endymion Parade so it was a little different. We went to the staging area (where they riders get on their floats and where the parade starts). Long story short, Tory almost got arrested for not moving fast enough - 5 kids, a stroller, ice chest, dog cart, pregnant wife. Tanner did not like getting hit by beads either. On Sunday we went to Uptown to watch Toath and it was such a great parade.
