Mardi Gras in the Crescent City!

Last Sunday, we caught the Mid-City parade and the first half of Bacchus, down in New Orleans. Here's some pics from our trip:

There was a lot of poking fun at F.E.M.A., local and state gov't, etc from Katrina at the Mid-City parade. I don't know if you can read the signs below. There was even a 'refrigerator heaven' float.

John enjoyed climbing the ladders, oh, and the Clydesdales. Look, the horse on the right even smiled for the picture!

More pictures to come . .

How cool! I love New Orleans. I went to Jazz Fest years ago, pre-kids and pre-hubby, and it was SO much fun! Glad to see the city is celebrating, even though there is a lot of work to do.

Hugs Suz

Weather looks great and looks like you had a fun time! Love those Clydesdales! My friend, around the corner, has a Clydesdale and he is such a character!
