Weekend of parades

Wow! Who knew a weekend of parades could be so exhausting! And I wasn't even drinking! The big question now is, "What do people do with twenty pounds of Mardi Gras beads and 18 Moon Pies?" Perhaps I overdid, this being my first ever Mardi Gras celebration, but what an education and what a lot of fun memories.

My favorite moments were those I captured of wide-eyed children and patient pets, but next best were the smiles of all the people who had a long-overdue opportunity to forget the devastation of the past year and a half.

Will I celebrate Mardi Gras differently next year? You betcha! I'm only going to catch 17 Moon Pies!
