We are a Louisiana family and a big part of our heritage is to celebrate Mardi Gras. We would look forward to getting off of school for an extended weekend every year and going to all of the parades and other fun festivities surrounding the holiday.
We try to keep the traditions alive with the kids, now that we live in Texas. Mardi Gras in Texas is definitely not Louisiana, but we still have a great time. This has been the second year in a row that the quints have been able to go to the Galveston Island Mardi Gras Dog parade and Children’s parade. It was a lot different last year, because they barely left the stroller for the entire time. Ahhh…. Things were much simpler then..
This year, the girls are full on walkers and there was no way that we could have been able to leave them cooped up in the strollers through the two parades. Luckily, we had a great group of friends that joined us for the day and helped us keep a nice little barrier around this crazy group of toddlers.
To finish off the Mardi Gras Festivities, we headed over to The RouxPour – Baybrook Mall in Friendswood, TX for Fat Tuesday festivities. The girls had a blast just running around out on the lawn at the mall, getting their faces painted and listening to live music.
Do you celebrate Mardi Gras where you are from? If so, how was your Mardi Gras weekend?
Hope you enjoy our video from the weekend! Come along for all the Action!
