The Millers "deaux" Mardi Gras


We have successfully weathered our first Mardi Gras season and wanted to share some of the highlights. We went to only two parades and had a great time at both of them. We first went to the parade in a little town called "Youngsville" the Saturday before Fat Tuesday. It was really fun and the kids got A LOT of "trash"! We went home with a shopping bag literally full of beads and plastic coings and little cups. We went to the King's Parade that came through Lafayette on Fat Tuesday and it was a blast! The floats and costumes were amazing and kids got a lot of beads again! To give you idea of how big a deal this parade was, the King had to pay $50,000.00 to be in it. Hmmm, two new, nice cars or three hours of royalty? We only went to the one parade on Tuesday, but there were parades going on all day long. It was a great time!


Maya, Foster, and a friend waiting for the parade to come.


Throw me somethin' Mister!


Jon and Ella all pimped out.

Jon must be used to being pimped out though, being in a boy band and all...

Ella looks good in beads! You guys are party animals!! Tyler would really appreciate Courtney's boy band comment.

It was a lot of fun! Yeah, Jon really misses the fame and notoriety that he had in his boy band days. I told him to just wait. In just a few years our girls will be the same age as his old fans.

Jen M, how do you like your new house? We'd all love to see some pics...
