Mardi Gras 2012

This trip was so much fun. We got to spend some great time with family and friends. This year we took our friends Ed, Donna, William and Samantha. It was their first Mardi Gras and everyone had a blast. The food, company, daiquiri's, beads, king cakes, bloody mary's, french market, shopping. Even the rain. Something about New Orleans just makes everything better. Thanks to our family for once again making us feel at home and making the parades so much fun. They always know the best places to stand, let us hang out in the Ashley house and give us a place to stay. It's always so great to see everyone. This was Jackson's 4th Mardi Gras and to say he is a pro would be an understatement. He started out every parade yelling "Hey Mister, throw me something" and by the third float it would turn into "HEY! HEY! HEY!" It was so funny. Only 360 days until next time. ;)  I only took my cell phone and Diana camera {those pictures to come} so enjoy the pictures!

We actually left on Daddy's birthday. So when he got home from work around 9am. We had some balloons and his presents. We were so excited!
