We have loved Mardi Gras. Happily (and sadly), I think this may be Maddie's favorite ever. Too bad she won't remember! I will post some of the thousand pictures I took after our trip to Disney, but I hope I will always remember her absolute joy with every minute of it. And she had a lot of minutes, since we went to every possible parade from noon until night and she only napped in the drive downtown and on shoulders! She fell asleep tonight wiggling her hips, waving for beads and nodding at the horses - all in her bed. I think she was reliving it all!
Having her cousins here, was great, too. JW & Rome loved the parades, too, but they are much more particular - Maddie likes everything, although she does know the difference between good beads and boring ones. The boys wanted spears and toys, and JW wanted the Star Wars people to come back again. We will really miss them next year, but maybe they share beads in Abu Dhabi.
I won't be posting from Disney, but these are some pictures from our trip in December.
