Mummy left us at home and went to see Mardi Gras in New Orleans with a friend. WHAT? She has a life that doesn’t include US? What gives???? She brought back a mask so we could see what everyone was wearing down there during the parades and celebrations. I LOVE PARADES AND CELEBRATIONS!!! She told us about the shrimp gumbo and creoles. I LOVE SHRIMP GUMBO!!! She told us about the beads that were thrown from the floats. I LOVE BEADS… ESPECIALLY IN HAIRBOWS!!! Next year, I am going to Mardi Gras.
