DD at Mardi Gras

We headed to the seawall for the 1st parade of Mardi Gras. The Mystic Krewe of Aquarius Mardi Gras Kickoff Parade at 12p. It was a fun parade but it was cold. So we went to the Olympia Grill to get some soup and warm up. And to eat lunch. We went to Academy Sports & Outdoors to get some gloves and they ran out. Brilliant. We then went to see the fire truck parade at 3p. It was ok but noisy. We then went to Target to get some gloves and they ran out. So DD mentioned Home Depot. I was like ok why not. And they had some. Garden ones but they did work and kept our hands warm.
Then we went to the Krewe of Gambrinus "The Spirit of New Orleans" Parade at 6:30p. Nice parade with cool floats and of course caught beads. We then went to the Z Krewe party for dinner and threw beads off the balcony. It was not as cold as last year and we brought better beads. It was a lot of fun.
