It’s Mardi Gras time! Galveston has several family-friendly Mardi Gras parades (no booze, no boob flashing), so I try to go to one of these parades each year. Jose had never been to a Mardi Gras parade, so I explained the whole thing to him – Fat Tuesday, Lent, Catholicism, etc etc. He thought it was all a bit odd. But once the parade started and they started throwing things, he was out there grabbing beads just like everyone else.
I grabbed a small collection of beads and things. And Ivy got her fair share of beads too.
