Mardi Gras!!!

"Laissez les bons temps rouler!"

I don't know how many of y'all know that it's Mardi Gras time!!! We started celebrating this weekend. I just love this time of year!!! First we went to eat some crawfish because it just isn't Mardi Gras without crawfish!! Then we headed to Galveston...

We were supposed to go to the Seawall and watch the parade, but plans changed and we just headed to the Strand. We had any amazing time! We met up with Justin's brother and a bunch of our friends.

We ate a ton of food, drank some beers, caught some beads, and danced in the street!!!

We also watch a band call Neon Trees. They were really good!!!

(This is Amanda!!! This is my favorite pic of the night! Ha!)

We plan on taking the boys to the Fat Tuesday Parade (which we've been doing for the past 9 years)! They just love Mardi Gras and all those beads!!! Hope y'all are having a great Monday!!!
