THROW ME SOMETHIN!


TODAY IS THE LAST DAY!
DON'T FORGET TO GO AND ENTER MY CHEESE! GLORIOUS CHEESE GIVEAWAY!

This weekend Kenny, Elle and I hit the road for the gulf coast to visit our friends Megan and Patrick and their little boy Frances.  We see them a lot during football season but decided a visit while we are so close to them was in order!

Kenny left early Saturday morning to go fishing with Patrick.  Unfortunately they did not catch anything.  Elle and I headed down after lunch.

The weather this weekend was so gorgeous!  We took the opportunity to play outside when we could.
Elle actually sharing in this picture and letting Frances have a ride in his Cozy Coupe. Kenny and I decided Elle might need one of these.  She was obsessed!

Sunday was a big day.  Bay St. Louis was having their Mardi Gras parade and then the Super Bowl was that night.  Kenny and I were so excited to take Elle to her first parade but weren't entirely sure what she would think about the whole thing.  Despite not having a nap all day, she loooooved it.  She got so into it.  She loved all the Queens of the Krewes and their pretty dresses, loved all the floats which she called choo choos and really loved all the neat things people gave her and the beads.  People on the floats would see Kenny and I holding her and waving at them and they would bend over to specifically give her things.   Towards the end she was a little zombified from all the excitement and no afternoon nap.  But overall it was a total sucess and we all had so much fun!
 A little morning play time before Mardi Gras party time!
 
 A rare picture of Kenny and I together.  We always forget to take pictures of 
ourselves because are too busy taking pictures of Elle.
 Look at all those beads! She really loved that flower she is holding too.

 She asked to be put down in the stroller for a little bit. She was totally pooped!
 Mommy and a very tired Elle.  I get so many cute pics of Kenny and Elle 
and then I try to get one and this is the result!
Done with the parade and playing with some of the loot.  
She was totally weighed down with all those beads.

After the parade we headed back to Patrick and Megan's to play outside and relax.  We ended up grilling hot dogs and baking brownies for the Super Bowl.  We were all so tired and might of all been asleep on the sofas before the game was even over.  However, I will say that Beyonce totally rocked that half time show!  I loved the Destiny's Child reunion and now I'm listening to old school Destiny's Child cds on Spotify the last couple days.

It was such a fun weekend!  I hope we can take Elle to a Mardi Gras parade every year now that we are back in Mississippi whether it is on the coast or a family oriented parade in New Orleans!

BE SURE CHECK BACK TOMORROW TO SEE WHO WINS THE GIVEAWAY!
