Okay, probably not the first family friendly idea that comes to mind on a nice day when you want to get the kids out of the house. But my friend, Malia, suggested we check out The Saluda Hill Cemetary for the view alone. So we did.
And, I have to admit, the view was actually pretty darn amazing for South Alabama!
Tori took the majority of these photos. Good job, girl.
This was our very first time at the KOMM Parade. A friend invited us down to check it out. We plan to return. The company and view is WELL worth it.
Oh, did I mention Don, Susan and the girls came in town for Mardi Gras?! YAY!!
Last year I got those cups for all the kids. They were a crazy straw kinda hit.
Tori and Maggie enjoyed taking pictures while we snacked and waited for the parade to roll.
TJ got the baby in the King Cake (recipe posted another day — it was a most excellent King Cake) but he gave it to Tommy. I thought he was being sweet, but now I think he’s trying to get out of buying/making the next King Cake.
And my favorite ending to a parade EVER… there is a older lady passing floats on her personal scooter. ZOOMING past them.
