I hope you enjoyed Mardi Gras this year as much as I did. I don't know about you, but I was pretty paraded out by the time Tuesday ended!  Still, it was a great time, and I thought I'd share some of the sights I caught during the 2014 Krewe of Krewes Parade here in Lake Charles. I've also got some pictures from the parade back in my hometown, Jennings, too. Thanks to everyone for pelting me and my family with beads -- we officially have enough beads to create a whole new family member, if we want to!
