fat tuesday

today was the day. fat tuesday. today's celebrations were the pinnacle of two weeks' worth of building anticipation. and William was excited. here he is getting ready to head to new orleans for parades, floats, and beads galore. he could hardly wait.
new orleans has had a great two weeks. first, the superbowl, and then mardi gras. so we got all dressed up and went to revel in the festivities.

it was pretty wild out there with beads flying . . .
roses flying . . . (good catch Will!)
and masses of people everywhere.
so now we can say we did it. we're only down here for a year (we think/hope . . .), so we had to experience mardi gras in all of its glory. and oh, how glorious it was!
