Mardi Gras {Parade Fun}

After a downpour on Friday night, the weather this weekend was parade perfect except for the heat. It could have been a little cooler. There was no rain, so that was fine by me.

This weekend began the hurried yet exciting rounds of parades. Living just two blocks off the Uptown parade route makes it extra special for J and I. It is always a joy to see and talk with friends and neighbors walking to and from the parades.

The construction on our end of Napoleon Avenue is finally over, so it was exciting to have our neutral ground back. With fresh sod, it made the return even more inviting. Ladders, tents, wagons filled the neutral grounds all weekend long. Now, I hope this string of good weather will last.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!


  1. Yay! I feel special for making the blog, even looking rough after a day in the heat! It was so great seeing you guys. Your house always looks like a magazine spread (and sometimes actually is!) and smells even better. xoxo

  2. How fun, we have never been to New Orleans as hubby simply doesn't like crowds. But to have it in your neighborhood, how wonderful. Thanks for posting this exuberant celebration, Sandi

  3. Fun times!!! Always love reading your Mardi Gras posts.

  4. Good evening, Ron! I'm so happy that the construction on Napoleon is finally done! Now, we are looking forward to the construction on Jackson Avenue to be finished! I know you are enjoying being able to walk to the parades!Laissez les bons temps rouler! Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo

  5. Mardi Gras is on my bucket list and I told D I wanted to go next year!!!
