February - Mardi Gras New Orleans

As per family tradition whenever possible, Jon and I drove to New Orleans for quality time with the family and for Mardi Gras.  Despite the bad name that Mardi Gras has, it is actually a very family oriented holiday.  Where most people who visit go wrong, is that they go to the touristy only spots where there is 1. lots of drinking and 2. where they are catering to the tourist crowd that can get a bit rambunctious.

As usual, we enjoyed the flamboyant floats, the quirky costumes, and just the all over good time.
