Soooo many beads

Happy Mardi Gras.
 We had a great time at the Mardi Gras parades and I just wanted Wendy to post some pics from them.

 On Monday night after raining all day we headed off to the Order of the Mystic Magnolias parade in Fairhope. It stopped raining for most of the parade. The light crowd made getting the throws crazy. We filled two bags as they first passed and they do two trips around. We ended up getting a cooler from the truck and filling that. It was just crazy.
Theme was Roaring 20's

 On Tuesday we got our timing messed up and missed getting to the Gulf Shores parade. But it was probably best as we hit one at Orange Beach and were told it was many of the same floats.

Pink Heals
 We really enjoyed all the parades we attended. Each with different types of floats. We don't know if we will be in a area that celebrates Mardi Gras again. There are so many other places to explore.
 Today was spent getting ready to head out for Abbeville La. in the morning.

     Happy Valentine's to all.
