We have been to parades before, but only in Lake Charles and Metairie. This was our first one in New Orleans.
|On our way to the parades!|
|Still pretty early, not a whole lot of people out here yet...|
|Football with friends!|
|Our little Jack Jack boo.|
|My handsome husband playing with the boys while we wait...|
|Some more waiting...you have to set up and reserve your spot, then you just hang out and visit and wait for the parades!|
|Waiting is a lot more fun when you are with friends...|
|Boys boys boys!|
|I was so scared they were gonna tumble into the street! But they didn't : )|
|Parade is about to start!|
|This is how they used to light up the parades way back in the day...I think they are called flambeaus?|
|We had so much fun!|
|Our sweet friends!|
|The floats are nothing like what we had back in Lake Charles!|
The Uptown throws were so much better than any other parade I've ever been to. We are ready to go back tomorrow after all this rain gone!
