More on that Mardi Gras Stuff

On the 13th, the hub, kid and I attended the Mystic Order of Shadow Barons' parade in Daphne.

There were some folks that had attended balls before hand (and afterward, I'm sure). I love this picture. Kinda eery, if ya ask me.

These guys opened the parade.

This searchlight was used in Daphne around 1943, searching the sky for enemy aircraft.

One of the biggies.

And this was my favorite, the pirate ship!

These were fun too, of course.

Doubloons galore.

On Valentine's Day, we went back to Daphne for the afternoon parade which was by

The Loyal Order of the Fire Truck.

On the 15th was the children's parade in Fairhope.

It was so cute.

I don't know who had more fun, the kids or the parade goers.

Such work!

Loved this kid!

And the Order of Moonpie Munchers!

And then later in the day, this bus passed me. tehe

Our little part of the celebration.

And behind that door, I'm enjoying the winter Olympics! Ooooh, how fun!! Watching Shaun White tonight!
