Mardi Gras Day is finally here

2/11 & 2/12/2013
New Orleans
Mardi Gras
Airstream Rally

Today we boarded the buses  to head for the National WWII Museum.  The museum is put together very nice and they are adding on with another large building.  This is a must see in New Orleans.  We have seen many similar displays in all the Armed Service Museums we have visited over the years.  My father was in WWII and the Korean War but never discussed  it with us.

2/12/2013 Mardi Gras Day translates to Fat Tuesday.  It means to live it up now because starting on Wednesday is the Lenten Season.  Many Parades today to I will just post lots of pictures.  We had a fun fun day on the parade route watching the Zulu Krewe and the Rex Krewe.

Mayor of New Orleans on white horse in the middle, he appears to be a very good horseman and handled this spirited mare quite well.

The Super Bowl Trophy was on display at the WWII museum for a few days.

The end of Mardi Gras, time to put all our glit and glamour away.  Our  Host, Lonnie was magnificent, she loves Mardi Gras and New Orleans.  I can't say enough on how much fun this entire event has been, all thanks to Lonnie and her dedicated helpers.

Safe Travels to all and thanks for stopping by
