Mardi Gras 2012 (Pensacola)

In 2012, Aaron’s birthday was the same day as the Pensacola Friday night parade. We took Aaron mardigras2012and two of his friends to the parade. We also brought Forrest for the first time.  Bringing Forrest ended up being a bad idea though. Forrest did not like the loud noises. The boys did very well catching beads and other items. I brought a ladder to help the boys get attention over other people. Aaron enjoyed his 13th birthday. Afterward we ate some pie to celebrate the day.
