When we moved to Mississippi, I was a lil bit sad. After few weeks, hubby and I were able to adjust the easy lifestyle of enjoying the beach, do fishing and crabbing. There are 8 casinos nearby and one activity that we love doing was dining in their restaurants. We hang out and hop each one almost everyday. I worked in one of the casinos too. There is no dull moment living in Mississippi. Each month there's always big activities happening down the Gulfcoast such as cruisin' the coast, mardi gras, 4th of July, and many other incredible festivals.Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana carry the Mardi Gras tradition like no other. It's a huge celebration. These photos were taken during the Morning Mardi Gras parade at D'Iberville. There are so many awesome krewes, amazing floats and tons of beautiful beads, yummy moon pies, and gorgeous stuff toys were thrown to the happy crowd.I was standing with the kids around me so, the Krewe's did not see me but them. I collected few nice beads for me this year and caught some ordinary beads as well.The parade lasted about 2 hours and we have full bag of beads after. If you watch the Mardi Gras parade and these men give you the paper flowers, you have to kiss them. I usually hide at the back of my hubby when they are around but, one guy approached and gave me the flower. A trick initiated by my husband and I got nowhere to escape. Well, it was fun. Our family were there with us and I admit, I will surely miss this type of activy since we are back for good in Orlando.
