This Saturday Shea’s mom was the Emblem for her society for Mardi Gras. Our sister-in-law Amy was the Queen. Both were very gorgeous in their gowns. We left the house around 9am and ate breakfast, and got to the hotel in Mobile a bit too early. So we went to the Colosseum and watched Mam practice walking in the Emblem train and mask. Then we went back to the hotel and got our rooms.
The girls spent most of their time in the bedroom. It was cold this year unlike last year so we didn’t mind. We watched one parade where the girls got quite a few toys instead of tons of beads. That was good we really don’t need the beads.
Kathleen was in a rush to get dressed she kept asking what time it was. She knew at 5pm we would be going to take baths and such. Shea took a nap from about 3 to 5 and we came in to start our primping process. 5 was probably a bit to early for the girls but they enjoyed the time we had. They loved their dresses. Sam even stayed awake during the performance. She did try to sleep but we wouldn’t let her.
All in all it was a good day. I will get some pictures up soon.
