oh, when the Saints came rolling in...........

is what JD and the celebrators at my house kept saying.
So I took that as an excuse-
yes to miss work and yes for our kiddos to miss school for a couple of days!!

NOLA road trip it was!
JD, me, Ashleigh, Grandy, and Mr. Bill headed in the van bright and early Tuesday morning!
All to see the "Saints come rolling In" with that trophy!

early in the day outside JD's parents apartment in the quarter
love, love that place!
took lots of pics throughout the day....
mostly just shots of us.
fun is seen on each and every face, i would say.

Jackson Sqaure
waiting for the parade started early and here
all I can say -

then across the street against this rail.
we starting waiting about 3.

the parade got to us about 7.
we had front row seats, no seats really, just standing room.
floods of pictures to follow

we had fun taking pictures before the parade the camera died shortly after
the parade started.
here's what we got.......
We saw all the SAINTS including Drew Brees up close!


It was great - I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Kiddos were a little upset they could not go, but Granny Audie and Papa were good
to them so I think they forgave us.

JD only thought we were going to be kid free, but that didn't last long.
I ended up holding some little three year old boy the entire parade because I felt real guilty for almost knocking over his momma over while she was standing in a chair holding him.
I volunteered to hold him so he could see.
Who would have thought she would have just passed him several rows over to a stranger?
Me and little David Butler got to be real close. I even gave him the only bead I caught.
He liked it.
I have to say he had been to many parades before and had many tips for me.
He even knew most of the players names and told me all about them as I wiped his runny nose.
He was a cutie.

fun, fUn, FUN was had by all!
thank you - SAINTS!
