Kensley's first big Louisiana!

Kensley went to her first, big parade yesterday! We had so much fun. It was called the Irish-Italian parade and next to Mardi Gras, it is one of their biggest parades. They throw all kinds of vegetables at you, to you, past you...etc! We also got flowers, swords, stickers, and of course, beads! James and I had to wander away to the bathroom (several times) because we had a few drinks while there. We made a detour on our way back to the parade and found this awesome daquiri bar. We had two jello shots there and came out with five daquiris! I got a fudge bar one and it was better then any chocolate shake I've ever had. We ended the day over at Aunt Debbie and Uncle Tim's house where James found himself eating crawfish (pinchin' the heads and sucking the tails) for the first time!

Takin' her first bath in the the sink!

Kensley needs a bottle as soon as we get there.

Mommy, Daddy, and Kensley!

Her first set of beads and she didn't even have to lift up her dress!

Beads anyone?!

Nap time!! :)

Kensley finally met her Great-Aunt Debbie!
