First Mardi Gras experience

No, we didn't go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras or anything.  In fact, I've never even been to Louisiana!  But Brian has.  He went on a missions trip with the church back at the end of June.  He and a team of students and adult leaders (there were 10 of them) got to go to New Orleans to put on a soccer camp for the local kids.  They did a little exploring and sight seeing on their down time.  And he came home with beads.  Lots. Of. Beads.  I mean, a huge bag FULL of them.....and this was after all the other 9 members of the group took some home too.  Needless to say, we have lots of beads floating around every nook and cranny of our house:)  In fact, I even give some away to the kids friends when they are over:)  A person only needs so many beads after all!  

Moving on.  The kids loved the beads.  They are all fun, bright colors, and they loved loading themselves down with as many as they could. Eli holds the record.  Maybe by default since he's the biggest:)  And they still love playing with these beads.  Who knew beads could be so entertaining?!

 Even Parker likes them.  They have come in handy for distracting/entertaining on several occasions when we are out of the house.  Don't be surprised if you see us out and about and you see our baby with beads around his neck:)
