I must say Eric and I had kinda forgotten about Mardi Gras being removed from it for so long. We both had not even been to a parade since college. We are not big fans of the event, but we thought it would be nice to take the boys to a family friendly parade in Pass Christian this year to let Nolan catch some beads and see all the floats. He really wasn't too impressed and was coming down with the flu...which we found out he had the very next day (last weekend). Eric and I also went to our first Mardi Gras ball together last Friday with some friends in Biloxi and danced for hours! We had a blast and it was fun to get all dressed up and enjoy and evening out without the kids!
With our friends Sam & Sarah
Aside from our fun festivities lately, both boys came down with the flu and we spent a lot of restless nights this past week taking care of them. William had to be hospitalized on Thursday vomitting, running 105.2 fever and was dehydrated. He also had some other infection going on besides the flu that they could never find. Anyhow, they released him last night and we had our best night's sleep in 7 days. William is fever free and feeling back to his normal self. Thank God! There is nothing worse than having sick babies!!
