Mardi Gras & a picnic

I've been neglecting my blog lately. It is definitely not that I don't think of posting or greatly wish to post, but it's because my dear daughter has had serious night-time sleeping issues and we had to work those out before I got any free time at night. I'm hear to say that letting the little misses cry it out the past three nights has been heaven to us! The first night she cried for 20 minutes and fell asleep, last night she cried for about 4 minutes, and tonight cried for less than 1 minute. PRAISE GOD! So, here I am!

Lundi Gras and Mardi Gras day were fun, but we were pretty tired by the time they rolled around. That's what a months worth of parades and festivities will do to you. For those of you who don't know, Mardi Gras day is actually the final day of the Carnival season. So, by then, we're pretty much all worn out!

Last Saturday, we took Emma on her first picnic to Audubon Park. We had a sweet time and even got to see some baby ducklings!

P.S. Sorry these pictures are in backwards order.

Happy Mardi Gras!
