A Walk Down Our Block – Mardi Saints Superbowl & Mardi Gras Parades!

I’ve wanted to do this since we moved into this house in Houma. It’s a quick walk down the block on Saints Superbowl Sunday to see the Krewe of Hyacinthians and Krewe of Titans parade through Houma. We live about two blocks from the main parade route.

Although the krewes always have a theme when they roll, judging from the noise of New Orleans Saints themed music and endless “Who Dat” chants into the night, the Superbowl is the theme for this weekend.

Mardi Says She’ll Hang With The Planck Pack

We named her Mardi since we’ve lived in Mardi Gras country for over 7 years (At least it’s the French word for Tuesday and not Fat). She was adopted from the Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter on January 8, 2010. Caidy picked her out over the holidays, but it was almost two weeks of waiting since she had to go to New Orleans for shots and neutering.

Mardi was born November 20, 2009. She’s a Shepherd/Unknown and we have no idea about the Unknown part. I guess we will found out soon enough. Pretty smart for a little puppy and starting to get the house-breaking thing. I think we’re going to have a lot of fun with this one.

Fate the 12 year old cat has given her a provisional “thumbs up”. The other two cats are still thinking about it.
