Girls’ weekend! The sun was shining, the road was clear and we were heading to L’Auberge Du Lac Casino to see Daughtry! Wait! What?! *blue lights flashing* Because she was soooooo polite, all she got was a seatbelt warning! Momadaboma! We had a blast!

Whatta krewe…I love this picture! We moved to New Orleans in 1974 when my dad started dental school at LSUSD. Four years later we were seasoned revelers and rarely missed a Mardi Gras.
