Parties and Parades

Well, it was one of those weekends: beautiful spring weather, Lil' Miss June's seventh birthday on Saturday (my, my!), Krewe du Vieux kicking off the parade season. A few pictures:

June woke up at 6 a.m. on her birthday. Since it was still seven hours until her little party, we took a drive out to the lake front to the admire the stunningly dense fog.




Gaggle of kiddos, watching the parade. (Krewe du Vieux is a bawdy affair, but these N.O. kids are amazingly unphased, having seen it every year since infancy: "Giant marching phalli—whatever.")

Sarah ran into a work associate.

After the parade.

For her big sister treat, I took Louise on her longest bike ride to date: to the park, around, and back. She was a champ.

Afterward, a quiet read on the balcony.

    My god, June is looking like a little Dave clone, especially in the first pic. Whereas Louise is Sarah Jr. Beautiful girls. Love to you all.
