Throw me something Mister!
Well, it has been yet another week filled with ups and downs at the Parkers. Out of NOWHERE, Preston came down with a throat infection Wednesday, complete with fever and a really bad cough. That, coupled with a little tumble he and Miss Paige took down the stairs Thursday (I had to keep him home from school while I went to work) that required us going to Green Clinic to have his foot x-rayed (it is fine) made for a tiring, busy and not so happy couple of days.
However, things started turning around when Nana and Pop came Saturday morning to take P to the circus in Monroe. I can tell from all of his vivid descriptions that he had a great time. His favorite moment, when the clown "lost his pants!"
And today was just a great family day at the Krewe of Highland parade in Shreveport. We almost didn't go, because of the earlier mentioned cough and chilly weather, but by the time we got to Shreveport around 2:30 it was a BEAUTIFUL day! Preston really did have a blast hanging out at the CTB tent with Cullen and Anna Kate (notice he snuck a sugar from AK!) and had his "Throw me something Mister!" down PAT! I will admit I have never been much for North Louisiana Mardi Gras celebrations, but this was a great time and we will definitely do it again...
Happy Mardi Gras!!
