Cajun Fest

Last night we went to Northern Lights Casino in Walker, Minnesota for the annual Cajun Fest. It is a VERY mini Mardi Gras! There is lots of music and a small parade of people that throw lots of beads. Matthew and Grandma Lucy dancing to the music with Auntie Susie looking on.Look at the adorable hat that I bought for Matthew at the gift shop at Northern Lights!
Matthew got some beads from a woman passing by who thought he was so CUTE! He also got a glow brackets from his Auntie Mandy.
The start of the parade!
Grandma Lucy and the Grand Marshall of the parade.
Lots of fun costumes and fancy masks!
A few more set of beads! Matthew didn't know what to think of the the FUN people!
Waving to the people with Daddy's help.
The parade marches down the center aisle and then back up again.
Matthew and all his beads when the parade was all over.
We had lots of fun and Matthew got to stay up WAY past his bedtime. It was after 10 before we left Walker. We had about an hour drive home and Matthew was sleeping within the first 5 minutes. We had a good time talking and visiting with my sister Susan and her husband Wayne who rode with us.
