Fat Tuesday

Mardi Gras Decorations are everywhere

Cool float in the Zulu Parade (started at 8am and was still going at 2pm)
Notice the beads hanging - The Zulu's hand out painted coconuts but we didn't get any. :(

These guys were dancing and having a great time

Did you raid the Bond inventory room for CDs? Interesting outfit choice.

Woo Hoo! The release did get installed at the first client around midnight of Fat Tuesday. Sounds like a good reason to celebrate! :) We miss breakfast at the hotel as they decided it was a good day to stop serving breakfast at 10 instead of 10:30. Nice. Love it. We check out and pull our luggage to Mike's next hotel (a Hilton Garden Inn right around the corner). The checkout lady acts surprised that we are upset and then tries to tell us that we could have been moved earlier. We start dropping the names of those we spoke to along the way. She says she will not charge us for the frequent traveler points. We will see. We will see.

As we walk into the Hilton, it is astonishing how wonderful it is. Nice, clean, friendly staff. Mike says, "I am home." Of course, I think Hilton and Hampton Inn's do have him for a significant number of nights, and it probably rivals his home bed. :) We get to the room and it has a nice King bed. I am jealous. :)

We go check out the Zulu parade for a bit and say bye to our jewelry making friend Leroy. We head off to the airport in a cab. Mike is picking up a rental car, but he stays with me for a bit. Of course, in typical Amy fashion, my flight is delayed again. I was supposed to land at 6:40 so that I could get Morgan from cheer at 8:30, but that plan is out the window. Grams has already flown home, and I should have expected it when we planned the departures and arrivals. It wasn't so bad though. Mara took Morgan home, and I got her from there around 10:10. It is good to be home. :)
