Mardi Gras Fun for Kids

So I'm running a bit behind this week on updates to my blog but with good reason. Last weekend, we ventured to Galveston for the Mardi Gras parades and found some great fun for kids. We caught the tail end (pun intended) of the Pet Parade that started at 1 pm Sunday and then stayed for the Childrens Parade at 2 pm. Kylie really enjoyed these events. She appreciated the extra help from Aunt Susan & friend Drew in catching stuffed animals, beads, cups & kids-friendly items. As a parent, I appreciated these parades because they featured lots of cartoon or kid program characters and strayed away from more adult content. I highly recommend this FREE activity for families next year. While we saw some parking lots that charged $10 per space, we had no problem parking along the street for FREE and the weather was gorgeous on Sunday. Plan ahead. See for details on the 2007 events.

Tune into 93Q's Morning Show tomorrow morning as the Kids Activity Queen gives parents & grandparents some fun things to do with Houston kids during the month of March. The radio station might even give away complimentary copies of the guidebook 100+ Activities for Houston Kids. Tune in!

Until the next nap time...
