Then on Saturday it was off to the Kids Parade in Lafayette. Trace was in a trance the whole time watching the floats and bands march by. He was a little afraid of the fire truck as it got closer; but otherwise, he loved it! He would put on every bead handed to him and I would have to sneak a few off of him when he wasn't looking, so they wouldn't weigh him down. He also got two stuffed monkeys, a football and a pink rubber duckie, which he held on to the entire day...and chewed on, which I thought was disgusting. But hey, it's Mardi Gras! :)
After the parade, we went over to my uncle's house for a mini family reunion and lots of food! :) Trace loved meeting his new cousin, Gavin, who is almost 6 months old. So sweet!
Oh, and one last random pic...Trace got a basketball goal from his Uncle Eli for Christmas. We put it up last weekend and he's been hoopin' it up ever since...lookout Shaq, here comes Trace!
