Mardi Gras Parade 2009

The First Family makes its way down Wilson Blvd on Fat Tuesday (photo thanks to Jennifer Hart, Arlington), and they're followed by Gov. Palin, below (photo thanks to Bono Mitchell). I appreciate these as I was stuck at home and missed all the fun. My daughter Charlotte represented the family, kindly chaperoned by Mike Rhode and his daughter Claire.

What a great Parade.
We have the Rodeo in town this week and we have the Longest non-motorized parade in the World. Lots of Horses, Wagons and Marching Bands. . . Yeeha !
Also Match-Play. . . Tiger is back and playing golf so another type of Parade. .
