We (DH and myself) as well as our son with his DW and three children, and our daughter with her DH and 4 children, went to the family safe Mardi Gra in Galveston yesterday for about 4 hours. LOTS of walking, people, beads, OH and did I say walking?!.... I had a huge bunch of beads thrown my way, at me, and bouncing of my head, OUCH! There was even a man shooting beads up into the air with a small hand held canon....

Our son and his DW (YES, he IS that tall)

I used my cane all day to help with my balance and to lean on when my back started to have spasms. All the way home I had severe arm cramps and spasms..... won't be doing that again anytime soon. But we had a blast riding the ferry across the bay with everyone and seeing the kids faces and excitement when they watched the dolphins, pelicans, and sea birds. The boys were very excited every time a huge tanker would get close to us.....
