Pre Parade Festivities

King PD rode in the Krewe of Orion parade on Saturday evening. It was an exhilarating, special and exhausting weekend! On Friday night, most of the King's 150 guests arrived in Baton Rouge. He hosted a welcome cocktail hour where he bestowed his special beads:

Once he gave the special King's polystone, PD would then autograph the back:
This was also a time for some last minute paperwork:
And to show of the royal bling:
My friend Stephanie had a birthday on Saturday and invited seven friends to join the celebration. One of those friends ALSO had a birthday on Saturday! So PD took a photo with the birthday girls:
After the reception, we all met down by the river to watch the Krewe of Artemis' parade.
Stephanie before:
And after:
Even Gma came down for the fun!
She wore her special pin all weekend and told me that with everyone asking to take her photo she "felt like a celebrity".

After the parade we scattered around downtown Baton Rouge. Despite our best efforts to get a good nights rest, Chris and I stayed up until 4am. We just couldn't go to bed when we were having so much fun with all of our out-of-town friends!

I still need to write about the King's Party (happened a few weekends before the parade) but I'm waiting on photos from one of my sisters-in-law. I'll leave out the names to protect the guilty. But her name rhymes with "YoYo". ;)

  1. G'Ma WAS a celebrity! And she looked fabulous at the ball - so did all you beautiful young ladies, and the guys in their tuxedos. Post more photos!
