Beads and costumes and music…oh my! Mardi Gras time has to be one of the most fun times of the whole year. Although Mardi Gras itself in New Orleans may not be the ideal place for young children and families, the celebration in Lake Charles, Louisiana is fit for all to attend! Are you interested in experiencing Mardi Gras the Lake Charles way? Read on to learn more about this one-of-a-kind Mardi Gras experience happening in late February.
Behind every outing is a chance for learning. When my sister graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design, I was thrilled to be able to take my boys along to celebrate. Nothing encourages education like achievement, and my sister had accomplished something great. My children sat through name after name being called at the graduation ceremony to hear her name and celebrate afterwards.
Although a college graduation was the primary purpose of our trip, it became evident that with such history and culture in Savannah that we had to take our trip to an educational level ourselves. I honestly believe the best form of learning for my boys is learning on the go. They are always intrigued by history, ecology and exploring this planet, so this is what we set off to do.
