Laissez les bon temps rouler

French for “let the good times roll”……which is exactly what we did last Saturday in celebration of Buck-a-roo’s 6th birthday. 
His actual birthday isn’t until March 6, but we took advantage of Mardi Gras falling so late this year to throw him a Mardi Gras themed birthday party to coincide with our local parade. 
We started a local Mexican restaurant (great for children & adults {wink!}) and each child got to decorate their own “bead bag” for the parade.

We ate finger foods and had cake, two kinds!
Traditional (except for #6 shape) King Cake…..

And cookie cake, per the birthday boys’ request!
{6 letters in his name…..he’s turning 6…..perfect!  Do ignore the fact that his mother snapped the ‘L’ in half as she was placing it on the cake}

  6 candles or 5, some lit and some not because of wind…..it still worked and Buck-a-roo was elated!!

Because I enjoy looking back and maybe you do too…… past posts on Mardi Gras (2009) and (2010) and Buck-a-roo’s birthday party last year!
