Here’s Persephone (my daughter) with Persephone (the float):
Also pictured: Persephone’s father and grandparents.
In fact, this morning we got a tour of the Rex den from the very kind Dr. Stephen Hales, who also took the photograph. It’s my parents’ first Mardi Gras as well, so this is all new to them. I think they appreciated the tour most of all.
I was also interested to read a story about Rex getting involved in the public schools in yesterday’s paper. Another Katrina effect.
